I’ve still been dealing with dragging and depression. A couple of days ago, I just wanted to hide away for a few days. I’ve had a terribly difficult time waking up the past couple of weeks. One of my medicines is pretty bad about causing that sometimes.
The kids get out of school this week. I need to sit down and plan out our summer. It always goes more smoothly when there is a plan. However, this year we will start with only a rough framework of dates when the kids are occupied.
My oldest is going to Washington DC with my mom to visit family in July. My middle son is going to space camp in June. And my youngest will take swim lessons at the end of May.
I’ve decided I want to get really serious about knocking out our debt. I don’t know that I can go to some lengths people go to save money, but we can certainly be smarter about our grocery shopping and we can keep the thermostat turned up this summer a couple of degrees higher than we traditionally have done.
I don’t want to just pay off the credit cards, though. I also want to knock out our car loan and our mortgage. I would love to be completely debt free in ten years. That is my goal, though it will be a challenge since by then we will have two children in college.
I’ve been timid about writing here, which is silly since it is an anonymous blog. My fear is irrational. I’ve never written anonymously before, though, so I still think through the other lens of my writings.
