I had some panicky moments yesterday but after the bills got paid, I said a prayer of thanks, took stock of what I’ve got to live on and what I really need to buy. My austerity plan is in motion and I have faith that it’ll all be ok. I’m looking at cutting back in the cable department again. I can depend on the kindness of others who have it for a change. I can figure out how to get my fix elsewhere. I’ve got a payment that goes to my workout place…gah. It’s time to get back there. That won’t end till the spring so I need to just giddy up.
It seems like today, though, that I have just let it all weigh down on me. I wanted to get up and ride, but finally had a night of uninterrupted sleep and just stayed in bed resting. I need to borrow the mower and weedeater and do some yardwork. Theres stuff that needs be done and I’ve got most of the day free to do it.
Yet I just sit here. Chatting on FB about everyone’s first day of school, catching up on emails, drinking coffee. It’s like my body knows that the time of lazy is tick tocking away and next week I’ll be slammed crazy again.
But I’m happy with my austerity plan. It’s almost a relief to know that while things are scary in the bank, every day spending nothing is another day better.
