We are flush in cash

When I created our new budget last month, I must have put a lot more wiggle room in it than we needed. All the first-half-of-the-month bills are paid, and the second-half bills will be easily taken care of by next week's paychecks, so here I sit thinking, "There's no way we'll spend $900 on groceries, gas, and entertainment between now and next Friday."

Hobie and I both got raises recently, accounting for about $200 extra a month. I guess we're just used to having less money each month, and we haven't changed our habits at all.

So I think I'll be sending another couple hundred bucks to the Debt Snowball this weekend.

This feels really good.

Change that + to -

I've updated my net worth to our net worth over on NetworthIQ, and basically, I went from a positive $7200 net worth as a single gal to a negative $7200 net worth as a married woman. The overall picture isn't as bad as I thought it would be, and we should be back in black by the end of 2006, maybe sooner if we keep on task.
