It is true. I AM actually grown up!

Today, I made a very mature decision. Today is the sign-up for the Rockin' Sock Club. Oh, how I wanted to sign up this year. Who wouldn't?? Look above at just one of the offerings from the website. And I read blogs of people all excited to get their STR packages, joyously knitting up their socks.... Last year, by the time I was knitting socks and knew about it it was full. I had a computer reminder set to remember to sign up.... But the fee is 289.00 USD, and has to be paid up front. I actually went to my bank's online transfer page and was ready to transfer my ENTIRE savings to checking so I could do it. At the last second, I came to my senses.... Man, does being a grown-up SUCK!

Instead, I will be paying that 289.00 on one of my credit cards. Have I mentioned "sucks" yet? Big plans are in the works, though, and one of those big plans is getting as much paid off on my credit card debt as I can this year. NOT a resolution, I am not making resolutions. Just a plan. Plans are open to revision....

Another plan that is NOT a resolution: I started Weight Watchers this morning. Weight is one of the things that I have let get away from me this year... Good news is that I weigh ten pounds less than I thought I did for this mornings official "after-I-pee-and-before-I-shower naked weigh-in." But it is still an appallingly high number: 172.0. That is right, one hundred and seventy-two pounds. And I am not tall! Time to do something about that. Good thing that I love Weight Watchers recipes so.... The Pepsi is going to be the hard habit to kick. Sigh.

Here is to a skinnier me in the new year, and with a better credit rating!

I think I am going to buy a skein of Socks That Rock Lightweight as a reward for not spending 289.00....

Good luck with achieving your plans ... I started work on the reducing debt plan about a year ago and I'm pleased to say that's worked big time. The weight ... not so much to lose but much harder to achieve. Who would believe debt is easier to shift than weight?

Adulthood does suck sometimes. =( I just paid all my bills today and realized that I couldn't even stop for coffee afterwards. Good luck with weight watchers! A few of my friends have had amazing results with that, and I've been considering doing it myself, actually!
