The Good, The Bad, The Ugly

There are many times that we go through trials and wonder what good will come out of it. In the past several weeks I have seen God work in our lives.

The Bad
Two weeks ago Emma was sick with rotavirus. She had a lowgrade fever and diahrea.

The Good
Of course she and Isabel stayed home all week with Eddie. This was good, cause it allow the girls to have some alone time with their Dad, and to also give us the chance to get Isabel potty-trained.

The Bad
We've been living with debt for about a year, since Emma was born. I hate it. We struggled to get our tax money on time, but did it.

The Good
We totally have changed with way we look at money. We have become savers and not just excessive spenders. The Lord has now blessed Eddie with more cabinet work, and 2 part-time jobs apart from his full-time fire-fighter position. Now we will attack the debt with a vengence

The Bad
I have goals to meet at work. I'm stressed about one of the projects, which I have doubt that it will be completed on time.

The Good
I'm learning a new programming language. I feel that I'm growing in my education.

I understand the debt monster issue. When Paul got out of school,we already had some debt built up, and then babies came right away (unplanned - which is why when I hear a kid say "I'm not having any kids" I just laugh and laugh...). The debt really put a strain on everything. Don't deny yourself excessively - be realistic. You can kick it. Be patient, though. It won't go away overnight.
