Life, Love & Spending Reports

Greetings Friends!

My sincerest apologies for being a little MIA lately. Work has been especially busy and my evenings are also filled with great things, but unfortunately keep me away from my lovely apartment.

Anyone else eager for February?! I sure am. February 1st (aka: payday) cannot come too soon! For one thing, el dinero is running out, but I’m also eager to calculate a new budget after the raise.

Lately I’ve been feeling… complacent? Discontent? Impatient? Hm, I’m not sure what the right word is, I think I’m just ready for a change. I’m ready to be debt-free and have all my money go to savings. I’m ready for spring to arrive along with many fun, exciting plans. I’m also ready for something to happen with J. We’ve been long distance for 19 months now and I’m tired of it. Last week there were some exciting opportunities that fizzled out. :-/ Some days I just wish he would move up here, even if he was simply my stay-at-home-BF. But alas, I must be practical and patient.

In other news, I had a lovely weekend! It was very social but also allowed for some much-needed rest.

  • I’m feeling the same way about, well, life in general….needing a shakeup and a change. I need the answer to life!

    Keep your chin up :) you and J won’t be apart forever!

  • I don’t think I have the will power for a LD relationship. So you should be proud that you can make it work. =)

    For the first time in probably a year I’m not that anxious about the next month coming. Money-wise sure, but for some reason February being right around the corner is very frightening!

  • Girl I hear you about the money! I’m SO ready to be debt-free so I can put it all into savings. Wow I never thought I’d hear myself say that…

  • I’m feeling the same way. I want February to get here because of tax refunds and it’s bonus time for my husband and I. What’s helping me is being super busy at work and home that I don’t have time to think about February (well, the only time I think about it really is right before bed).

  • Definitely easier said than done, but be patient. Things will happen when they are meant to happen and when they happen, it will be wonderful. I’ve been LD with my boyfriend for nearly our entire relationship (3.5 years). Our first four months were in differen countries. And then the following two years were in two different states, 8 hours from each other. We’re both in NY, but he is at school an hour away. This is his last semester so I’m glad that he’ll be moving back home, which is 15 minutes from me.

    I know exactly how you feel about just being ready to have a change. You’ve put in the time, the sweat, the tears and are just ready to be done with it already. But to reiterate, patience is key. I’ll cross my fingers for some good change for you!
