Getting Ready Before the New Year

The year is about to end very suddenly and without much notice, at least that is the way it feels like.

I can tell the coke nail on my left pinky finger is a bit too long because it's getting a bit harder to type using that finger which means I should totally bite it clip it.  Totally meant clip it, with nail clippers like the rest of the normal functioning world.

I've got a dog resting comfortably on my lap and my boy sleeping about 4 feet from me on a huge pillow so now is better than later.  Nail bitten off, lets go.

In preparation for next year I withdrew approximately 6 grand from my company stock account.  I have paid off a three thousand dollar debt and all that is left is debt from the wedding and honeymoon and the plan is to have that vanish by the end of 2015.

My goal is to get myself ahead so that I am not living month to month but I am living one month ahead.  So, All of my bills for January will be paid with Decembers money.  This will give me more focus and I will be working with set figures.  I already know what I made in December so while I am shopping or deciding to get an extra Big Mac for lunch I will be able to see how much money I have left until the end of the month.  I like this idea a lot an think it is going to help me focus and help me pay off the remaining of my debt faster.

I also am setting aside some of that money as Poker Money so that I can get back out and play once in a while, specifically during the Super Bowl and March Madness.

2014 was by far the most exciting year I have ever been a part of so that means I must be getting better with age right?  Getting married and enjoying my wonderful,but crazy, family has fulfilled me more than I ever thought possible.

2015 can only get better thanks to the birth of my spawn and pending one year wedding anniversary.  Nothing can top our Honeymoon (which I still daydream about lustfully to this day) but I'm hoping to be able to come up with something for the anniversary to make it special.  I've never been so in love in my life.

Today is Xmas Eve which means we will be heading to my parents house for Xmas Part 1, then tomorrow is with the in-laws for Xmas Part 2.

I will have my annual new years revolutions post of stuff I want to accomplish but I'm not going to look back on last year because this past year was freaking amazing and none of my goals actually matter compared to what actually happened.


  1. I will be in vegas with the wife super bowl weekend. Looking forward to some good poker games while she plays slots or

  2. So wonderful that you had such a fantastic year. And ... it looks like things will only be getting better in 2015. Yowsa!
