Happy Saturday, Guys! ๐ŸŒž๐Ÿฆ‹

Good morning, everyone! ๐ŸŒž Iโ€™m writing this from the โœจ nice and clean โœจ back porch. ๐Ÿ˜Š I’m so glad I pushed through and did that! Now Iโ€™m waiting for Christopher to wake up so we can go garage saling today. Our good friend is too busy with work to join us, which has us both a little bummed, but we will have a good time all the same.

Itโ€™s a little cooler today. In an hour or two it will be hot as ever, but right now Iโ€™m outside and wearing a jacket, which really feels kind of amazing. October is halfway overโ€ฆ cooler weather is just around the corner for us, and really, it canโ€™t come soon enough. I love being out here with the cats.

Plus, I can’t wait to take walks at other times of the day other than sunrise and sunset, you know, when the sun is actually out, without melting.

That aside, since I started tracking my periods again, now I know that Iโ€™m PMSing, which does explain my crappy mood the last day or so. Itโ€™s really helpful to realize that itโ€™s going on, so I can see some things more objectively.

Art wise, Iโ€™m feeling very encouraged. I was sure there was no way that this month I could put the full $1,000 towards my momโ€™s fund, AND the $500 towards our house debt, becauseโ€ฆ well, this month I paid off my Amazon card, and it was at over $500 (in the last few months I had a bunch of not super smart purchases… games, clothes, and a lot in Christmas presents for this year –most of it before things went to heck for us).

BUT. I gave Christopher the $500 for the monthly debt, I paid off the $500+ of the Amazon card, AND I have $395 set aside for my mom’s move-in fund. If I make it to $500, I won’t feel like I failed (because the Amazon card is not a regular expense). But if I make it to $1,000… the full monthly amount… I’ll feel very triumphant indeed.

Anyway, Christopher’s awake so it’s time to finish getting ready. I’ll post again later today!
