So… as mentioned in previous entries I groused enlessly about hao mizzzzerable life is on occasion and how I am stuck in big rut! Well, I also mentioned I guess I was the only person that could change that. So I decided to go back to school for a while and see where that takes me.
I still have a variety of other goals which are written down at home on a chalk board where I can see them everyday. It seems to be a help psychologically speaking, and with the days I am taking off from work this week hopefully I can make a dent. My finances are a little tight only because I realized how much I have been overspending, and wasting in general.
I decided to cancel my www.wineofthemonthclub.com membership because it was about 30$ a month I did not NEED to be spending especially since I do not drink THAT MUCH wine. I get two bottles a month from them… got two bottles a month. I cancelled a membership to another website for business schtuff.
This week I did a worksheet of the last 6 months of spending and … shit! In February I spent 950.00 on dining out. This was the month of Adolfo’s birthday. I know that cost me about 400. Ugh… BUT… on the average we have spent at least 1K$ on food with groceries or dining out. What the hell? Anyone wnat to wonder why I am so damn fat?!?!?!?!?!?!?????!!!!?!?!?!?!
So, now it is time to start triming costs where possible. Trimming calories. Trimming impulse purchases. It’s a time for a little conservation and achieving goals. I asked Adolfo to work on getting his DL by 9/15…. so far not a thing. Maybe he is waiting for me to trim my waist line first.
