Hello! My resolution was not to use so many exclamation points in my blog. FAIL!
Oh well, isn’t that what resolutions are all about? I am not really making any resolutions this year. I just want this year to be better than last year. To be honest, it all ready is. (Exclamation point removed.)
It’s already better because this is the last Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Years I will spend in a Chapter 13 Bankruptcy.
This is the last tax refund / return that I have to send to the Trustee. That is huge. Its so stressful come tax season to either have to pay taxes because I miscalculated or to have to send her that extra money. This is the last year I have to worry about the trustee.
Next year I will be done. October 2017. When I started this journey in 2012 it seemed like decades away. I actually considered BK in 2007/2008 so its actually been apart of my daily life and worry cycle for a decade.
I am so glad to say that next year, it will be a done deal and I can move on.
I can only image what it will feel like next year!
I am finally there. The end really is in site.
Its still a very long way to go. I have many hurdles to jump until I get to the end. This year with my kid getting a car poses the biggest threat to my stability, yet it also will be a huge help. My car is dying so her new car will be our transportation when my car finally dies.
There are many other things that can go wrong, but there are also things that can go right and I am going to concentrate on those things.
There is one thing I think I would like to try to do this year. I would like to try to appreciate my job and my condo more. I need to be more in the moment. I need to appreciate Southern California too. Who knows, I might really hate the weather back in the Pacific Northwest. (I doubt it, but I might). So I am going to try to love my life as it is now. I need to stop wishing it away! (Exclamation point remains on purpose).
Well, I better get into my day. My kid wants to go to the gym. Yay!
Happy New Year my friends!
