No Spend August day 17

The months where we are the most successful in putting a lot of money toward debts, and spending little money, always seem the most stressful while we’re dealing with them.

We always pay toward debts as soon after the paycheck as we can, otherwise it might be spent elsewhere.  However, in putting more than the average payment to a loan, our bank account appears much smaller than it typically would be.  Well that’s how I’m feeling so far this month.  I know we haven’t spent more money than usual, but I look at it and am like, “whoa, no way.”  I also know that we’ve been great and we’re on track, but I’ll fully realize just how successful this month was next month when I do our budget breakdown.

The month is half way through which means we’re half-way there!  If that isn’t the most obvious sentence ever…

So what have I been up to?

I’ve been working on Elizabeth’s quilt.  Yeah, over 13 months late, it’s long overdue.  I’ve been purging a little bit here and there.  I’ve been napping. Seriously, almost 1 nap a day lately.  I might as well while I can.  Elizabeth and I visited with her grandparents for a day.

Today’s tasks to accomplish include: Clear off our daybed because it’s being sold, clean up from yesterday (I was a tad lazy in my everyday-cleanup tasks), and possibly, hopefully, maybe, finish E’s quilt.

Wish me luck!!
