Since I am all sneezy and gross, I felt the need to let everyone I came in contact with yesterday (the dental receptionist, the girl who cleaned my teeth, the financial counselor lady...) that "I'm not sick, I just have allergies." Most of them were like, "Oh yeah, so do I." However they were not sneezy nor gross. Liars.
So anywho, the financial counselor (Virginia), and I looked over my income and expenses and she gave me some helpful tips on keeping track of all the little expenses throughout the month using the envelope method, and told me she's proud of me. A complete stranger is proud of me! She then told me that she has two older sons who aren't good with money. Maybe I can make up for their lack.
|I was instructed to put my name on one of the envelopes and|
use it only on things for myself. I think that means I can get a
haircut, you guys!
After the meeting, I immediately (from my car in the parking lot of the counseling place) called the Community Home Trust to let them know that I'd completed the financial counseling session and she was impressed at how quickly I've "taken the bull by the horns". I'm currently first on the wait list for this fella. While it's not one of the homes I've been pining after, it's an end unit, it's larger than the ones I've been looking at, it has a double sliding door in the back, and it's closer to work. The possible drawbacks are that it's not new (I'm not sure how old it is) and it seems like it will need serious landscape help. I also don't know what the neighborhood is like.
|Yeah...that ugly tree in the front has got to go.|
There is an open house this Saturday for the house, which I'm going to and taking Jeremy with me, so we'll see how it goes. Hopefully it's amazing and I love it and the talks can begin.
Today I will attempt another hour long run after work. I haven't had much luck staying un-sneezy and snotty while outside for any amount of time (including driving), so at worst, I'll switch it up and hop on the elliptical. Gosh, my life is so hard!
