Hub's wrote a $100 check for a yearly contribution for Scouting that I did not know about. We always contribute but I would have put the check off until next month. Then hub's insurance premium did not come out of our checking as our credit union combined with another and they stopped pulling premiums in December. I did not catch it so I had to write a check to the insurance company for $394.00.

year we will know how much to have the IRS take out of his retirement. Should we pay quarterlies, or should we have a % deducted monthly? Great! Now my plans for (world domination) oops! I mean trying to pay off the sewer/house loan by June are in serious jeopardy. Plus my monthly goals are really up in the air. The emergency fund is lower than I like. I am trying hard not to go into panic mode. This is so stupid as I am just fine, really I am. I just am having a hard time convincing myself I can weather this.
Also yesterday I received not one phone call or one customer for the shop and I have so little work left and people are not picking up the work I have done. I am chewing my knuckles to the bone.
I did all the laundry yesterday. I really deep cleaned the shop. I helped mom clean up her room and get a package ready to mail. I cooked a nice roast chicken dinner with mashed potatoes,corn and gravy. I completed all the blocks for my son-in-laws quilt top. I tried to stay busy, but I am a mess today.
Sooooooo.......... What can I do to make myself feel better?
Eat way too much chocolate?
Go shopping with money I don't have?
Go pay 2 bills that I do have the money for and at least feel like I am on the right track?
Take mom out to mail her package and get a diet coke at McDonalds?
Cry and bite my nails down to the quick? ( oops already did this one)
Clean and change the sheets in the spare room?
Do the ironing?
Go buy cat food as we are out?
Take a long walk?
Sew the few things that are left in the shop?
Sew the quilt top together?
This is a one day at a time thing, every day it is a new dilemma and every day it is work to overcome the new dilemma. Every da&* day.
Have a great and productive day staying positive while you are in the negative.
