Midweek Slump

posted on: Wednesday, January 8, 2014

Yesterday I was so productive at work. I was dominating my TeuxDeux list. I went on a walk. I never ever ever go on a walk even though I work in front of the harbor and there's a beautiful trail.

Today my body is shutting down and exhausted. My one word for the year "rested" is proving to be harder than I had imagined. I'm still going to bed every night past midnight and I wake up early because the kids wake up early. I need an action plan to get myself in bed at a reasonable hour.

There are lots of things on my mind today, things I want to organize and put in order. Finances is one of them. Last year I started listening to the Dave Ramsey show and I got fired up. I went from trying not to spend too much to writing down every single thing we spent money on, from our new car to gum at the corner store. I have a spreadsheet on google doc where we keep our budget. It's one of the best things we did in 2013 and something I want to continue improving on for 2014. Also, another huge help was hiring a financial advisor. We have ours through LearnVest and she really helps us stay on track for bigger goals like retirement, paying off student loans, and saving for a house.

I read this post today from one of my favorite bloggers and designers and I really like Erin's view on work and money, it made me think even more about our finances.

With that said I wanted to share some things I've enjoyed reading today that's helped get me energized and through my work day.

// This new to me blog.
