Blissfully Happy

Holy cow!  I don't think I could be any more blissfully happy than I currently am.  Makes me think all our hard work (DH and I) is finally paying off.  As you saw in my goals update post, we've paid off our credit cards, which is amazing.  We were looking at our finances last night and just so happy to be where we are right now.  We're trying to figure out what our next financial goals will be.

Potty training is also going very very well.  I don't want to jinx it, but they just seem so much more ready.  Liam can be stubborn sometimes, but if I remind them that they can go back to playing when they are done and show them how happy it makes me and how proud I am of them, they seem to be very much on board with the whole thing.  Which was also great yesterday visiting the preschool they will be in full time starting the first week of September.  It hit me yesterday that in two years they will be in Kindergarten!  I mean when is this all happening???!!!  My babies are getting so big, but it makes them so much fun.  To see their facial expressions when they talk and their personalities really being all out there it's just fantastic.  Never thought it could be this good.

And Phoebe is the best too.  So smart and very together in her head.  She's going into 6th grade and she's taking PreAlgebra for math this year, which is the top math class they offer to 6th graders.  She's sounding so excited to go back to school, which is very different than years in the past.  She never really sounded like she liked school that much.  I wonder if now that she sees her hard work paying off, makes her excited to learn something new.  She was really funny last night at the mall with us and her friend.  I was hanging back listening to the two of them talk, as our daughter was going to buy something with her own money.  She was looking at new sunglasses since her old pair broke.  She said to her friend, "These are $12.50!" and her friend said, "Well, it is Hot Topic."  As in my daughter is being cheap with her own money saying she wouldn't spend that much on sunglasses and her friend is telling her it is a store that sells pricey stuff.  Cracked me up as they sounded like two old ladies.

Work has also had some strange interesting things going on.  I can only discuss them with one of the directors here at work and totally mum with everyone else.  I'm curious to see what will happen.  Basically my team may end up reporting into another area.  I'm OK with it and I think it's all great, although I know my director's boss, would probably not like it, but I don't think he'll get to have a say in it.  I think it would be better for me an my team though.

And last but not least, I'm going to the chiropractor this afternoon.  I'm very happy to get my lower back sorted out.  I also need to get back to exercising again, which I fell off the wagon again!!!  But I know one of these days when I get back on it will finally stick.  Saw a picture of Gwen Stefani with some amazing abs and all I could think of was, "I want that!"

I see lots of pictures of abs but that ship has sailed for me! Isn't being debt free amazing? I have a year left on my plan (boo!) but I can see the end of the tunnel. We have so much flexibility now and I love not having to worry. It's such a relief. But I'm also torn as to our next step as well. Squirreling away money is nice, but I feel like there is more to life.

So happy that you'be found yourself in such an amazing place. Here's to more happiness headed your way.
