Just For Fun

Under the Weather…

Under the weather that’s me for this past weekend. If you expected some kind of big event going on in my life, well you were sadly mistaken. I came down with a terrible cold Friday morning, and I spent my Saturday recouping and trying to get better. In other words, I laid around napping in my pj’s, sipping on Vernors, and reading my book when I was awake. The good news is – all my napping paid off because I feel much better today. The sniffles, sneezing, and coughing aren’t quite gone yet, but at least I can keep my eyes open without instantly wanting to fall asleep!


I am still slightly under the weather, so there are no big plans in the works for today or tomorrow either. Recouping seems to be the best solution. However, since I was feeling better today I did manage to get up and make a budget for myself.

I know I know, that doesn’t exactly sound like fun, but I have always been interested in how I spend my money and where I can save so budgeting for me is all in good fun. I don’t have any of those fancy money management softwares available to me, so I just broke out the old spreadsheet and created my own version of a budget.

Its always been the planning ahead thing that I really need, I have no problem taking care of the here and now, but planning for what will come in the upcoming weeks is always were I falter. I took my spreadsheet and planned out the next couple of months budget and guess how I feel now?

SATISFIED.

That’s right, it’s always nice to know just what is left over after everything has been taken care of. It always makes me feel that I am truly an adult when I can manage my finances.
