Thought I would try to post some pics of Rylan more often since this blog is supposed to be about him. 😛
My first video had some audio problems so here is the fixed version. Added a little bit to it as well so you get to enjoy more adorable Rylan time 😀
Today is Rylan’s first real Easter as last year he was only a month old on Easter so we didn’t do anything special. I don’t really feel like making another separate post so I’m going to include some other pics from before today. Enjoy! =)
**I just realized the audio in the video is messed up an you can’t hear Rylan’s adorable talking and giggling. I’m working on fixing that now. Sorrys.
Since I no longer am on
A month or so ago I was budgeting my money super well. I managed to spend around $200 a month on groceries and resisted I plucks spending. But since a few things have happened and I’ve been down and stressed my budget has gone out the window. I’ve been buying so many things I don’t even need and spending money I don’t have. So far this month I have spent over $300 on groceries. That’s insane! And now I’m sitting here beating myself up about it and feeling stupid.. On top of that I’ve purchased some books for Rylan and I, bought some patio decorations and furniture, and spent way too much on Wendy’s French fries and fresh lemonade (omg yum).. All these things make me feel good when I buy them, but now I’m left feeling absolutely horrible and full of regret.
I need to get back on the budgeting wagon and stop relying on buying things to make me feel better. I feel a need for support, someone to kick me when I think of buying something I don’t need, but I know of no-one. What do you do when you feel you lack support? I can’t just make a quick friend and ask them to help me keep to my budget like 2 days after meeting them. Pretty sure they would think I was a little strange.
Who knows, maybe I’ll start blogging about my budgeting troubles and successes.
Anyways, thanks for reading! I would love to hear any ideas you have for getting back on the budgeting wagon or finding support. Xx
This was my 50 word story inspired by The Daily Post Challenge. This challenge was harder than I thought but it was probably good to limit my sad story to just 50 words. I know I’m not much of a writer, but I hope it’s not too bad. :] Thanks for reading! Xx
“Live a good life. If there are gods and they are just, then they will not care how devout you have been, but will welcome you based on the virtues you have lived by. If there are gods, but unjust, then you should not want to worship them. If there are no gods, then you will be gone, but will have lived a noble life that will live on in the memories of your loved ones.” ~ Marcus Aurelius
I know that most people who are reading this won’t bother to watch this video. It seems people prefer to avoid listening to others challenge their beliefs. “Ignorance is bliss.” Right? Maybe.. But… “knowledge is power.” This speech has been translated into 30 different languages and is also the most watched speech in Israeli history.. Yeah, it’s kind of a big deal.
Anyways, sorry for rambling. Here’s the video.
