Dear Expenses

Dear expenses,

I am far from fond of you. Your existence is not one I wish to continue. You are a long time stress-er there appears to be no escape from even when I have you completely under control.
When others interfere I lose all control over you and find myself
panicking at the zero balance in my bank account. The things others would find helpful are not as they tend to project their own desires into every situation. I enjoy knowing that something paid in full without need for monthly payments. It ensures that I have one less thing to worry about forgetting in future.

I enjoy the safety of setting money aside for emergencies though this luxury is rare. I enjoy it when expenses are kept well below my monthly income, I consider it a victory. The challenge of lowering an already low expense is one I thrive on some days while others it has me pulling my hair out at the roots.

Most of all I enjoy that there is no longer anyone in my home to run you up for no reason at all. I got rid of the one who did not know it is an impossibility to spend more than you have. While I will never love you, I am less likely to hate you and more likely to accept you as a fact of life than before.

Tired of Paying Expenses

Until next time I will enjoy the fact that I have paid a couple of expenses off and they will not repeat themselves in the near future.

I can remember that I used to get excited about the holidays but that was a long time ago. I was a kid and family still enjoyed a home cooked meal made mostly from scratch. The thought of going out to eat or buying frozen dumplings never crossed anyone's mind. I miss those days more than anyone could ever imagine.

Now I prefer to spend the holidays alone with the daughter that I have with me. I'd love to spend it with both of them but that's not always possible. This year I'm taking my youngest to my mother's and hubby is going with his parents to their family. Someone is cooking, I have no idea who. All I know is that they're huggy people and I'm not.

Well, I'll be going now, I have nothing else to ramble about.

Working it out

I was attempting to figure out yet another crisis when I determined the entire thing was basically in my head. The idea of being able to work from home again was one I had all but given up on until I determined that it was and is the only way to ensure that I achieve everything I need to achieve in a given day. I found help to renter this world from a friend.

Achiements and Goals

The last year I managed to meet my biggest goal, one that was long overdue and obsessively planned. I moved home from Arkansas and left the stupidity surrounding me behind. Now I am focusing on the next set of goals, and finding that I no longer no where anything is in relation to the objective that I am searching to achieve. Things change in four years but not that much.
There are still animals in my orbit, or rather animals have returned to my orbit since they aren't ours. We get visits from the cat that lives downstairs, who promptly makes himself at home each and every time. Theresa worries about how well he is cared for while he is in our new home visiting.

There were a lot of goals set during the last year and looking back the largest of them was achieved; now it's time to move onto the next set of goals and reevaluation of the ones that weren't achieved to determine if they are worth continuing toward or if they require altering. Planning for them was obsessive, an…
