060930-2006 goals update

September 29th, 2006 at 02:09 pm




1. keep better track of my spending- September was BAD for expense tracking…the good news is, October offers me a new opportunity!

4. continue to lower my overall debt - I started Jan 05 with ~$17K (out of which ~$4K were for a loan and the rest -~$13K!-pure cc debt) and, am starting Jan 06 with $~11K (with ~$8K for a loan and ~$3K in cc debt)... expect to be able to end Dec '06 with ~$7K, which I expect to be purely for the loan... to come partly from the English classes/$20 challenge. ...current situation is: $13.9K total: ~$8.1K (refinanced) loan, ~$2.8K car loan, ~$863 personal loan, $1.6K other personal loan… Phone bill is $500...a work in progress...another one that won’t get taken off the list!

5. Help Ale find a way to earn those $3 she's missing to open her account with HER OWN money...didn´t open the piggy bank in Sept…will probably wait until it´s full…she lost another tooth…but, since she LOST the tooth at school (and couldn’t find it!) Raton Perez only left her $0.50 –as a consolation prize!

    I much prefer 'Raton Perez' to the 'Tooth Fairy'! Big Grin

    LOL! I investigated and found out Raton Perez (or Ratoncito Perez) is a character created by Father Luis Coloma at the end of the XIX Century - probably 1894- who wrote the story at the request of Queen Maria Cristina of Spain, for her son Alfonso (later to become Alfonso XIII), who was then 8 and had just lost a tooth! -- how cool!... Ironically enough, the Cervantes institute states that the story itself is practically unknown in Spain!
