Debt-Proof Living

Friday, August 8th, 2014

Debt-Proof Living By Mary Hunt Mortgages, credit card balances, student loans, car loans, and home improvement loans have become a way of life. All that debt is putting not only our present at risk as we live paycheck to paycheck but our futures in jeopardy, as shockingly few of us have enough put away for […]

You Took My Job!

Friday, May 31st, 2013

First posted May 1, 2009 Obama still wants to give illegal immigrants a “pathway” to become legal.  I’m sorry, but that pathway should have started at the border.  Instead, they enter illegally and continue to break the law on a daily basis.  I know that Obama wanted the Hispanic vote and a good way to […]

How Bad Is The Economy?

Friday, February 22nd, 2013

I saw this over at The Looking Spoon and just had to share it with you.

Are You a Shopaholic?

Friday, September 28th, 2012

I recently read a book titled Confessions of a Shopaholic.  Is this a book you could have written?  Do you really enjoy shopping a lot?  Do you shop when you’re sad or depressed?  Do you shop when you’re bored?  Do you shop when you want to celebrate?  Do you shop just because you deserve to […]

The Struggle Continues

Friday, May 27th, 2011

The fitness struggle resulting from my accident in January.  Today I’ve had one of my worst days since that accident.  The irony of it.  I was seen by Dr. G two days ago, and he signed me off as being at maximal something or other.  In other words, this is as good as I’m going to get […]

The Fitness Struggle

Friday, April 22nd, 2011

 This is a struggle I’ve been having since January 2nd of this year when a kid rammed into the back of my car while I was stopped at a traffic signal.  That’s not my car, but you get the picture.  This kid received a traffic ticket and I received a disability.  Even though I was wearing my […]

Finally, Financial Fitness

Friday, October 29th, 2010

Well folks, it finally happened.  Not only did it happen, it happened before the deadline I had set for myself.  My goal was to be completely out of debt by the end of 2010.  I beat that deadline by two months.  It feels good tremendous! You can do it, too.  I had managed to pile […]

2010 Fitness and Finance Goals

Friday, January 8th, 2010

I don’t make resolutions, but I do have goals.  I tried to find a post about my 2009 goals, but couldn’t.  Maybe I didn’t let you all in on those goals.  I’ve met two of my big financial goals.  I’ve paid off two whoppers. A credit card and a loan.  My goal for this year is to pay […]

Is It Really a New Decade?

Friday, January 1st, 2010

I guess that depends on whether you’re someone who actually thought the beginning of this century was the year 2000.  Those are all the folks who thought the counting of years started with year zero rather than year 1. Maybe when they learned to count, it was zero through nine.  I was taught one through […]

80% Unemployment Rate

Friday, August 21st, 2009

CNN’s “State of the Union,” host and Chief National Correspondent John King tells the story of the bare bones life on the Cheyenne River Reservation.  Read this article and see why I cry for the Lakota nation.  This is why my group is so focused on sending mittens, socks and other warm clothing to CRR.  I […]
