Not my best month. September is always stressful at work. This year was right on target. The new HR director and I are just not getting along. Since I process payroll this is not good. Well new month tomorrow hope to find a new attitude.
Debt is going down slowly but it is going down. Well not much else to say.

Not much going on. Still plugging along. Work has been stressful. There is so much uncertainty due to Covid. A new HR Director started about a month ago.She is struggling to get up to speed. I process payroll so things have not been as smooth as it could be.
Still making minimum payments on debt. Trying to conserve cash.

I have to start looking at the positive side of things.
I am still employed.
Had major plumbing issues this past month. My DF covered most of the the cost.
I am currently going into the office 4 days a week so that makes me happy.
Not much more to say.

Had a medical procedure at the beginning of the month. Results were not exactly what I wanted but could have been worse.
Set up a spot to work at in basement. So it is getting a little better. I also go into the office about 2 days a week.
Debt is going down slowly.

Still working form home. Still not liking working from home. Since I really do not have a desk, I am working my kitchen table. When I work at the office I felt cut off from people since I work in my own office. Now I really feel cut off. I also feel I am not as productive working form home.
Since there is so much uncertainty, I put my stimulus money into my savings account. My planned vacation was cancelled.

Still plugging along.
Working from home.
I do not miss my commute however I really do not like working from home.
I am not sending extra to my debt for the foreseeable future. I am trying to conserve cash in the event of a job loss.
Stay well everyone.

In June of 2010 the company I lost my job due to the company closing. I started at my present job in December of 2010. Took a 10 % pay cut but I was employed with good health insurance. I like my job unfortunately there have been no raises since January 2015. On the plus side the employee contribution to the health insurance has increased much over the last few years.
On 1/1/2011 I had 97,382.42 in debt. This was mortgage, credit card and home equity. Today this debt is down to 70,911.37. I no longer have a credit card balance. In April of 2018 I took out a new loan for my new to me vehicle in the amount of 12161.00. I now owe 8737.69.
I have always been behind in my retirement savings. I do not have exact numbers for what my balance was in 2010. I want to say it was around 60000.00. Today I have a total of about 145000.00.
