April 2011 Update

Has it been a month already?

I don't have much to report, but I'll give it a go just the same. I had the timing belt replaced on my car finally. It had been plaguing me, so I'm relieved to have had it done.

I'm still debt free. Mostly. No, no, it's not like that. I'm not back-sliding, as they say. I've been very careful about paying off any debt every month. The savings picture is OK. Not great, but OK. The auto repairs -- the timing belt replacement in particular -- weren't cheap. And there were a few other things, including the blender (which I still love), a couple of sweaters, and other treats.

I've also joined a gym. To make life easier I've already funded the account that the dues are coming from. I won't have to worry about it until next year.

What else is going on? Let's see ... Oh! I'm shopping for mattresses tomorrow (finally!), and I plan to buy. I was hoping to wait until I received my home buyer credit, but I have no idea when that's coming and I owe it to my back, which has only gotten worse in the last year, to go ahead and take care of it sooner rather than later.

All in all, things are good. And that's no April Fool's joke. :-)
