Bills are all current. Finally.

December 5, 2017 6:14am CST
So I've been awake for hours even though I have a long day ahead of me. I've paid off my cell phone in full, no more past due bill and no more late fees. I've paid off my electric bill in full. I have upgraded to faster speed home internet to allow for better gaming for the kids and of course for their homeschooling since the library is over 3 miles away so that is paid and current. I also have several small miscellaneous bills that will be current as well. All this time and a half at work will make sure my rent for January is paid on time (and two weeks early like I prefer). I'll have close to 20 hours of time and a half on my next check. Taxes, social security, Medicare, my health insurance, and my work shoes will be deducted from my check and then BAM! My rent will be paid. lol I'll be broke but everything will be current for the first time in a long time. I've only had one day and I won't be off until next Tuesday but I did manage to take the kids to the mall on Saturday and then to the movies to see Thor Ragnarok on Sunday. We had a great time. I'm going to surprise them later this week by actually purchasing a Christmas tree. They're going to be so excited. I can't wait.

That is great news, I''m glad things are looking up for you and close to the holidays also. Hope with this overtime it will help make your christmas a good one this year as well. Keep up the good work and hope your kids like the surprise of getting the christmas tree.

The kids have already gotten their gifts from me this year. They each got a brand new $60 game. Then I took them out to eat lunch twice. I also took them to the movies. I've gotten them some smaller miscellaneous items free at sears with shop your way rewards points, BUT it has been years since we have had a tree and they will definitely be happy.

@acrogodess well that's good. Hopefully you can get them a little something more to open on christmas day though. If not just having a tree will cheer them up i'm sure.

I'm still anxious, but I'm sleeping better most nights now that the kids are home.
