Hi Everyone!

I haven't updated lately. I went on a business trip last week and put all my expenses on my rewards card and expect to be reimbused on Friday. With that debt sitting on my credit card though, it makes my credit card debt look slightly inflated.

I entered the amount that I expected to get back from my reimbursement into my YNAB register and used it to pay off that money that I spent. So when I do get the reimbursement, I'll send it all straight to the credit card.

DH also got his tooth taken care of, so that took about $400, which I had expected and budgeted. I told him that I'll be setting aside $50 each month for the dentist going forward, so he'll just have to wait until we have enough to do the next tooth. He's more interested in paying off our credit card debt right now as well, so at least we're on the same page.

His school tuition payment came out for $1 more than I had budgeted (my mistake, it came out for the same exact amount last month, so just an oversight on my part), so I took that $1 from his school books and moved it there. Not a big deal. Sometimes those things just happen.

Oh boy oh boy!

Is it October 1st yet?! I just looked at it and I'm going to leave us with $10 for one day so I can pay off my husband's school tuition payment from a credit card that just posted. I don't want to have to have my credit card balance go up! I'm sure he won't like it, but he can deal. I'm trying to do something here and his education is getting in my way. LOL.

I also have two job interviews scheduled on Friday. One is a recruiter who is trying to match me to the right company and the other is for a very famous resort as an accounting manager. Also, it looks like a controller position is going to come available at my old hotel, so I'll be posting for that once the position is online.

So hopefully, we'll be able to move back home to Florida before the winter really kicks in. That would be ideal. I already feel really bad missing my nephew's birthday. I spent so much time with him when I lived down there and when I last left to fly back to Chicago, he was really heartbroken. Also, once our finances are in better shape, I'd really like to start trying for a family of our own. We definitely have some work to do before then though.

Hopefully today at work will be better and more productive than yesterday. I'm still exhausted. It was just one of those days where I was getting a million phone calls and before I could finish one item, another would pop up (or be given to me by my boss). So I'll be going in a few minutes later today since I want to enjoy sitting at my table a little longer and I left 2 hours later than usual yesterday.

At least my husband was nice enough to make dinner!

Back to the numbers, I'm super excited and I know you guys are going to be very proud of me when I post September's ending number. I can't wait to get out of the $49k's for debt! Just $1k at a time, right?
