$240K mark

May 8th, 2010 at 05:14 pm

Our mortgage finally hit the under the $240K mark, $239,427.71 to be exact. I took a look at the amortization table and with the $250.00 extra we send every month towards the principal, we're paying a little over $650 in total on the principal. I hate to look at the amount paid for the loan interest, a whopping $1,075.00 this month ;( . Oh well!

I completed Chapters 1-3 of my Teacher Action Research. I'll have a co-worker revise it and off it goes to my adviser. The entire TAR is due by July 5th if I want my degree by August. I think I'm progressing nicely.

I'd been on Weight Watchers program for almost two weeks and boy changing eating habits is so darn hard, but I've decided that it is time for a healthier lifestyle. I'm on my 9th day without soda (3 cans a day habit). If I get passed the 21 days without it, I think I'll be out of the woods. There are days that I crave it so very much. I received a Weight Watchers 20 minutes meals from my son's girlfriend along with a very nice message. I was touched.

Tomorrow we will be celebrating Mother's Day at my mother-in-law. My mom lives in the Caribbean; I'll call her first thing in the morning. I'm hoping she received her Mother's Day card today. Mail is a bit unpredictable (it can take between 4 to 7 days).

I hope you all have a nice Sunday and for all the moms at SavingAdvice.com, Happy Mother's Day!

    I find I drink a lot of coke in summer. now it's winter here I mainly drink tea, but what I found helped me in summer was plain mineral water with a piece of lemon, lime or orange. It's refreshing and healthy but still satisfies the need for something bubbly Smile

    You are right about how it can be hard to lead yourself away from food and drink habits, and soda can be one of the most addictive of all (from my experience). I had a huge Dr. Pepper habit for many years, but once you get past that point where you don't "need" it any more, then it isn't even as if you need. That is when you have some insurance that you are out of the woods. Good luck! 21 days will fly by...
