I'm also stressing more than I should about the budget being really tight this month... probably all year and the fact that our van seems to have pooped out. We haven't taken it in anywhere due to lack of funds and we're crossing our fingers that it was just cold... hehe. I'm not so sure the brakes and power steering cut out just because it was 0 degrees outside. You know how sometimes things just weigh on your mind and drain you and make you feel weak and helpless? Well we're down a vehicle, down a baby sitter, locked in the house when the other adult is working, and short on cash. Fun stuff!
Balancing housework, spending time with Abe, sleeping (which I've been doing rather poorly since I'm stressing a bit), and work has just been pitiful thus far in February. I kind of think I need to take the advice of a good friend: make a list of everything I need accomplished and then just cross half of it off and let it go. Anyone want to throw a few hats in the fire with me?
The good news is that when I'm really tired, really stressed and short on cash I tend to throw abandoned to the wind and spend, spend, spend! Okay not good news; my spending is up this month and I'm not excited about it but I have been pretty disciplined. I don't feel like I've gone on anything even remotely resembling a spending spree. Just life I guess.
Blogging really is therapeutic. I think I'm going to light a lovely candle, turn on some pretty music, and make dinner now (while I spend time with my son who's popping bubbles in the kitchen). OH, he peed standing up today!!! That's something neat I think. Oh, my little man.
Now playing pretty music!
