Hey guys – just checking in to say I’m starting to feel a little bit better. This whole allergy thing has really messed with my head this week. The weirdest and probably the worst thing has been that my allergy attacks come in the middle of the night. About one o’clock in the morning I’ll suddenly start sneezing and sniffling, which leaves me awake for about an hour or so while I fight it off, so then I’m worn out when I wake up in the morning. I finally took an allergy pill before bed last night and I slept like a baby completely exhausted woman. I’m still fighting the bad body image, but it’s not quite as strong as it was earlier in the week. So, I’m on the mend even if I don’t quite feel 100%. 

Still doing my marble-in-the-jar thing and even if I don’t get to add a marble, it’s nice to see those other marbles which reminds me that I am capable of having good days. So I got that going for me. 

We got our tax refund yesterday and so today I paid off my car and our credit card. Squeee!!!! I cannot tell you how liberating it is to pay off that damn card. This is the first time in the 16 years that we’ve been married there is not one drop of debt on that card. I got a little loosey goosey with it when I was a SAHM several years ago (need diapers? Put it on the card! Need a few extra groceries? Put it on the card! Need a fabulous pair of shoes? Put it on the card!)  and racked up a nice little chunk o’ debt. Nothing extremely horrible, but more than we could pay off at once. I have been chipping away at that debt for six years now and even without the tax refund, I would have had it paid off later this year, but now it’s free and clear! Woohoo! I’ma go buy some STUFF!! (relax, I’m kidding!) 🙂

That’s about it for today. Also wanted to say thanks for your nice comments on my last post – mainly just needed some rest to get my head on straight, being tired really jacks with me on so many levels!! 

You guys are the best!
