My bike

Sunday, January 13, 2013

Today I got my bike fixed. Lots of adjusting and oiling but got it done for about 25$ at the local Sports Chalet. I had so much fun riding my bike with Ronan in his trailer behind me that I can't wait to do it again. It's a bit of a pain because I live upstairs but the almost euphoric feeling I felt while riding today made it all worth it. I have the feeling I'll be sore as all get out tomorrow but for today I feel pretty good.

I am going back to school on the 22nd and I am so stressed that I'm worried about coping with it. My books alone for my 4 classes is 560$ pre tax. I've got about 400 of it taken care of but that last 200ish is causing me untold amounts of stress. I don't know where I'm going to pull it from. I over extended myself in December because of my son's birthday. I wanted him to have everything he wanted. So now I pay the price for that over spending. Thankfully, I have plenty of supplies so at least that isn't an issue. Because of my uber stressing, I've been eating. A lot. I've been trying to make it healthier foods so that atl east I've got that going. I never feel full and I'm always cold. I've been trying some non sweetened teas to help with that but I always go back to the coffee.

Thanks for listening to me gripe, ladies.

    Thanks CL, I'm hoping he did. The only indicator I get is he's still playing with the toys hehe. He's 4 so being grateful is a bit beyond him still but we're working on it.

    Susan, I did check it out but the prices weren't any better than the school bookstore. I'm looking into renting the last book or seeing if I can find lat years edition.

    Thanks Ladies :)

    I am glad you got your bike fixed and are having a good time staying active. This is the key. I hope you are able to come up with the funds you need.
    I hope your son had nice Birthday and realizes your sacrifice to get him what he wanted.
