My routine

January 12th, 2009 at 02:23 pm

...is starting to return. The funeral is over. My dad is returning to Arizona and the holidays and New Years Party are a distant memory.

This past month was hectic and overwhelming!

I took a personal day the end of this week so I will have a 4 day weekend and we are still thinking about driving to Pittsburgh to the IKEA store. The thing is, I really don't have the cash to buy much of anything so I probably shouldn't even go...the temptation will be overwhelming.

Even tonight I am tempted to get pizza. The house is relatively clean, the dishes are washed and the last thing I want to do is cook or make any sort of mess. I might have to break down and go to Pizza Hut. Sometimes there are needs of the soul and tonight takeout pizza is my need.

I paid the mortgage today and balanced the checkbook. I spent about 200.00 more than I had budgeted for for this month because of all the running around but at least it was cash spent and not credit. Still, I am looking forward to February and March when I will see my debt take a huge hit in the form of a paid off car and paid off braces!!


Well, I know I shouldn't financially but I think we're going to have not homemade pizza tonight.

    Enjoy your pizza. You really are doing great avoiding the credit cards...something to be very proud of!

    Don't give yourself too hard of a time over going out for pizza. Sometimes you just NEED to take a break, and I always find when I put off the temptations, they rear their ugly head double later on. I end up feeling so deprived that I go overboard. Enjoy! Relax!

    Funny you were thinking about pizza tonight. When I got home tonight I stared into my fridge and my freezer, and even though I had a meal plan, all I wanted was pizza. I ended up eating my chili instead.

    At times all of our lives get hectic and overwhelming. Always take care of yourself and your family first. Finances are always a distant second.

    But with that said, do try to keep your budget in mind and your goals too. Your doing a great job and I wish I could give you better words.
