Still here...sort of

March 26th, 2011 at 09:38 am

hey everyone,
It's been over half a year since I last posted. Wanted everyone to know I'm alive and doing well.

I've been doing extensive renovations on the 2nd property that my husband and I bought last year. the reno has gone way over budget and way over deadline but is nearing a close.

I lost interest in saving money for a long time because we were spending more money per week then we were earning in a month. I didnt feel like posting numbers and getting scolded, I didnt feel like posting numbers and depressing other people who didnt have a hundred dollars to spend, let alone what I was spending.

But its a few weeks from move in. I dont know if I'll return to my love of money blogging or not.

But all of my dogs are alive! And I'm still happily married. BB is in FL for another season of coaching and he loves it. I'm still in Savannah and I still love it. This is my dream city, and now I own a dream home (my original house) and a dream location (renovated house).

I still have my job and aside from extreme stress causing me to be always sick, I'm healthy.

Sorry for the concern and the months of no responces.

    Nice of you to check in! Sounds like you are on track, doing what you planned. And yes, I noticed you were missing!

    That's the thing about a blog like this, it leads you feel accountable for stuff! Wink I think it is great that your place is almost done, and don't beat yourself up that it went over budget... there is never any insurance that these kinds of projects will not cost more than expected. Just keep trying and enjoy that dream city of yours!

    I am so glad you are back. I have missed you. Of course it cost more than you expected to redo your new home, it always does. My husband is a licensed contractor and it always costs more than his estimates.
    I hope you continue to pop in once in a while and let us know how you, bb, dogs and the houses are all doing.

    BTW, did BB ever have his surgery?

    Yay! I'm so glad to hear from you.
    That is so exciting that your new home is almost ready to move into. I hope you'll share pictures when it is all done!

    Wow it has been a while! Yes, BB had back surgery and it went spectacular! It was a long recovery and he is still in rehab but he feels amazing. His attitude has changed, he is so happy and we are both so relieved it worked. I'll be back when I have more time.
