Been a Long Time, My Friends!

May 18th, 2011 at 05:58 pm

Hello everyone, I am so sorry I've been MIA. A lot has happened in the last few months. Some good, some bad. Most recently:

My health has gotten better (YAY)
My finances have gotten worse (BOO)
I am now seeing someone (YAY)
Work is getting stressful because of pettiness (BOO)
I bought a roku box - so now I can stream netflix - which was really important when I was practically stuck in bed every day. (yay)
Netflix has a monthly fee (boo)
I just had a birthday (the big 32) and a party (YAY)
I am overall happy (YAY)

I plan on taking stock of my finances - but I know that my debt has increased instead of decreasing. Partially due to medical expenses, partly due to not dealing with things while sick and partly due to laziness. So I am getting back on track!

I hope everyone is doing well - I see some new names around here & am glad to be back on board with frugality and to be working to payoff debt. I am mad at myself for letting it increase, but I will not dwell on it. I just plan to move forward.

I also have a HUGE list of to-dos. So I am going to be reinstating my 5 Things rule. I will knock 5 things off my list a day, no matter how big or small Smile

Today's 5 Things:
1. Post on Saving Advice (done)
2. Pay bills (done)
3. Pick up stuff from library (done)
4. Make dinner at home (done)
5. Meet with HOA secretary & sign some checks (DONE)

    Omgosh I feel like we are living parallel lives! I was diagnosed with fibromyalgia in October, but then I saw a rheumatologist about 6 weeks ago who thinks it is an autoimmune disease or connective tissue disease, so I am on a bunch of new meds too! AND I had an MRI two weeks ago of my neck. I had 10 vials of blood drawn yesterday for every test under the sun I swear. I see her on Friday. She told me that there are so many diseases that cannot be identified on tests, but that I definitely was not going back to work. So at this point I am feeling a lot better, but don't really feel like I could handle work, but at 53, I have put in 34 years already! Good luck to both of us in finding answers!

    Glad you're back! I'm a Netflix junkie too. It's not v. expensive for all the variety, and has been well worth it for us.

    Welcome back! So great to hear about the good things that have happened. Health is the #1 thing that everything else flows from, for me, so it's a great starting point.
