13 in 13 - January Update

1. Sell 150 items: 
6 items sold (one still awaiting payment).
A little financial setback put the online selling on hold for over a week.
Slow but I am plugging away.
Not much in new stock.

Only hit three out of four weeks.

I have been trying. :)

7. Save Money: 
The husband's work took money out twice for insurance we did not sign uThis month did not save a penny.p for.
Then something he signed up for online took $79 dollars from his account. He got that money back but it caused overdraft fees.
We have paid all our bills but had to borrow a few bucks from the in-laws.
Next payday the insurance money will be refunded. That money will be socked away and the paid back.

8. Watch More Movies:
Dark Shadows
Total Recall
Bourne Legacy

9. Improve at Work: 
I caught up on filing.
I have all the clients seen.
My supervisor went on vacation a couple weeks ago. It was tough to get through with all of us covering what he does daily. Then he called in with a fractured ankle. He's been out for weeks. When he comes back he will be in a wheelchair. While we all want him to have a good recovery there are only 3 of us in the department besides him and it has been tough to cover it all.
I nearly had a breakdown last week. Every day is an adventure when you don't know what might come your way. I just do what I can in 8 hours and play catch up the rest of the week.

10. Take a Real Vacation: 
This is still in the planning phase.

11. Try Something New: 
Tried a different sandwich at Subway

12. Reduce, Reuse, Recycle: 
The husband cashed in all the tin cans.
The husband also made a frame for one of my pictures out of spare wood. Painted it with spare paint.
We got the burn barrel set up. I am starting to separate what can be burned from the rest.

13. More home improvement: 
Put up the shelf in the second bedroom
Put liner in the drawers
Organized the closets
The husband fixed the back steps, no more leaning and stones underneath to prevent sinking from digging dogs.
