I spent a good chunk of time last night working on my budget for 2011. My biggest focus was saving money for a new car. Mine (affectionately known as Regina) is a 2001 with over 126,00 miles, so she’s getting up there. I definitely think (hope) I can get a couple more years out of her, but I also need to be preparing for the day when I need to buy something different. I’ve still got some tweaking to do, but I’m getting there.
While I budgeted my life away, I ate some leftover pizza. Definite sign I’m starting to feel better if pizza sounds yummy.
For your viewing enjoyment, the Glee rendition of Safety Dance, which I’ve been listening to on repeat. I’ve had this in my head since yesterday morning. Love Artie. The world needs more Arties.
Speaking of Glee, loved the Christmas episode last night. I got quite teary-eyed at the end with Artie and the whole “walking” scene. And, by teary-eyed, I mean there were lots of actual tears.
While I realized I am feeling better given the pizza for dinner, sign in the wrong direction: I was up almost all night with a horrible, sounds like I’ve smoked 40 years, nasty cough.
I’m exhausted this morning. Bring on the morning coffee run.
Your daily reminder from my coffee cup: be happy.
Okay, maybe that’s more my reminder because I’m slightly cranky today between the lack of sleep and the ongoing not feeling well.
Do you have a budget? Any tips for actually sticking to it? Making the budget is not so hard…following it? That I struggle with.
