Things have been crazy for the first half of the year. Things were going to happen and then things did not happen. As I did last year though, I am doing updates through out the year of things I wanted accomplished this year. You can check out the post which tells us what happened in 2016 and what I am going after in 2017 here. So lets look at where we have made it so far!
- I have to quit smoking again :(. This time it will stick though because of surprise reasons.
This hasn’t happened yet, I have a date though.
- Moving back to the small town.
- Than buying a place in said small town.
These two go hand in hand now actually. There was a place we were going to move into for a time being but things fell through. It was for the better anyways.
- Dealing more with clients in the office.
It is tax time so I have not had much contact with anyone really. Things are a little different from last year though.
- Making sure things stay caught up in the office. Keeping the new procedures in place.
We are not quite there yet. This has become more important than ever though.
- Having my debt cut in 1/2 from what it was at the beginning of 2017.
Here is the big one. Now I have not and will not post amounts of monies owing for obvious privacy reasons. It was not the biggest amounts but when you live pay cheque to pay cheque it makes quite the deal on a budget. I was able to go back and check what I owed on one of the debts in the beginning of the year. Two debts have been paid off as of March 2017.
At the end of the first quarter I have paid off exactly one third! Give or take a couple dollars of course. This means having the half paid off is very close. I chose only a half because sometimes things happen and changes need to be made. I have had to alter my payment plan and expectations more times than I want to admit. I will do a full post on this in the near future.
- Staying on top of the blog.
Clearly this has fallen behind. No need to go into it any further.
- Keeping my time and life organized.
I did try to start working on this but tax season happened. This has become even more important now. I just need to find my own personal system that works for me.
If I am going to be honest things with the blog are going to change a little. It will still be a personal blog but with new topics. I have said that before in the past and I still have my heart set on previous series. Things cannot be forced when it is not their time.
