It’s been a couple of months since my last posting and the storm has passed. The threat of potential layoffs has gone. However, that doesn’t mean that I’m letting my guard down.
Over the past two months, I’ve been working on personal and career development. This meant turning off the television and reading a book or two! I have not watched the news during this time – at all. I cannot change what’s going on down in Washington. I cannot change what’s happening around the world. What I can change is myself. It feels so much better having control over something and watching that change happen!
Part of this change is knocking down my student loans down by almost $2,000. Now I am down to $7,900! I was able to bring it down by selling U.S. Savings Bonds, items on Amazon, and sacrificing. If all goes well with my tax return, this loan might be paid off by the summer!
With Spring right around the corner, I started to grow my pepper, tomato, and annual seeds on the sun porch. This year brings many variates of tomato plants and a new greenhouse! I look forward to writing more about my seedlings and the progress of this year’s garden.
