Looking Back to November 5, 2013
OK I have a need for emergency savings in a large amount rather quickly. I estimate I need up to $200 a month for the next six to seven months cut from my budget in order to get what I need accomplished. That's a tall order for my budget at the moment. The vitamin D at the moment, only $5 per month. Figuring out when to get her in for a check of it, almost impossible. I believe they are out of school the 12th so I will call to see if I can get her in then, or on the same day as her next dentist visit. That's the week of thanksgiving.
I am going to check and hunt down her supplements in gummy form especially the fish oil. I am reworking my budget and looking to redesign my blogs. I think pages on a single blog instead of multiple blogs will be better. I just have no idea if I will have to copy and paste every post to move it to Odds and Ends or if I can import them all to it. That is going to be the difficult part.
The cable has been off for at least a year. When I cut it off ignorant people asked why, as if I could eat the shows that came on. The cutest part? This person makes less than I do, lives with their mother and pays no bills. They simply spend money partying, borrow money to party and cater to their teenage daughter. I find it rather amusing, they were considered mature at 14 for doing every thing but what they should do.
Strangely I take pleasure in knowing that I am nothing like them.
Well, it's Sunday, I need to read and spend some time with my kid while she is being a little angel.
Thinking About it Now
It is strange to me how I no longer know what it is that I need to make up deficiencies in the budget or how much I need to save for emergencies now. I know what I need to cover the basics but those aren't all of my bills. The basics are rent, lights, phone, internet (I work online) and food. They may be a couple small bills I left out but those only come to $20 together.
The light bill is in my control some days. There are a few lazy habits that I need to work on changing but for the most part I am doing pretty well controlling what I do. The air conditioner is probably my biggest cause of increased light bills because I don't want it to be as hot inside as it is outside.
I have a lot to do and I'm still confused as to how to go about it, but I find it odd that my life is truly going in circles.
