Random Stuff

It was a typical Monday at work today. The minute I walked in I had several "issues" brought to my attention. I really don't like Monday mornings. Here are some other random things that have gone on in the last few days:

~I got asked out on a date. A very sweet guy from work asked me out last week. When he first asked me I thought he was just wanting to hang out some time after work. The more he talked the more I realized that it wasn't just as friends. The next day I went to his office to talk to him. It was very obvious that he did not get the memo that I was gay. But he took it very well and said that he would still love to take me to dinner one night. He said he just really likes being around me and wants to sit down sometime and just talk with me. I was so relieved that he took it well and is still willing to be my friend. He really is a sweet guy and I would have been sad if things had become uncomfortable between us.

~I really want to move North. The more I think about it the more I really want to get out of Kansas City. I am going to sit down in the next few weeks and come up with a 3 year plan. I think if I write out a plan it will be harder for me to ignore.

~I need to remember that Sunday afternoon naps really mess up my sleep. Last night I laid awake until 1:15am trying to fall asleep. Usually if I put Ben under the covers and just pet him I will be out in a few seconds, but not last night. I woke up around 2:30am and couldn't tell if I had been asleep or not, but then I remembered part of my dream and was relieved that I had fallen asleep. Sophie got me up at 6:30 to go outside. As I waited for her to finish her business I tried to come up an excuse to not go to work. I hate lying, so I decided I would feel guilty all day if I did call in, so I just got up and went to work.

~I always forget that when I get my period I get horrible headaches. So once a month I walk around with a bad headache and wonder why I have it. Then I realize what's going on. You would think I would learn.

~I have learned this week that by paying cash for everything, I really watch what I spend. I used to always just use my debit card, but it really didn't feel like I was spending money. Actually seeing the money pass through my hands makes a huge difference in what I buy.

~This is my 999 post.

I've learned that about money as well. My husband told me recently that it was 'tragic' that I couldn't manage my money with my debit card. Pissed me right off but I know what I know and tend to carry cash for just the reason you mentioned. I think a 3 year plan is a fabulous idea! Another thought I had was perhaps you could check job opps online somehow and get an idea of what's available? Maybe your 3 year plan could be sped up a bit.

3 year plan sounds like a good idea.

I have headaches too, I don't catch on too quickly why I'm getting them either.

I do the same thing with money now and it is harder at the grocery store but I actually only buy what i need, so I guess it's working.

A 3 year plan sounds like a great idea, but if you start putting feelers out now, and checking, you might be able to move it up, if you want. How far north are you thinking? I'm horrible about not tracking the money we spend with the debit card.

Woo hoo waiting on 1,000
I think cash might be the way for me to go too. Using a debit card is too easy for me. Good thing I don't do credit cards they would be even worse!
Do the three year plan, it will give you some focus and regiment and something to look forward to!

Can't wait for the 1000th post! How cool!

Sounds like the guy at work is very sweet. Maybe a great friend in the making.

Hope you are surviving Tuesday!
