Out of the Blue

I haven’t posted in ions. My life has taken a different path once again. A good positive path.

I went in halves on a house with my ex-husband. The house is for my boys and I. I guess I can say it is definitely my dream home with a lot of work ahead of me but so worth it.

From time to time I am going post before and after pics of the reno.


The picture with the fake red brick was the kitchen before it was totally gutted. The cabinet doors are what my son and I stained to a darker color. No more drop ceiling yay! All these are basically of the kitchen. More to come!


Self Sabotage, No Money but Wants Mo Money..it can be done

I feel like my wheels are always spinning.  I seem to never get out of this vicious cycle of feeling poor. I am always asking myself, where in the world does my money go? Out the window that’s where. I spend it foolishly on nonsense and that’s about to end! 

So I found this free budget app called Daily Budget.  (No this isn’t an advertisement for them). It has a little piggy bank  as its icon and I found it very simple to use.


First though I have a planner that I buy from Walmart every year to keep my appointments, subbing jobs, and ahh yes of course my bills in.  The planner cost $8 (if that)and without it I’d be lost.  It doesn’t have any bells or whistles. It’s just easy to follow because it has a month at a view glance which is great because you can see everything coming up right in front of you.

I love the idea of putting stickers in here or using bright colored markers but in reality I don’t have the time right now. That’s all a part of my bigger picture and my time management adventure that I’ll be tackling soon.

Sorry to cut this post short so for now I’m going to leave you with this but at the end of the week I’ll update you on my budgeting progress!!

Two Steps Back

In our mind we think that when things go wrong, we have no luck or we are just doomed. This isn’t the case. In order for things to come together they must fall apart. And, in the current situtaion or circumstance that you are going through, that just might very well be a good thing.

If you are in a relationship that you think is irreconciable but you still love that person the best thing to do to make it better is to sometimes walk away for a while.

There are so many unknowns in life. Everyday, every second, every moment of your life is an unknown. My philosophy is to just roll with it. Don’t stress. Don’t fret. Don’t worry. It is a waste of precious time. There is only so much you can do to change the inevitiable. That is why the word inevitable is so important. You truly do not have control over what is destin to come. So….just let it happen. Learn from your mistakes that created that inevitable and critique for the future.

I’ve change the tempo of my blog so many times but I guess I’ve come to the conclusion that it’s just a compilation of my life. The good, the bad, and the inevitable lol.

My header pic is of my new apartment. It’s a shot of my sun/bedroom and my cat Moo Moo. I love my simple life and over the course of oh I’d say the past ten years is when I really started to think about what it’s all about.

Stop. Think about what’s important and enjoy it.

Until next post…. have a great day and be kind. blessings
