First week of work



It was fantastic! No students yet, so I won't have a feel for what I'll be doing every day for awhile yet. But everyone is so friendly, helpful, and most importantly professional. It is such a breath of fresh air. Working is downright enjoyable when you are dealing with mature, intelligent and emotionally healthy people.


I am very thankful for the 2 months unemployed and unpaid. We did not suffer; I don't want to give the impression otherwise. But we had to totally rely on each other. I had to 100% rely on dh for financial support and he had to trust me not to take advantage of that. Yes it was only a few months but we didn't know that at the time. It was a good experience for me emotionally and strengthened my faith and my marriage. Plus there's another benefit! I haven't gotten paid yet, but it's funny how having just a short few months of no pay changes how I view my upcoming paycheck. It feels like so much money! We feel rich! I think I became way too disconnected from it and now I feel like I won't take it for granted as much.


I have been totally winging it for food. Not meal planning, and running to the store every few days. I'm afraid to update groceries in YNAB. I need to get back on track. There is no reason I can't other than my mind has just been so all over the place that I find it hard to sit down and concentrate. But now that I'm in a new routine, it's time. I'm going to work on that this weekend. Dh will be out of town most of next week, so I need to be prepared to feed the kids.


Also doing terrible at running.


So it's the weekend, so my goal is to run, update the budget, and make a meal plan. No more slacking!
