Four Letter Words: Snow, Debt & Gift

Remember on Friday when I mentioned that we might be getting hit by a snowstorm? Ohh....we got hit by it, that's for sure. I'd say we got hit with a good 8-10 inches at least. Did I have to go into work though? Oh, you betcha! My position is considered emergency personnel essential. What does that mean? That basically means, even if the world is coming to an end, I still have/need to go into work. I'm just hoping the weather doesn't get worse because my days off aren't until Tuesday. Ekk!

A little update on my 2010 goals: Out of 4 credit cards...I now have 2 of them paid off. Now I'm only 2 cards and a car loan away from being debt free!

So.....I've got some BIG, BIG, BIG news! I can't tell you till Monday though... I guess you'll have to come back then to find out what it is. Trust me, it'll be worth it. Let's just say more than one of you will be walking away with something (wink wink)!
