We have some news and are taking a huge leap of faith!
My hubby resigned from his job 2 Fridays ago and his last day will be May 27th. He resigned so he can start his own business. Now don't freak out like I did at first. We started off on the right foot financially when we got married. Completed Financial Peace University (Dave Ramsey) and became debt free (except for our house) in 10 months. We paid off $28,000 in 10 months!!!! It is still crazy to me that we actually did that! We have been saving like crazy since then and have about 10 months of our expenses in an emergency fund. He created a blog called Christian Common Cents and has since sold it but still writes for it! So hubby is starting his iphone app/software business. He has several apps (Look him up on the app store: Derek Clark) He has recently released a budget envelope app that you can find here. He is looking into making software for this and an ipad app for it. We are both really excited about it because if it is successful, we can be much more flexible with trips, traveling to see family and so on because he can just bring his computer to work. Please keep us in your thoughts and prayers as we begin this journey!
I want to make a summer schedule for cleaning, exercising, and fun things. I know that this summer will be different because Derek will be home working and I won't want to be in his hair all day (his desk is in our living room because our town house doesn't have much room for it anywhere else). I'm so bad about keeping the house clean during the school year and then when I clean on the weekends, it takes me forever. So here it goes and let me know if I'm missing cleaning something...
Tuesday: Laundry/change sheets
Friday: FREE DAY!
Everyday: keep kitchen clean, keep things straightened up, and make bed.
For Fun activities:
Pool, scrapbook days, organize at home and at school, photography (I'm getting a canon rebel T1i soon for b-day/anniversary!!!!), recipes (cooking more/baking more), try to blog everyday and home projects.
-train for next half (The Women's Half-Nashville in September) at the end of June (hopefully my knees will be cooperating and healed)
-Jillian Michaels 30 day shred
That's about it for now. 7 more days until Summer Freedom...except it felt more like March today :(
