Maybe I Shouldn’t Have Been So Aggressive


Not too long ago, I paid a large amount to Credit Card #2. But now I am seeing the feared red coming up shortly for my checking account, thanks to a bill that I forgot about.

I didn’t get my normal statement in the mail for the water bill and it completely slipped my mind that it would be coming due (it’s every other month – which really screws me up). It’s only $55.00, but I really ran down my account paying the $1,000 to my one credit card. I just wanted to bad to pay that large chunk and I was probably a little too agressive.

I received my disconnect notice in the mail on Friday, and I have until the 12th to pay. My direct deposited paycheck should be in the bank by the 11th. If it is, all will be well. Even though I love direct deposit, I have had things go wrong before so I try not to always “bank” on it being there on time.

I need to really start focusing more on my forcasting – my method that I use that I will be explaining in a later post.

Everyone, send good vibes that my check will show up in my bank account Tuesday 🙂

A New Look that Better Represents my Attitude


If you are a returning visitor, you will notice that Blogging Away Debt has undergone a bit of a blog makeover since Friday. I spent yesterday trying to make a look that I felt represented more of who I am. I loved the picture I used in my old blog, but it just seemed too dark. And looking at all of the black sort of depressed me.

I’m actually very optimistic, and I hope it shows through in this blog. I do have my depressed days, but I know things will get better. After all, when you are at your lowest…the only way you can go is up!!

Maybe I should be known as the “Happy Debt Blogger” or something, because really I know there are great things in store for me and I know that I will one day be debt-free. It may take a while, but I will get there.

I hope everyone likes the new look 🙂
