It's been a long time since I blogged. I've been in a very bad place lately. Very depressed, very angry, I lost my way.

My grandfather passed, I started spending again, I lost the willingness to even budget. I was spiraling out of control. I think I have my feel firmly planted now.

My basement problems are still not solved. I had a company come in for a free inspection, told me it would be like $10,000, I told them to get out of my house. There is another company coming on Saturday to look as well, we'll see what they say.

I want to get a better hold on my finances. I transferred the balance of my sears card(~7500) onto a Discover w/0% int and onto a Capital One w/0% int. I stopped the debt snowball to help out with school cloths for the kids, but now I'm starting back up.

I just purchased YNAB. I did the demo for 7 days but what does that really give you. If I don't like it I have 30 days to say so. I think I'm going to though, I need to dig in, fight the urge to spend.

I also just ordered the book Debt is Slavery. My local library is trying to get it for me.

It's time to begin again!!!!

    It isn't about how many times you fall, it's how many times you get back up, right? I am sorry for the tough times, but to your credit you did not let it lead you to stay down. Hang in there, and you will have some insurance that you can manage things appropriately. Good luck to you!
