Butterflies and Banana Bread

Where has time gone??? I planned to post everyday no matter and it's been 10 days since my last post. oops.

You guys are WAY too easy on me by the way. I should NOT be going over budget. It's a super tight one BUT if I try I know I can stick to it. The only reason I'm going over is because I'm being lazy, having a pity party, and not focusing on the bigger picture: getting out of this debt mess.

That being said it's August now (yay for August) and I'm still behaving pretty badly. I think better than July but none the less NOT on budget. Additionally I got in a huge fight with the husband yesterday, I've had a migraine all day, and my hours at work have been getting cut short for the past few weeks... kind of makes it hard to pay the bills. That's my sob story but the only reason I said all that was to say that it's a BEAUTIFUL day today. It's been raining quite a bit lately and all the vegetation out of doors is green and flourishing. A cold front came in last night so the extreme heat just dipped a bit. There's a nice cool breeze in the air. The sky has been a brilliant blue all day. The days are beginning to shorten so the sun is making it's way a little southernly causing the shadows from the trees to be more noticeable to me.  The clouds speckling the blue sky have been magnificent all day. Frankly I'm quite surprised that I didn't ram into someone or drive off the highway this afternoon while I was gazing upwards. And this morning (since the days are shortening) I drove to work during the sun rise. The green fields backropped with trees and the amazing sky reminded me sooo much of the Ireland country side in November. Oooh, also I saw tons of butterflies today. It must be butterfly season or something.

To sumerize: I should be having an awful day but life is so unbelievably beautiful right now that nothing is really bothering me. I think I'm going to make some banana bread now and tomorrow I'll come to terms with reality/ FOCUS on my spending!
