Last week was the first week I hadn’t posted since I decided to write 2 posts a week. I was on a roll!
I’m not 100% sure what led me to break my streak. There are a few possibilities though:
- Last week was a difficult week emotionally. I won’t go into too much depth here, but some family members were fighting and hearing their pain affected me.
- We’ve had some money “fails” lately, and it’s not always fun to write about them. The two fails were not knowing how much our income taxes would increase and overspending on food. Both resulted in a low checking account and a very low emergency account. It is good we had those emergency funds to use when we needed them though.
- Finances feel stagnant. Mr. POAI gets paid tomorrow and I get paid this Friday; hence, it’s been at least a few weeks since any funds came in, and I’ve not paid extra on the mortgage for a bit–so it doesn’t feel like progress.
- It’s that time of year. The weather is getting nice so I’ve been outside more. Plus, school is out in a few weeks, which means I’m pretty tired of the semester and unmotivated to do anything other than the minimum.
Mostly I’ve felt like these sleepy hounds:
Hopefully we’ll get more energy soon!
