The Walking Resolution
This is still coming along.

Overall it has been an excellent month for us. We brought in a decent amount of side income, wiped out my reading goal and most importantly became consumer debt free!!

As for my mini monthly goal of making through August, I obviously completed that goal. That was a simple one, but there was a lot of commotion this month and I didn't want to add too much.

My September goal is to volunteer at least 10 times this month at the school library. There have been a lot of cut backs at the school and I know they could use all the help they can get.
