So I started a new volunteer position that takes about 20 hours a week. This means I am away from home more and even when I am at home my brain was still trying to understand what I need to learn for this new position.
This took over my life for the past 5 weeks and so EVERYTHING else has fallen by the wayside. I haven’t cut a coupon for 5 weeks, I haven’t had a menu planned, I went shopping whenever I needed something and I neglected to look at ads and shop smart! Yeah, basically I have lived as if I didn’t know any better!
After having to be so careful with my money when my hubby was out of work earlier this year I feel like I just did a BAD thing! I have decided instead of beating myself up about it (which I think all women are quite skilled at) I “put on my big girl panties” (a phrase I learned in Memphis earlier this year – just get over it and grow up, basically) and am starting over and am going to get back to work as the Household Manager that doesn’t just talk the talk, I am going to walk the walk!
Here’s to a better month…. and to saving money again!
