Return to Normal

August 15th, 2015 at 10:55 pm

Whatever that is.

The person who deletes their blog entries and turns off notifications is gone. I was clearly having a crazy moment when I turned off my blog notifications and deleted that entry. So, if anyone has commented and I haven't acknowledged it, can you let me know? I'd hate to miss out because of a moment of stupidity.

The new normal seems to include a lot of talking, which is good.

I read an interesting thread about friendship on the parenting forum I read, but rarely interact with. One member commented that it's easier to find the love of your life than a true friend, especially as you get older.

I've been completely lax about updating what's the cost. It shouldn't take long to do when I finally get round to it.

I just checked BoS and my balance is now sitting at 236.13. Interest still hasn't been added though. If only I had actually paid this off rather than just transferring it. I'm now wondering if I can come up with some extra money over the next couple of pay periods to get rid of this card. It would delay catalogue payoff though. I've not had a chance to check numbers yet so it might be doable. It's in its hundreds now, it has to go.

    Let's hope that with the new normal, you don't lose some of the good parts of the old normal. I was reading something about healing and strengthening relationships yesterday (meaning that sometimes they don't need healing but they do need strengthening because they become weak, lacklustre and need attention) and they were saying that you still have to keep up the fun things of your relationship from the early days even when it seems like a chore. (I can apply things like this to my own relationship of just over 15 years!). Hope things get even better over time

    I hope so. We're a few years behind you so I see what you mean. I think I was editing this while you were commenting, but you might have caught it.

    BoS is so close to being paid off! If it were me, I think I'd throw anything I could at it to have it totally out of my life. (paying mins on everything else)

    I hope things get better for you too. I'm at the point in life where it seems like everyone I once was *really* good friends with are now just .... good acquaintances. And finding someone new to be a *really good* friend with is (feels like anyway) seemingly impossible. Especially when you have to balance the needs of a romantic relationship with the desire of having *other* friendships.

    AS read an article recently that said paying small balances first can help sustain motivation... but those catalog rates are so predatory, I just hate to think of them getting even more money while you focus on the CC... it's a hard one.

    Always cheering for you Sarah! I know I missed the post you deleted. I think it must be you are having some issues in your marriage. Talking helps even if the person doesn't get what we have to say or agree. Is counseling an option?

    @CCF: Yes, but we are working on it. It started off as an argument about a new online friend which led to him saying he feels second best.
