Debt Quote Tuesday

The plans of the diligent lead surely to plenty, but those of everyone who is hasty, surely to poverty.
Proverbs 21:5

I think my husband has band practice this evening. I'm not going to sit around and mope. Tired as I may be tonite I'm going to clean up a bit around here. A little laundry, a little sweeping, a bit of dust bunny hunting and I think I shall feel a considerable amount of the weight lifted. I may not have an abundance of money to throw at the debts and ease up some of the mental tension but I most certainly can tackle a few of the chores that I've been neglecting. You know when the list gets longer and longer and it starts to press down on you and you can hardly function any longer? There are a lot of things on the list that I can't do much about (the stuff I blogged about this morning) but I can chop some of the littler things off. It's amazing how a clean house can make you feel 40 pounds lighter.

Moping and fretting never made anything better. Hormones, hehe. I don't feel like I'm hormonal but I imagine you can't see it when you're in the middle of it. I'm just gonna have to keep up the fight and in the mean time take care of what I can take care of (whether I want to or not). Maybe I can get a few of my Thanksgiving thank-yous done tonite too.

I'd like to express my thanks today to all of you lovely people who've been commenting on this blog. I really appreciate your support and input. You've been encouraging and uplifting, all of you. Many Many MANY thanks!!! AND thanks for reading  : )


  1. Oh sweetheart! Having a clean and tidy home always makes things seem better to me too. What about a nice hot bath or shower after all your cleaning efforts? Have some girly time while your husband is out before the baby comes? x

  2. please make the most of this time before the baby arrives. I look back on the month I was off work before my eldest was born nearly 22 years ago as being the most relaxing time of my life...nothing was expected of me, no work to go to, just peace and tranquillity. Man, I miss it lol!!

    K xx

  3. Now when you really start cleaning a few months from now that is called nesting (also hormonal), my husband said I shredded newspapers behind the television like a hamster. He is such a liar. I am glad to see that you are feeling better.

  4. I know when it's my time of the month I get sooo angry for no reason! I can feel myself getting cross and it feels like there's a perfectly valid reason although I know really that there isn't! silly hormones!
