I’m at the first hurdle of the year, financially speaking. On Friday, I will get the first check of the year. I have a written plan on where the money is supposed to go. Now all I have to do is follow through.
So far, I’ve paid off two of my outstanding one time bills. I have gotten my student loans consolidated as planned. I lowered my car insurance simply by moving. Things are going pretty well so far, but as I’ve said, I’m still clearing the first hurdle.
Relationship-wise, things are pretty even, comparatively speaking. We still haven’t really had our “State of Our Union Address” as I like to call it. It’s on the calendar, though (more on this later, perhaps in a protected post). I’ve been refocusing on me and what I want out of life lately. I realize other people do that without guilt that they are not giving their all to a relationship. While I’m an unmarried woman, I need to embrace all of myself and do what I want to do, at least some of the time. There’s nothing wrong with giving myself permission to do something that doesn’t have anything to do with being in a relationship.
I keep thinking today is Thursday. Ah, well. After all, it almost is.
