I just got home this morning from a week-long mini vacation with my sister. It was amazing to get away for a little while, for a lot of reasons.
One of them is that I’m feeling re-energized about personal finance again. I was going through a period of the ho-hums with my money (“ugg, why do I have to calculate my spending again,” “it’s so annoying to think so hard about ever purchase”…that kind of stuff) but now I’m ready to get back on track. I’ve been spending way too much money recently, so I need to get recommitted to my budget and get my ass in gear about paying off my car.
I’ve thought about it a lot and I think I’m going to go back to posting monthly goals. This time, I’m not going to write them just to write them. I’m going to really think about what’s important, make a commitment to a few select priorities, and keep them in the forefront of my mind throughout the month. My goals for August will be up tomorrow (a little late, oops!)
But for now I’m going to relax. I had a long drive back this morning then I had to have a very painful skin surgery on my back…and to make matters worse I think I’m getting a sore throat 🙁
I’ve missed you guys!! Leave me a comment to let me know what’s going on in your world right now…
