February came and went. It was a pretty decent month. We missed our original goal by 38 dollars.
I can handle that.
The best part of this month was going to the bank to make that big payment. It’s actually ironic, because this was the annoying part of last month. This is because I pay everything online, and I like it that way. It’s easy and fast. Unfortunately, US bank only takes principal payments in cash, at the bank. Which is sort of ridiculous because this is the 21st century people, everybody takes a card. But the only way they accept a card, is if you have a checking account with them. I was pretty perturbed about this last month, but I have to say, handing over that cash in person, was liberating. It was like, take that interest! Bam!
Unfortunately the first day of March brought a big storm, dropping a tree on our beloved pontoon. While this isn’t an “emergency”, we plan to cash flow repairs. We are hoping it won’t be too bad (fingers crossed). The nice thing about this plan is being in a place where this won’t be catastrophic financially. I am just thankful it didn’t land on the house and no one was injured! We were able to get most of the tree cleaned up today. The whole family worked together and we got the job done! Abram supervised from the four-wheeler.
I am hoping March won’t be a total fail. I am going to be optimistic and say with some OT and a prayer we can still meet our goals!
