It’s QUIZ TIME, friends!!

Good day, all!

I recently found this fun little financial assessment quiz over at Budgets Are Sexy. It only takes a couple of minutes to complete – all you have to do is answer each question with Always, Sometimes or Never.

For all you financial voyeurs out there, here are my answers!

2018 financial goals – April update

For the first time ever, I’m typing out a post sitting in a lawn chair in our front yard, enjoying a beautiful spring day (all that’s missing is a cold brew in my hand… seriously, why don’t I have a beer?? ‘KIDS, ONE OF YOU GET MAMA A BEER, WILL YA?!’)! The sun is shining, there’s the lightest of breezes, my daughter is at a birthday party, G and our middle son are playing ball at the park, our youngest is out here with me ‘watering out plants’ with his Super Soaker… Life is good. Our April finances were decidedly not good, but life is good. And really, what more can a girl ask for?!

2018 financial goals – March update

it’s April 19th and I’m just finally sitting down now to do my March update. Which pretty much sums up 2018 for me so far… I don’t know why, but I just can’t seem to get my shit together, especially on the financial end of things. But more on that in a future post… For now, let’s get to our March numbers!

2018 financial goals – February update

February is over and things are finally – and mercifully – starting to calm down a bit. Junior curling is over, and we’re nearing the end of G and I’s mixed league, the boys’ hockey and A’s ringette. I can’t wait to have some control over my time again. And I can’t wait to start posting more again. We’re also already looking ahead to summer holidays!

As far as our February expenses go, they look absolutely TERRIBLE. But hear me out cause it’s not quite as bad as it seems… Let’s have a look!

2018 financial goals – January update

January has come and gone and it was a fab month, the highlight being a family trip with my parents, my brother and his family to an all-inclusive in the Dominican!! It was nice and relaxing and the kids had an absolute blast! They’re at the perfect age where they’re old enough that they can play (somewhat) independently and young enough that they aren’t yet surly, bored, embarrassed-by-their-parents teens. It was a special trip and we’ll cherish those memories forever!

Now, on to 2018 update #1 of 12!

2017 financial goals – December (FINAL!!) update

Well, here it is, the moment we’ve all (well, me anyways) been waiting for!!  The suspense is killing me – Did we achieve our 2017 financial goals??  Did we fail?  Did we pass with flying colours or just squeak by??
