I woke up, read a few scripture verses, and went to drive for Uber. It was a slow day, so in between deliveries I quickly organized my bank accounts and binder wallet for optimum usage. I think I might actually do a decent job this time! I labeled my accounts to reflect what I’ll be using them for and I’ve read a fair number of articles about budgeting/saving tips from Dave Ramsey’s website. He says to save up a $1000 emergency fund first, then pay off debt starting with the lowest balance first so that success seems to come faster. 🙂 I think I’m going to try that approach, but first SSFCU–second lowest–and then discover–lowest, because I’m for sure closing SSFCU. The only benefit to keeping it open is to have a lower APR, but if my plan is only to use credit cards when I know I can pay them off every month, then the APR doesn’t matter. I do like the idea of not having credit cards, but I like the idea of being rewarded for my spending even more! With my first two credit cards, I did really well with paying them off every month. Then, I did a balance transfer and everything went down hill. So, for sure no balance transfers! IF I do, then I’ll have to make sure I don’t use any cards until the BT is paid off.

Anyway, after Uber, picked up Lydia from school. She read Harry Potter while I started deconstructing the big tv stand. Halfway through, we went to get Naomi. Then, I came home and finished before going to do Uber again.

When I came home, I worked a little on MG.

I woke up, read a few scriptures, and left to drive Uber.

I came home and watched GMW.

I picked up Lydia and took her home.

I drove Uber again.

While driving Uber, I listened to Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets.

I woke up and went to drive Uber. I came home and started working on building my new bookcase. Then, I went to get Lydia and finished the bookcase while watching GMW with her. After getting Naomi, I went back to do more Uber. I came home to rearrange my books on my two bookcases, but can’t find the pieces to put the shelves on the new bookcase, so I organized some stuff. Then, I laid in bed until 2am instead of going to sleep.

I woke up, read a few Bible verses, and went to drive for Uber Eats. This week, I made approximately $10.75 and hour for 28 hours of driving! Not bad.

I went to Nanny’s and we watched 48 hours. Then she and Papa told us there’s a true crime novel about Rome, Ga! Nanny bought it, because she misplaced hers, and I’m gonna read it when she gets it! I’m also going to read the book I’ll Be Gone in the Dark: One Woman’s Obsessive Search for the Golden State Killer.

I woke up and noted my miles and pay for the past two days of Uber Eats.

Then I drove for three hours.

I came home, picked up Lydia, and took her to the house before going to the bank.

I came home, ate, watched GMW and went to church for Prayer and Worship Night. Sarah of course brought great words between songs and picked awesome songs! I really felt the spirit during “One Thing Remains” And nearly broke down during “Defender.” ❤️💔💖

Went to Walmart, came home, didn’t do much of anything.
