So, it wasn't even remotely on my challenge, but I wanted to share a major goal achievement. I just paid off my credit card! That frees up about $80 per month, which can go towards paying off the student loans and a Match.com subscription.

I had a plan in place 2ish years ago to have all my debt gone by 2020. There have been some setbacks, I'm likely a year behind, but the first major step is complete!

It's a great way to look at this challenge and future ones. Sure, I didn't accomplish everything I was hoping to do, but I am closer to those goals now than I was when I started. I just need to keep moving forward and remind myself that I can accomplish big things, it just takes time and dedication.

This healthy pony is a tired pony. Last day of 1 of 3 jobs is Tuesday. My temp is still going, but I got an interview with the a school friday, so I hope that goes well. No new students, but right now that is ok:) I am so far behind. When I took on this theater play I was hoping not to be working so much, now they are on me to memorize!!!! Tonight is my first night off in a long time, so knit some memorize some....i live an exciting life hahaha. We are almost finished, time for some gusto !!!!

This week has been a bit all over the place, it's just completely breezed past me.
Managed to get out into the countryside, had an impromptu wander up to Kerridge which was nice and peaceful.
I've been on and off with music practice, mainly just fiddling about with the classical guitar. I've gotten a bit too used to the wider neck on it, playing the steel-string guitars feels really odd by comparison. :P
Took my eye off the ball a bit with varying my diet, haven't done any cooking because there's been too much going on. That said, I'm getting a bit tired of just copping out and doing either soup or rice, fish and veg so if anything, making the time to cook something different would be a reward in itself.
Also made a start on stripping the paint off the chest of drawers in my room, turns out there was a nice varnish under there to which the paint stripper has laid waste, so I'm going to sand it down and re-varnish it in a similar shade.
Today was chaos because of the entire heating system in the house being fixed; we finally have a decent boiler and radiators, so it was worth the fuss but pfff I might just take tomorrow to relax a bit. :zzz:

A rest day is just as good as doing it all in one day:) we all need a break once in awhile:)

I have the next round of healthy pony sign up going:) http://mlparena.com/index.php/topic,390824.msg1704807.html#msg1704807

We still have a few weeks to go!!!

You can do it everyone.

I have slacked, but mostly due to being at work or play practice from 7:00am to 10:00pm 4 to 5 days a week, but that will soon be changing:)

Recently I have been focusing only on drawing. Gaelic has been making me super stressed and that isn't helping with the amount of stress school is putting on me right now. I think in the next round I will just focus on drawing goals :) I want to try and finish out strong!

I wish I could get my emotions in check. My morning started out rough. Just husband being a bad sharer. Sad we fight over a video game...sigh. I just get frustrated be cause I am off to work so I want a bit of game in the morni g too...nope husband who has the day off was into his game....arg but it made me more mad is I am at work from 7:00am to 10:00pm...and he couldn't even sit next to me during his game. Nothing huge just an annoyance since I don't do things when I have a day off and he works. It was downer, but I moved on. Still waiting on word if I got a school job. I have an interview of Thursday, but it makes a huge mess in my schedule and I tried to call them over and over and I get it worked out but they won't call me back...sigh makes me wonder if I should work for them. Sigh. My current temp job just makes me so mad. I see one person gets hired on during a temp and I cant???? She just turned 20, no degree, not held a job longer than 6 months, verses me who has a consistent track record, management training, and more...blah. I have one worker who does an entire task, but will not complete it. So I go in do all the work to find out that all I need to do is click my name....ggggrrrr it's a known rule if you complete a task you click everyone's name who was assigned to the same task so we get more work done. Forgot my script at home so no study for the play. The play will rip into me again for not knowing my lines....tring hard to cry at work....i had bought junk food to eat...sigh waist money

I just need to through my self on a sofa and be dramatic *Rarity reference there*

Thanks for letting me get it out. My emotions control how I eat, and it's never healthy.

Congratulations, Crowning Glory! That's great news! :party:

---

This week has gotten off to a bit of a juddering start; I was all set to get some nice cooking done but the oven has broken. The hob still works, so I'm able to do things like rice, vegetables and such but most of the things in the house need a working oven. Luckily, I was sensible enough while I was in work to set a decent amount of money aside for any such emergencies, so my housemate and I went out and picked out a new one today and we're going to go halves on it; we'll both just have to live off of steamable things until Friday. :P
Had a bit of practice on the guitar, haven't been learning much new lately so I might have a crack at learning another song by the end of the week.
The weather has gone a bit nasty again so I'm not making any serious designs on going out in the country unless it warms up a bit. I'll just settle for going for a walk in town instead!

promise I'm still here guys :)

ugh what an awful few weeks of depression in our household! 

DH has once again taken on too many responsibilities which means I mostly leave him alone because if I can physically see him, he's having needed downtime. 

he's working more hours - this is good
he volunteered to build a large display at the annual LEGO club's display - this would be good, but...
said project turned out to practically require a degree in architecture to mathematically figure out HOW to build it - this is bad
Deadline is in two weeks - NOT GOOD
he has been sick with a new Thing each week since January - not good
he signed up to play EVE Online, made some friends, and is loving it - ohhhhhhhhh.

My IRS filings are late and I have to deal with things SOONER rather than LATER.
This year's taxes for both IRS and CRA are due and we always use what little refund for the upcoming house property tax... so also time-sensitive!

i tried to start journalling again... SO HARD... how was this so easy in middle school/high school?  Seriously I have years of my life poured in there, but it seems impossible to find 5 mins in a day to try and recall the smallest detail!!!!

i have forced myself out of the house on a walk TWICE this past month.  and it didn't feel good.  the only reward I got were Currently the treadmill is covered with above-discussed 8 baseplates of LEGO build so that is not an alternative.

I have started poking at my Duolingo Spanish again though!  I am somewhere around 20% fluency... but oh conjugations and question words...

now... off to the sign-up thread... i'm still trying to achieve goals!

Whew squirmy that is a lot to deal with. I feel your frustration. Big hugs, let it all out:) each steps gets you closer.

I know I said this before, but I had a horrible habit of eating fast good, AND eating supper. So yeah not good. It took 3 rounds to break that habit!!! But I slip maybe once a month. So all great habits take time. You will get there. See you in the next round.
