Health, sofas, and growing up.

Lately, we've been juggling some serious age-appropriate problems. A mortgage, a car, utilities, health, furnishing our condominium, storage, life insurance, and all that.


I can't imagine how one person can do this all by him or herself and also have a child to take care of. Baby steps I guess. We all have to grow up some time.

The other day, I miscalculated. I made a boo-boo when I was studying our expenses. We were going to give a gift that required a big enough amount. I thought I had that covered. It was a no-brainer because that was for someone's health. So why think twice right? Money will come and go and I thought I had enough. Well, lo and behold --- negative balance. I totally forgot to about our other scheduled payment because it was so recently added. Blanked out of that one. Good thing there was  a pinch of savings left behind to cover for our monthly expenses.

My gosh that stressed me.

We were supposed to go and take a trip Halifax. Then that changed to Chicago. Then our friends invited us to New Hampshire. We just decided to say no rather than to incur more credit.

But now we're looking to get a new sofa. Something that we're investing on for the next few years here in our new home.

Decisions decisions. Priorities first. And even with this stress, Thank you, Lord for all our blessings.
