August Rush

August 31st, 2012 at 01:35 am

I'm SO TIRED. No energy. I haven't been keeping up with the blog like I want. I've been a little lax on the budget control as well. But my goal is to get back to the basics.

Everyday it seems like I'm rushing to work, then rushing somewhere after work, then rushing to get ready for bed, then rushing to start another morning just like the previous to rush everywhere all over again. Oy! Next month I will slooowww it down, at least a little. Cut down on errands. Simplify a few things. Take some time off work. Get the spending back to my normal money (this month I was a spending diva -- on top of car repairs, I bought 2 laptops, an airline ticket, new dresses, arts and crafts supplies -- oy!!)

A friend of ours at church passed away and made me think to be more mindful of gratitude and appreciating each other. (Slow down...) And of course I feel anxious that I still don't have my will in place. I have a will kit but haven't completed it. Procrastination is an ugly thing. Seems like I can do a lot of things, in spite of my lack of energy, but this I'm really resistant about. Think I need a simple will with counsel, though, since I'm not sure about the mortgage. Have to work on my energy and my procrastination.

I'm encouraged, as always, after reading other blogs. My automatic savings plan is still at work, but I don't want to sabatoge what I'm doing. So back on track and steady as she goes. Happy saving, everyone!!

    I so relate to all of this! I've been so busy lately. Remember feeling bored? I do, vaguely, but it was before I had kids! They definitely fill in what used to be the downtime between working, cooking, etc. Smile It is hard to simplify, but I want to at least slow down a bit during the colder months, take it easier on weekends.

    Get that will done, though! It is a bit morbid-feeling at first, but once you have it done, you'll feel much better about your family's security. You're not alone, though; we did ours last year and most of our friends' reaction was "Wow, I should really look into that."

    It definitely can lead to a feeling of mindfulness and appreciation when someone in the community passes on. It will not take too long to complete the will kit, don't worry, and it will offer some real insurance of peace of mind once it is completed. You are certainly not the first person to procrastinate that particular task!
