Now What?!

November 1st, 2010 at 01:37 pm

It's been a whirlwind month and a half.
We are pretty much settled in to the new house.
Spending has been crazy, savings non-existent.

I am feeling quite anxious to get back on track.

We went from paying off debt to enjoying life while saving for the house, to spending NOTHING while the house deal was going on, to having to spend everything on the house and moving and necessary furniture, to not having any more cash - yet things still need to get done that require money.

We are starting to realize what our monthly bills will look like now that we are homeowners...I am not too afraid... but all of my budgets are on my personal computer which has yet to be hooked up. I feel a little lost without that information and my spreadsheets. I feel like I am not in control, or being held accountable.

The husband and I are going to spend the next 2 months making things work, then we are going to start FRESH come January 1.

We just made our FIRST mortgage payment... only 359 left to go.

My son started High School this year... so College is coming up quickly...[[scary!]].

So much to do and plan for - I am ready to tackle it all and to start enjoying this new chapter of our lives. =)

    Congratulation on the new house!

    I would be getting your computer up and running, so you feel you that you have some control over your money. Tracking your incoming and outgoing is the key.

    Glad to get the update. You are right it will take a little time to get settled in. You will feel better once you start tracking/budgeting your money again.

    Just noticed you're updated sidebar. You work from home - Lucky! Everyday?

    Congrats on getting in... and there is always a lot of work that leads to getting settled in a new place. This is normal, and you will do great. You have the tools and the experience to make it happen, which means that you have some insurance that you will be on top of things financially sooner than later. Good luck with the transition, you can do it!
