Lesson learned. Don’t try to put together a blog post at work, especially when it is math related. Yesterday I had a lot of down time at work. So I worked on my Net Worth for January 2013. When I finished it, I myself was very impressed with my growing Net Worth, which should have been my first clue that something was not right. I went ahead and posted it and it was definitely miscalculated. Thanks Sluggy and Tanner for keeping me honest. I have corrected it and and now moving on.
Oh, and yes we are upside down in our rental house. We refinanced before the bubble burst to put my husband through school and *poof* the market tanked! We still managed to buy our new home 18 months ago with the upside down mortgage on the rental. At the time I was working full time at a stable job for over 8 yrs and my income was enough to cover both mortgages. But, oh how things change!
But, God is in control even when I am not. So, I have learned to take it one day at a time and do the best I can for that day. I still like to plan for the future and set goals and dates for this and that but my experience is that God takes care of my family’s needs no matter how bad my math is.
That does not stop me from setting goals as I like to see the progress that I have made. I just don’t get to worked up about it when things don’t always go my way. If I did, I would pull my hair out.
Today I am going to try like heck to get at least five things listed for eBay before I take mom to her pre surgery appt and CT in Orlando. After that, mom says she is going back to her home until her surgery on Friday. But that can change. If she does go home tonight, I think I can get a few more things listed this evening. We will see……
I have to work the rest of the week… with Friday off of course for mom’s surgery. We are hoping she is only in the hospital for a couple of days after that.
Off to take pictures for eBay….. have a great Tuesday!
