I would NOT recommend temper tantrums (inwardly or otherwise) as a way to deal with frustration. The results were scary. I used the overdraft alot, something I was terribly ashamed of. I used credit cards a bit, something I thought I never do again. And I started to feel that, trapped in a deep dark pit feeling again, something I've not felt for a long time.
With my financial forecast ending in June it seemed as though we were no longer making enough money to pay the bills. Yesterday I worked the budget out through October. I was very pleasantly surprised to find that temper tantrum behind me and discipline back in place n five months I should be able to pay off a credit card and replenish the emergency fund.
Lesson learned: pit stops are okay but dropping out of the game sure causes alot of avoidable headaches.
Today's lovely: Fresh baked from scratch apple pie.
