  Some friends and I were talking at work this morning about the financial issues we are having.. Some of us have children and spouses, houses, medical bills, car issues. All of it seems to be piling up. Most of us have borrowed from our parents, borrowed against 401K plans, and sold items just to pay things off. As were talking we were all in agreement that we didn’t feel we got paid enough and some of us are looking if not already have part time jobs which we hope or hoped would make a difference. They are not. Here we are at 10:13am talking about ways we can make more money other than finding higher paying jobs, selling ourselves into prostitution and selling out souls to Satan. I thought the recession was over?

I’ve decided that I want to take a day to sit and go over all my bills, debt and things I have to do and come up with a game plan and get as much of it done as I can before I quit the airport.
I’ve been slowly recovering from pneumonia. I have a bit to go before I’m up and running at 100%. I’ve managed to get back to the gym. I’ve decided to ease back into it by walking on the treadmill for 30-45mins 3-4 days a week. I still haven’t gotten my appetite back fully. I’ve been eating shit like a handful of chips, spinach dip, granola.. just simple handfuls of random stuff and salads as long as they aren’t too big. I also can’t drink while I’m on my meds, so I’ve given up on drinking for the time being. It’ll save me some money and some inches on the waistline.

Sleep also has been interesting. I usually get about 5 hours a night and lately I’ve been needing 9-10hrs and I still wake up tired. I get hot, then cold, hot, then cold. I also find myself waking up and freaking out about my bills, debt and finances which is typical when I’m feeling sick. Its part of the “overwhelming” feeling I get when I’m not feeling up to par, that and sobbing for no apparent reason. I haven’t done that yet.
Been thinking about Christmas too. Last year my family and friends all decided that we couldn’t afford to buy each other gifts. I wasn’t very happy about that, but my finances being what they were it was a blessing. This year I definitely want to make an effort to get everyone something for Christmas. I just have to figure out how to do it.

I really hate the holidays and am not looking forward to it. Ick!

I am in process of planning a few things between now and the New Year.

Nov 13th- The Little River band at the Medina with Randy

Dec- The Blenders with Ernesto

January- Winterpalooza at a friend’s cabin with a bunch of girlfriends.
