$20 Challenge - I need information

May 7th, 2009 at 09:13 am

I still don't understand the concept of the 20 dollar challenge.

Do we try to save $20 for a specific time period? Is this money we actually spend, or is it money we saved by not spending anything?

I'm still clueless here.

My Lawyer Called

May 6th, 2009 at 03:50 pm

My lawyer called and my husband accepted the offer and I'm going to go to her office friday to sign my divorce papers.

And because I'm giving him another 10% of the house equity, I will not have to pay him alimony. I'm so relieved and grateful to God.

And you know what? I cried off and on after I realized it was really going to happen. Not because I don't want the divorce, because - hey - I don't want to die, but because it meant the death of a marriage, and a part of my life was gone.

And now I look at all the things I can do. Simple things seem so wonderful - like being able to get up in the middle of the night and get on my computer without being yelled at. Like planting flowers. I've been going to Home Depot on my payday weekend and buying $2 worth of flowers. Marigolds wink at me every time I come home. My husband never let me have a garden. It feels so freeing.

My goals right now are - start small, but try to garden a little, fix the swamp cooler so it doesn't drip all over (and put the garden near it for the condensate), write a fantasy story and post on the internet, and take another belly dancing class!
