There's no numbers in this post

January 11th, 2015 at 09:17 am

My last two posts have been short and sweet; and only about numbers. This one will be the opposite.

I'm still in the process of organising and decluttering. I'm getting there very slowly but it is a constant process. I've still got a ton of paperwork to shred but I'm feeling optimistic about that. One of the areas that desperately needed attention was SG's room, I started to deal with that yesterday. It's the one area that I've been avoiding because it was too overwhelming to deal with. Well, as of yesterday, it is slowly looking better. One thing was perfectly clear yesterday: we have a lot of stuff.

Speaking of stuff, it's been confirmed that MIL is actually having a clearout. We thought that anyway based on the kids' Christmas presents. She text me yesterday asking if I needed any of these items as she going to sell them at a baby and kids market: travel cot, high chair and two activity tables. Normally, I would have considered the activity table because I remember SG used it a few times when we were at MIL's. However, I am trying to get rid of stuff, not bring more in. J has a walker that has toys to keep him amused, plus a lot of other toys. I told her that we didn't need any of it.

Later on Facebook,I noticed that she had added pics of everything and was asking her friends for help on how to sort it all. I didn't get involved, despite thinking maybe she should join a group about getting organised.

DH and MIL still not talking. He is still paying off the PS4.

DH was out for his friend's 30th last night. When I say out, he was away for the night with his friends. He's the only parent there and he told me he was bored. I'll find out how the rest of the night went when he's home later.

It's my 30th next month. I've took my birthday off Facebook because I don't want MIL to use that as an excuse to get in touch. DH thinks she knows when my birthdaut ordering one then.y is though. I don't think her memory's that good. I've requested a cheesecake from DH from our favourite cheesecake place. I'm going there with my mum during the week so I'll see about ordering one.

I'm tempted to get a takeaway for my birthday but I keep thinking that the money would be better off elsewhere (credit card #2, emergency fund)

    Perhaps you can think of a yummy home-cooked alternative to takeaway? Or even better if there is something that you like that DH can cook for you? Whatever you do, it should be nice and a reward for sticking to your goals.

    It is nice to treat ourselves, but I often feel that I'm sabotaging myself when I have clear goals. I think either way is okay! Happy Birthday!!

    @ozgirl - i might do that

    Maybe if you can hold out and not have any takeaways before your birthday, it could be a combination bday gift and reward for saving money!

    Isn't it funny how your priorities change as you become a parent or become older? Sounds like DH had that experience.

    Cheesecake sounds like a special treat for your birthday.
