Sometimes if you just stop and take a look at the monster you'll find it's not so bad after all.
It feels like I've been away from keeping track of spending for a month. The past few days I've been "planning" to get back on track but this overwhelming feeling of failure has kept me from getting up, dusting off, and workin the budget once again. Oh, how I love these little pit falls.
Here's the thing though, what's truly felt like a month of being off track has actually been a week. What?!?!?! It's only been a week? I was pleasantly surprised by this little find once I sat down to record today's spending, knew yesterday's, and realized I had mentally kept track of Friday and Saturday too.
That puts me 12 days out of the game for 2013; 12 days total for the past two and a half months that I don't have a spending record for. I can live with that... have to.
And now for sleep!
Ooh, today's lovely: Temperatures above freezing. The idea that spring is just around the corner is SPLENDID! Walking into work in a t-shirt (NOT warm enough for a t-shirt but it was a quick walk in) was wonderful! I like winter. I love snow. But spring never comes too soon. Flowers. Green vegetation. Warm sunshine on bare skin... there is a season for everything. It's flower time!
