This Feels Weird

Welp, things are really, really good right now mixed in with a little bad. It's a hell of a lot better than things have been for us over the past few years... that's for damn sure. We are both working at jobs that, for now, we enjoy. Neither of us is making a great salary but with both of us employed at the same time, coupled with the crazy amount of OT I've been putting in, we are bringing home close to a grand a week. ALL of our basic monthly expenses totaled up come to roughly $1800. So, we have about 2k extra coming into the house per month right now. For us, that's like winning the lotto every month. We are certainly well on our way to being financially secure here really soon. Luckily, we have been very on top of our bills despite a couple money-related crisis we've gone through in the past year or so. There is is no catching up to do in the rent and utilities side of things. Unfortunately, there are lots of other areas that we need to address that have been put on the back burner for far too long.

The car. It's old and frankly, I'm tired of it and I'm tired of fixing it. I'm thinking about saving up a couple grand and finding a used car. Not any used car though. It's gotta be a past model that when it was brand new, I fantasized about owning one. My life has been fucked up since, like forever, so let's use this sudden burst of responsibility to reward myself with a past dream/goal. I don't think that is over-reaching too much. And yes, I know getting an older car will come with yet more repairs. But, I'm okay with that. For now.

My marriage to Ernie. I need to stop procrastinating and get this divorce done and over with. What has mainly been stopping me is figuring out the whole process and finding the paperwork I need and filling all that crap out. Then I gotta find out how the whole court part works and where to file it, blah, blah, blah...
THEN I gotta figured out how to get it to Ernie to get him to sign them or whatever he needs to do. I have no idea where he lives now which requires me contacting him (shiver) and all of the complications *that* will possibly bring down on my head. So, here's my plan. I'm gonna pay a lawyer and than I'm gonna make this lawyer guy do all that shit for me while I sit back and hand him my money. Good idea, huh?

Old debts. And finally, it's time to clear out all of that old debt that has been weighing me down for what literally seems like forever. I can't wait till it is off of our backs.. for good. Luckily, we don't have much so it won't take long to recover from. I'll just start from paying back family loans and then work backwards by importance. After this is done, the sky is the limit.
