Time To Blog Again...Nothing Special, Just Updating

Ok, so since it's been almost a month since I've blogged I guess it's that time again. So I'll play catch up on what's been going on with us Jacksons.

First of all, we still love being in Duncan. It's such a great little town even though I will catch myself complaining of nothing to do at times. We're so blessed to be here with family, friends and our church family.

Second, we sold our BMW, a.k.a. "Beamie". I'm such a really, I am. I love expensive things, luxury, etc. It makes me feel good knowing that I have nice things and thinking that other people think that I have nice things too. Does that make sense what I just typed? Anyway, we're trying to decrease our debt, which is the smart thing to do because living with alot of debt is stressful and I hate it! I hate living paycheck to paycheck, not being able to spend money, and it's just not good. So since we sold Beamie, we'll be saving around $300 a month.

Now we're going to try and sell the SRX, a.k.a. "Bobo". That will make me even more sad; because of my dad I have an unnatural emotional attachment to inanimate they have feelings and stuff. We've had Bobo alot longer than Beamie and he (yes, Bobo and Beamie were both a "he"). So, the SRX is a really nice vehicle too. Then we're going to purchase a very cheap vehicle that we can pay off quickly and not have to make payments on very long. I just will have to swallow my pride when really I will want to tell people, "Hey, I may not have a nice car now but I used to have a BMW and a Caddy! Do you want to see my collection of Coach and Vera handbags?? See, I have nice stuff! Don't judge my ride!!" Gosh, that's so petty and wrong. I'm just shaking my head in disgust right now. I don't want people to judge me by my stuff so why do I judge others? Hard lesson to learn.

Third. We're thinking about going to Disney World again in December. This refers to the above "getting rid of debt" topic. We have to get rid of some debt in order to pay for this vacation. Duh, not rocket science.

Fourth. My weight loss is going superb. Since September I've lost 20lbs. However, I am going to kick it up a notch. My bestie and her friend were talking about posting a pic of them in their bathing suits on facebook around June or July. I'm totally in if I lose the weight. I'm such a negative person, again a trait from my dad, people have told me I look smaller and I say "thanks" but I also say "I can't really tell a difference". I should just say thank you and move on.

Ok, so we're also ready for spring storms but our basement isn't. We want to turn it into a media room/man cave but we have some sort of leak and our basement has like 6 inches of water in it! We've got to get it repaired for storm season. You never know with a winter like we had if the storm season will be more tame or be totally intense and since we have an indoor basement I want to use it!

So, I've filled you all in. Oh, and Larry and Princess are doing fantastic too :)
