Did you see that I made some goals this year for myself? Wellllll, I’ve done the whole one step forward, two steps back dealio -kinda.
On the finance front I’m really making some headway! I’ve setup my ING
account (and scored 50 big ones!), I’ve automated everything that I possibly can plus now I have a separate account for our groceries, my gas and my spending money. I don’t even look at my other account that pays all our bills (ok, I peek) or touch the pot so I can’t overspend out of it! I had this terrible habit of seeing all these dollars and being all ohhhh but I have so many so I can spend $3 here, $6 there….NO MORE!
Then I went on a cleaning escapade this past week. I organized and cleaned J’s room and closet. I cleaned up all the Christmas decorations (except the lights on the house – A’s job for sure) and I’ve gone through the toys to scale down after the toy explosion. Not bad for a couple weeks into the New Year, I must say.
Plus I’ve been writing more, I have an open house Saturday night with Diaper Parties, I’ve crochet 3 hats, and I’ve been spending more time with family members. Overall I’m heading in the right direction here…
BUT, my soda habit is really spiraling out of control. I have this thing for Coke and it started during my pregnancy. I had one craving and one craving only: Coca Cola Classic. It’s my downfall and I thought not buying it would help me and then the vending machines started to taunt me. BAD. We all have our dirty little habits, right? Or is that just me!?
I see it this way, if I keep making excuses for why I fail giving something up then I’m just not ready to give it up. It’s like smoking or drinking, right?
So, how are you doing on your goals for yourself this year?
