Being Me…

and discovering that that is quite the roller coaster ride. Wanna come along?


What can I do to improve my life right now?

I have been worrying a lot about our situation (go figure – both of us without jobs and we have two small children). Well, that really doesn’t help anything. The question right now is, “What can I do to improve our situation/my life?”

There are things I can do on the financial front.

  • I can get haircuts a bit less frequently.
  • I can make recipes that stretch food a bit more – things that are filling but take less meat for example.
  • I can look at less expensive fruits and vegetables.
  • I can make sure that the loads of laundry are full.
  • I can look into insurance since we’re going to need to change soon.

There are things on a stress-relief level:

  • I can write down my worries at night before bed and pick it up in the morning.
  • I can take 15 minutes a day to have peace and quiet or listen to music.
  • I can take the time to soak in nice bath once  a week.
  • I can get out of the house once a week, even if I don’t have errands that need running.
