Adulting Update

It has been a little while since I made an adulting post that I promised many of. First off, I have been taking a mini break after writing such a detailed post about budgeting. Secondly, I have started working on my next adulating post on keeping and balancing a transaction/checkbook register, but have been having more technical difficulties with my word processing software. I am seriously having the worst luck with losing content while saving. Yes, while saving!!!! I hit the save icon and poof content gone and it backs out of the software. I am really not pleased with it!!!

I have been writing on my word processing software because here on WordPress the writing space was so small. I could not get the look I wanted because of not being able to see it all while typing. As I started writing this I realized that I now have a big writing space on WordPress. I know that I can save drafts here while I am working on them. I will have to start typing up my content directly on WordPress from now on.

It has been a busy January so far and it is gearing up to be a pretty busy February as well. Adulting has been happening for sure!

  • Homeschooling
  • Field Trip
  • Crazy Work Schedule to plan around
  • Checkbook Balancing
  • Budget Planning
  • Meal planning
  • Grocery Shopping
  • Cooking at home to save money
  • Keeping mine and my daughter’s dentist appointment (teeth cleaning)
  • Bill Paying
  • Vehicle Cleaning

These are just a few highlights.I know that my adult tasks are not the same as many other’s. I am a stay at home mom that takes care of all of the at home stuff. I do not work to make money from home. Home is my work! I manage all of the home tasks so that my husband only has to deal with outside work issues and can spend time with us on his time off. (Unless he wants to cook to give me a break, and in that case why would I not let him!?) This is the arrangement that works for us at this stage in our lives.

I am starting to ramble……so I will leave it at that for now. I will have an adulating post up about keeping and balancing a transaction/checkbook register soon. I am not going to say a specific date right now because it is a work in progress and detailed info like that has to be worded just right to make sense. It will be up soon though!

Things competing for space in my brain…(RANT)

I do want to write…. I have made a draft and deleted it… I have too many things in my mind competing for space. Between grading (not just saying complete or incomplete, actually giving a % grade), keeping up with this house, ending a school year, planning the next school year, trying to stay positive about a family health issue, going through legal documents for registrations that aren’t ours (ancient ones), way too many necessary big ticket purchases(because crap happens and things break), check book to balance, budget to plan, meal plan and shopping for 2 weeks, forgetting stuff, a sewing project to finish this week (and also start), taxes to pay, vehicle registration to acquire, cable box to return ASAP…….. AHHHHHHH! Brain overload!!!!

Ok, I think my rant is over….. so yep, there is a whole lot going on in this normally calm brain.  Did I mention that we forgot our housedog outside in the dark for about 6 hours….He’s ok at least it wasn’t in mid day with the sun beating down. We felt really bad.
