Bad thing: Angry unreasonable husband (not making life fun at the moment).
Good thing: I'm totally sticking to the budget this week (if not only to show him that I'm serious about this whole ordeal)
My recent fury and frustration due to the husband's unreasonable stubbornness towards financial responsibility (or irresponsibility) has sparked a new fire in me to stick to the budget. This week I've done really well. I'm cutting it pretty close but it looks like this is the week I'm finally back on board. I've only one day left. I've more money left than many other weeks that I managed to stick to it... I CAN DO THIS!!!
Horray! Yipee! If nothing else the confrontation has got me back in the game : )
Something interesting that I've noticed: Even though I don't enjoy penny pinching and denying myself little delights like sugary coffees and peanut butter m&m's I'm a tad bit happier when I'm sticking to my budget. I've even got a little extra spring in my step. It's hard work but when I'm not living a financially responsible lifestyle a little dark cloud hovers overhead. Life is much brighter when the ugly little cloud isn't there.
