This morning was simple. I hit the gym, grocery shopped for the week, visited my parents, caught up on laundry and bad TV, then paid most of my bills for the upcoming month. I was rocking this Sunday like a champ. Then it occurred to me that I have a blog that people actually do read (a truly beautiful thing) which I have been neglecting.
My pride of my accomplishments for the day were suddenly replaced by guilt. So now I am drinking wine, since alcohol postpones guilt until at least the morning.
So why have I been so absent?
The answer is simple: laziness, excuses and anxiety over anything related with money and since the primary focus of this blog is chronicling my struggle with getting out of debt, I was avoiding this blog like the plague.
But I am back.
This year has already presented itself with triumphs and challenges when it comes to my finances.
The triumphs have been eating at home more, getting healthier, and I am FINALLY out of student loan debt!
The challenges are having any semblance of a social life, my husband, and a little bit of keeping up with the Joneses. Oh, and we went to Maui in February, which we are still paying for (but boy was it fun).
I wish there was a day that goes by where I didn’t have my mind on my money and my money on mind (that is actually pretty catchy, I should write a rap song that incorporates that…). But since the entry fee for entering the magical land of “ADULTHOOD” is a steep one, I can’t imagine that happening until dementia kicks in.
I just want to say thank you to all of you who read my blog on a regular basis. I appreciate you and I am back! I promise!
