Can I have this Design to Inspire space please?
This year, I am done celebrating my age in its chronological order. It’s no lie when I tell you that I recently had to use a calculator because I couldn’t remember off the top of my head how old I was. Even worse, dates and events are getting jumbled together as well. Even my post about my dog’s Gotcha Day .
I have a fascination with stories, images and fairy-tales that I associate with Chronic Illness. The first being Alice in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll. When you have an illness that can’t seem to fit into a logical format for the doctor, you become Alice. Take this pill. Drink this. Eat. Don’t eat. All the while you are looking for the key to it all, but down a rabbit hole we go instead.
Thus, I usher in Unbirthday. (my sister started her Unbirthday celebration’s last year) And yes, my family and I will have a tea party with rose red cupcakes! I’ve decorated all of my calendars with every Alice In Wonderland themed stationery I can find.
However, my hero of the story is the Red Queen. There days when dealing with others & doctor’s makes me just wanna say “Off with their heads”. and well, she’s a bad ass red head too!
A Very Merry Happy Unbirthday to You!!
One more year to go on my la faillite, (google it) which means I better have some strong foundations built now to survive the onslaught of solvency. There are traps and pot holes waiting me out there! I get a “buy a car with us” mailer at least every two weeks and even a couple of credit card applications – SAY NO TO DEBT!
I took a day to restructure my Cash Flow according to the suggestions from Dave Ramsey I budgeted to zero and by July all my sink funds (car maintenance, etc) will be funded to date. I started out the year with five craft subscriptions and now I am down to two. Future purchases over $50 have a set budget and I’ve set two Sink Funds for car registration and road side assistance. (Home Girl don’t change tires, #sorrynotsorry).
Let me tell you what an emotional tidal wave of anxiety this created. Oy! You would have thought I was cutting off my fingers, one by one. I did walk away from the figures for about a week and realized, it ain’t as bad as I think. My bills are being paid. I am very blessed to be able to do that. Not so very long ago, I was stretching to the max and now I have a room to breathe. It’s like when you lose weight and put on a pair a pants that would cut off your circulation and now find you can breathe with comfort.
The Emergency fund is growing too, thanks to my many acorns.
My next hurdle it to pay off one last medical bill and prepare to pay taxes and student loans this time next year.
Do you carry around a memo book, a note book that list out the things you want to read about later? I do, I have a digital version and a collection of things that I want to read up on or just find interesting. Thus, I give you…Pocketbook Notes. Yay! Right?
Each Sunday I will bring you three to four posts that have caught my eye over the week…enjoy the reads my friends
