One of the toughest responsibility that I am tasked to is that I have to make sure that the ends meet. I am so short in our budget that I think I would even be able to discuss commercial liability insurance. Unfortunately there are people who do not see that. Sure, my husband’s salary is higher that usual but we also have lots to play. We have to pay for our housing loan, car loan, we give some money to his parents as monthly allowance plus the utility bills. I don’t know how to make ends meet now. And most of the time I end up paying via credit card. I do hope I would be able to change that in the future. I just need to lessen our necessary expenses.
Right now, I am in a dilemma with some sort of friends. First, there was this person who I thought is a friend but turns out she is extending her hand to us not because she likes us but because she has an ulterior motive in befriending us. I already said no to her but I don’t know if she understand what I am saying or just ignoring what I am telling her. I am so disappointed with her but I don’t know how to approach her anymore. The direct approach does not work with her so what would you do if you are on my position. Ah she is getting into me that I am starting to avoid her. I don’t want to be rude but her action is asking for a more nasty approach. I hope in the future she won’t bother us anymore.
Most of the time when I talk to the husband I would always come up with the idea of working again. I wanted to help with the expenses and I have to admit we really need some additional cash injection. But our little girl does not want me to go back to work. So the husband told me to look for a hobby that would make me earn some money like what I did before. So, I told him maybe I should focus in music. You see we can come up with a music center for kids. I don’t know if we already need a numark 5000 mixer for what I have in mind but it would be nice to train kids who are musically inclined. Also it would be nice to introduce learning to toddlers through music, right? But I don’t know if I have the skills for that. Anyway, I would still look for other options. And I know I have the guidance to the path I should take.
Right now this is the most challenging task that I have encountered. Especially now that we are paying a huge amount for the car loan that we got. Well, I am not regretting the purchase of the vehicle since it’s a huge convenience for me and my daughter. Also it’s much nicer because we have something tangible as compared before where we mostly used our savings and we don’t know where we put them. For now, I am trying very hard to make ends meet. Unfortunately since I am not used to saving I am failing big time. haha. I am keeping my fingers crossed that we would be able to survive this budgeting woes.
And so it’s general cleaning again because the husband is coming home in a couple of days. I started with the garden since the vines are really growing and I have a hard time pulling them off their roots. Well, the veins are wild plants and I don’t know why they are there in the first place. I am so happy that my sister was able to put all the trash in the garden outside to be collected by the garbage collector. You see, they collect the trash at around 5:30, too early! I cannot wake myself up that early especially if I got a late night, well, if you bribed me with a harley davidson that would be a different story! lol! Anyway, I have to dedicate next week to cleaning and preparing hopefully this bad case of laziness would not get in the way.
Before, I thought that when my daughter grows up I would have more free time to work but unfortunately I found that it isn’t. Or I am just feeling a bit burn out when it comes to my work which I have been doing for five years now. So now, I would just sit in front of the desktop for about one day per week to work. Well, I still have my laptop and MacBook plus my iPhone so I am still online most of the time. But when I comes to work really it’s a hard task. Not to mention that it’s also clashing with all my responsibility as a homemaker and mother. I am just thankful that I have the strength to carry on my task. Thank you Lord!
There is something magical about the act of taking an ordinary space and making it into something really special. Whether you already have a pretty sweet space or you just want to make the best of an okay place, there are a ton of different ways to make what you have a good deal closer to what you really want. These ways allow you to live the kind of life you enjoy the most.
That’s me! But I have to shrugged of that laziness and viola I am now using my desktop and trying to accomplish as much as I could before cooking the spaghetti that my sister requested. I am currently planning my little girl’s party for her school. That’s the only party that we would be having for her since we are going out of town ( on the far north) as requested by my husband. I am keeping my fingers crossed that the weather will cooperate and there would be no sickies on the house. Please, Lord! And yes, I have to weeks to prepare not only for the little girl’s birthday but also my husband’s vacation. Oh yes I am very excited.
