I am back to living better, after a long while away. While gone, I have been continuing to try to budget and get out of debt. All I’ve managed to do this past year is pay for kids college and not go really any further in debt. That’s good, but that’s not enough. This past week we consolidated $92,000 of credit card debt into one loan. And I made a very nerdy spreadsheet showing that we really can get out of consumer debt in less than two years, still while cash flowing kids college. The truth is we make way too much money to be this broke.
So I have a plan. But then there is me, who looked in the mirror yesterday and realized that one earring is hanging much lower than the other, not only because one ear is lower than the other but that the piercings are crooked. So after my very expensive haircut (which was in the budget) I dropped by a piercing place to price getting a do over on the lower ear. I could do it for under $70, studs included. And then I realized how impulsive this was. Suddenly today after 40-some years of crooked earrings I have to do this now? No. I’ll wait and see if I can fit it in to August’s budget and the whole spreadsheet plan.
Boring update. So what, another well-paid broke person shocked by the fact that she can’t have everything and get ahead? Yes, that’s me.
I think I’ll start blogging here again, but without any pretence of being smart or entertaining. I won’t spend as much time as before looking for beautiful photographs. Hence this little piece of art I made just for this, me with crooked earrings.
