Pieces of Me

Day 9

December 9, 2016

I missed yesterday’s post, for shame. It was a long day and I’ve been feeling pretty drained. I didn’t even bother to be on the computer last night. I could back post something, but I’m trying to be completely and utterly honest (hahaha). Next week is going to be a bit of a long week. I’m not even quite sure what to expect from it. Today kind of got away from me too, but only because I had to go in and do a few more things for work to make next week not so painful.

I think the most important thing I need to try and accomplish today is to get my christmas presents done. Wrap those puppies and get them shipped as soon as I feasibly can. Russ is essentially finished up with school today and has a rather light work load. My sister is here in two more weeks too. So, quite a bit to look forward too.

I think the highlight of my day today was talking with a financial adviser. (Wellsfargo is giving away a stuffed version of Mike the Horse and I’ve been meaning to talk to them, so why not?) With the selling of my townhome, I’m looking to move myself financially forward and I want to make sure I make the best choices for me that will be beneficial in the long run. I think I caught the banker off guard because I’m not an idiot when it comes to money and I’ve taken some big strides already to free myself from debt. I still have some more things to get passed and I think my main goal over the next two years or so is to build that emergency pot of money. I also wanted to raise questions about investing options and such since I’m going to have a little to play with.

If there is anything that I’m happy about is to be able to do with I want with the money. But part of me wonders if it’ll start to burn a hole in my pocket and despite reminding myself that it wasn’t me with the spending problem, it was the ex-husband (he tried to build Rome in a day), I still question and second guess myself. I hope one day I never have to second guess myself on my decisions.
