Monday Mission Statement

Autumn strawberry blossoms.
Because even in decreased daylight and colder temperatures things keep growing. 
This week I will keep my head up, try my hardest and not let the pressure break me.

Even though I am looking at WAY more work then I could possibly do in even two weeks time, I will tackle it with my all and do what I can. After that I will walk away, let it go, and live my life!

I will not overeat because of stress.

I will not let my spending get crazy and out of control just because I'm tired and work feels overwhelming.

I will not let the crazy work load steal me away from my child (I won't really see my husband because he'll basically be sleeping whenever I'm home).

I will meal plan and stick to the meal plan so that we don't live off of crackers, or noodles, or fast food.

I will meet all our already planned obligations this week. (maybe I should just call in sick all week?)

I will not make sugar my best friend.

I will take care of me.

And my next paycheck will be much bigger (I keep having to tell myself this).


  1. You can do this - just take it one day at a time - we can get through ANYTHING for one day!!! Think of the extra money you will make that will help you achieve your goal of paying off debt, bringing you closer to being debt-free and able to have choices instead of obligations!!!

    Bring food, drinks, & snacks with you so you aren't tempted because of stress & exhaustion and use the crock pot if you have to - it can be your best friend!!! I have faith in you!!!

    1. Thank-you. The Monday workday is now behind me. "One day at a time."

      I really had my head in the game so I didn't get super overwhelmed like I normally would. Now I just need to keep up the momentum so that I'm not a bump on a log (or on the couch) all night at home. I should probably turn the computer off and make a list of what I need to do around here before the day is completely gone and I'm needing to go back to work tomorrow.

  2. Nice mission statement! I wish you every success this week!

    1. Thank-you very much. So far it's been a fifty fifty with my "mission." But I'll take that!

  3. Stumbled across your blog this afternoon; love it!! What a great system you have going, and I admire the frequency and diligence with which you document your story and lifestyle. Followed you!! I'd love you to come check out my blog and let me know your thoughts as well. Keep up the frugality! Way to go! :)

    1. Thank-you very much. I'll stop by your blog for sure. I always love meeting new bloggers!
