Difference a Day Makes

Sunday, November 25, 2012

Today I begin my work week, got through the holiday, thank God. I buried my Mom three years ago this month and it seems as I get older, the holidays just do not have that "umph" as they once did when I was a kid. It was rough for me the past couple of days. They say as time goes by it gets easier, but not in my case year three and counting. My Dad ended up being hospitalized on Thanksgiving with heart issues and I was just beside myself trying to keep myself getting on the road to go see about him or staying put. I was lethargic and moody this holiday weekend and it looks like I will have more downtime in December. I still have some work to do at my apartment to finalize my move, I just took this time off to rest and try to ease the anxiety of my mind.

I talked with family, kept in touch with friends over the weekend. Basically just kept a low profile, did some window shopping and dreaming how I would like to design my home. This was a big expense for myself in 2012, getting this new home. My original plan was to buy a new car but I was placed on a different path. Wrapping things up with the first part of my educational endeavors and now i am looking forward to the next step. Soon I will have about two years until next contract and I want to have things in place for me to make a sound decision in exiting GM. I am putting things in order following financial peace principles just like i was taught by Dave Ramsey-nothing is new, just need to buckle down and apply the principles. They work. A new work week, a different perspective on life, work, love, family. What a difference a day makes.

    Awesome! My Mom died earlier this month. My holidays feel surreal so far. Life does go on. We have to choose our path and continue. Blessings to you.
