February 3 in 30 ~ A Mixed Bag

I just looked back at my February 3 in 30 goals, and well, I’ve hit both ends of the spectrum this month.  My Home goal involved continuing and improving upon my latest FlyLady attempt.  FAIL!  And I don’t just mean relative failure, I mean crashing-and-burning, never did my 15 minutes a day in the Zone once during the whole month failure.  Paying off credit cards?  Well, I paid off one – the smallest.  Not impressive.  My Happiness goal involved taking an online writing class this month.  I stopped participating after the third assignment.  I’m doing the work, mind you, just not on their schedule.  And I’m not turning it in.  The teachers were getting on my nerves.  I did submit query letters to three agents (still waiting on replies) and will get to hear a fabulous author speak tomorrow, but I can’t call this month a roaring success there, either.  Lastly, my Health goal involved decreasing this stupid neck pain I’m been suffering through for way too long.  I had an MRI, saw a neurosurgeon, and had a cervical myelogram.  Them yesterday, I FINALLY,  after over a year of constant severe neck pain, found out WHY I’m in pain.  My second cervical fusion never fused.  So I’ve been walking around with cervical vertebrae rubbing against each other and pushing metal fragments around in my neck for almost two years.  I’m THRILLED to finally have an answer, and a plan of treatment.  I’ll have my third cervical disc surgery on about a month and hopefully decrease my pain dramatically – my prayers have been answered!  And looking at it all in perspective, who really cares if my house is clean or not? 🙂

  1. One of my long term goals is to pay off all of my credit cards and eventually be debt free in that department. Over the years, I have learned the importance of paying for whatever I could in cash. I’m finally starting to see some real progress in that area and hope to continue to move in the right direction. Even paying off one small credit card is a victory. Don’t let that deter you from your ultimate goals. 🙂

  2. Congratulations! I agree with Tough Cookie Mommie about the progress on debt. AND, Hurray on getting a diagnosis that has a plan of treatment that makes sense! You made major major progress on the most important goal on your list, and that is no small accomplishment.
