Floating Around...

February 18th, 2015 at 05:08 pm

I feel like I am just floating. I have general thoughts and plans, and I work towards everything...but kind of half heartedly. So, I'm regrouping. I have taken 4 days off from work. With the weekend, that give me 6 days. 6 days to look and work on things. My only goal is to feel like I am more grounded instead of floating around. I need to look at things more positively and less harshly. And allow myself to feel good about what I'm doing.

Soooo....I'll be back in 6 days to let you all know how it went. I'm hoping for 6 productive, fulfilling, and somewhat relaxing days.

Not a whole lot is happening. The trip was nice. We spent about $300, including gas and our hotel. We put it all on my husband's Discover card. We will earn 5% back on all the fuel purchases and we will pay it from our business.

I am taking a few days off from work in the coming week. Going to use the time to work on my house, taxes, finances, and get ready for a garage sale in March.

Should be ending the week in the black. Everything is paid. Money is going towards debt. And I set aside a little bit for Valentine's Day. We got engaged on Valentine's Day, so its special to me. Smile

Damage to the checkbook

Well, I went through my checkbook after I returned the jeans. I am short $27.17. If I come up with that, I won't need to change anything else and I will still be able to pay towards my debt. I'm sure I can do that.

We have a trip planned this weekend. Just an overnight. The expenses will be covered by our business but I still want to spend as little as possible.

Let's hope I can stay on track.

Sharing to keep myself accountable

So....I had a financial flub this weekend caused by emotions. I was already on the near side of crazy on Friday and then my emotions took over and I skidded on over the line. As a woman, sometimes things are a little more depressing/frustrating/upsetting than others. I'm sure you can guess when that is. So this is how I ended on the crazy side.

It started with my dog chewing through 3 pairs of my underwear. Yes...I left them on the laundry room floor, but I think I should still be allowed to be upset about it. Then, I got holes in the crotch of my jeans...both pairs. So, overwhelmed, I went to try to get jeans. 2 stores and multiple tears later, I ended up with 2 pairs of jeans, some underwear,a shirt for an event, and $150 gone from my bank account. Frown The worst part is, as of today, one of the pairs of jeans don't fit. So, I shifted some money around and decided I will take the pair that doesn't fit back today. That will add some money back and I will have to get creative for the rest.

Please tell me someone else does crazy stuff like this!!
