Well, not really. What I'm excited about is that the bank and I both agree that I have $8.97 in the checking account. When my head was in the sand, I would sometimes be off by $30 or more ... which translated to twice that once I got hit with overdraft fees for not knowing how much I had available.
So even though the balance has not gone up, at least I'm paying attention. That's half the battle. And tomorrow is payday. That's the better half.
