This time next year…

I will find out if I have an assignment to Europe and especially if I got promoted.  My HQ director told me I have an excellent chance for a move to Germany next year…woo hoo (will do a big happy dance if that happens)!  I have been looking forward to and dreading 2010 for a couple of years.  This blog is really more of a life journal than anything else.  Every year, I purchase a mini-notebook for my monthly budget.  I love looking at my progress or lack of discipline over time.  Lately, I have noticed that I do not run up large balances on my credit cards.  In the past, I would have about $1000 on my AMEX monthly–always paid off.  Apart from my dad’s trip this year, the credit card balances total about $200. 

Also, I have been taking advantage of eating at the club for free 3 nights out of the week.  Not really free…pay $18 monthly.  The dues are well worth it.  The club serves meals: Taco Tuesday, Pulled Pork Wednesday and etc…Membership night is once a month.  They usually have prime rib, ham and cocktail shrimp.  It is a pretty good spread.  Trying to eat more healthy.  Need to eliminate coca-cola out of my life and stop using nicorette.  I did go for a nice run outside yesterday.  The weather is wonderful now.  It is very hilly here and my body really needs the workout.  My physical fitness test is in April. 

I have so much to do between now and then.
