Everyone LOVES to come to my house at Christmas- yes, I am one of those crazy people who every year add another lawn decoration to the collection- I have a million lights up and around...and I decorate my inside like it is a Christmas wonderland- every single room gets done with decorations and three of the four rooms get a tree and the kitchen too-people are like kids in candy shops when they come over to look at all the decorations I do-and I don't even have kids!!!Want some badly- DH too. Maybe Santa and Jesus will bless us this year.
Oh my Lord, do I know what you're going through. I have anxiety attacks about my balances. Collectively I've got about $7,000 in CC debt. I wish I had a money tree...

I was my own worst enemy back then!
I freak out now if my balance gets over $100 just simply because I'm afraid $100 will quickly turn into $1000 again - which I would not be able to PIF in one month. I know the sleigh center isn't where I need to be, but should we start another thread for those like me who are "afraid to use my cc's"! Ha!So far I've done well but I'm afraid what this holiday season may bring!
