After a long week, I’m here with this week’s edition of Link-End Round-Up.
This week definitely didn’t turn out as planned, which is a good thing. I was scheduled to attend jury duty this week and since this was my first time, I assumed and prepared to be there all week. However, by the grace of God and the fact that there were more people than needed, I was released around 12:30 on the first day. So, I’m off the hook for the next 10 years, but hopefully longer than that.
On Wednesday, in honor of International Womens Day, I challenged myself to spend no money. I felt accomplished AF that I was actually able to not spend a penny that day. This mini challenged helped me to realize ways I overspend and when I feel mostly tempted to spend. I thought that I would be tempted more in the morning when I would get my quick fixes of overpriced lattes and a cheap breakfast sandwich. However, that wasn’t the case, because I told myself there is plenty of FREE coffee at work. Also, the company brought sausage and chicken biscuits the previous day and there were some still left over. Oddly, I felt the most desire to spend money on my way home. I rarely take anything out to cook and stop to pick up something to cook or eat on the way home.
Fortunately, I had things at home I could eat for dinner, but this made me realized that I need to put some time into preparing meals. Hey, this can be another personal challenge for me to work on. Since the forecast is showing that we have a 40% chance of snow flurries this weekend (WTF?!), I will use this time to stay inside and concoct a game plan. I got this.
In the meantime, I hope you enjoy this week’s edition of Link-End Round-Up. Have a good weekend!
