It’s been way too long since I’ve updated my blog! October was filled with the craziness of the MOPS convention in Dallas, Carina visiting, getting Oscar neutered, Hanson tour, and a couple of Sixers shows. Needless to say, I’ve been playing catch-up for a few weeks! I’ve thought to myself many times, Gosh, I need to update that blog! It seems so overwhelming at this point that I’m not even sure where to start.
Even though tour, I tried my best to keep adding one new ‘green’ resolution to my list each week. I haven’t posted anything, but I’ve been doing – and that’s really the important part! I’m hoping to set aside a few moments to get Fifty-Two Green up to speed!
I’ve found a new love/project! (I know, just what I need is something else to try to accomplish!) I downloaded a trial version of Adobe’s Photoshop and absolutely fell in love with it. Many of the first days of November were consumed with Photoshopping all of my photos from the Walk Around The World Tour. Alas, I’ll never be able to afford the program, but it was amazing to experience it for 30 days! I actually discovered that I had downloaded the trial for CS3, and CS4 is now out. I’m in the process of attempting to download the CS4 trial, and hopefully have the program for another 30 days! It really is an incredible tool and I wish like anything that I had a spare thousand dollars to drop on it. Alas, my financial priorities are elsewhere….
Speaking of financial priorities, I’m proud to report that Alex & I are officially out of debt!! We didn’t have much to begin with, but after listening to Dave Ramsey, we decided that we want to operate on a cash-only basis from now on. We paid off our car, my student loan, and our credit card. It was a thrilling feeling to close our Capital One account and be able to quote Dave: “What’s in your wallet? MONEY!” Of course we have many more ‘baby steps’ to accomplish, but for now, we’re very satisfied with being debt-free!
