Time has flown by, I haven't updated since the end of March!

Mortgage update: I said goodbye to the 90k's! My current balance is $87,763.20. I continue to add an additional $1400 a month to the principle.

Swagbucks: Since I joined on 1/1/13 I have redeemed a total of $305 in CVS gift cards.

Purchases: My only larger type purchase was a new phone. My old one was about 6 years old and was no longer working well. I upgraded to a smartphone (Samsung Galaxy 3) The cost was $100 for the phone, and my monthly bill will increase $30 month for the data plan. Totally doable!

New windows: On hold. My 2 piece bathroom off my bedroom moved to the front of the remodel list when the toilet broke (so old it isn't fixable). The room is really very 1970's and needs upgrading. I joined Angie's list and found a fantastic contractor who I can use for all of my future upcoming projects, including the windows. What a relief! No more shopping around for contractors.

My mom's last surgery went well, but again it was a long recovery. It's been a rough year for her and I am glad that she seems to have turned the corner and is healing.

That's all for now. Life is good!

    Good job on the mortgage; it'll be gone before you know it. Smart phones are awesome, but expensive. I have the iPhone 5 and love it but I do have to admit that I think the additional $30 for data plans is pretty expensive.

    I just upgraded my phone yesterday. Smile Mine was a bit over 4 years old - the longest I've ever had a cell phone. So I feel like I got my money's worth.
