Not a good day

April 19th, 2010 at 06:51 pm

Today was not a good day. I am in a bad mood. Had a fight with OH (other half). Work was a circus. Is there a silver lining in all of this? I can't really see it. Did not go run as I had planned to, but watched crap TV and wasted at least an hour of my time. Read a bit of the 401K idiot book on the train. Maybe it's too simple? But I am just on the first few chapters. I will give it a go for a few more days.

Friday Update

April 16th, 2010 at 08:42 pm

Nothing much in terms of updating. I ran, which is always good. I also resisted the temptation to buy lunch. I updated my spreadsheet where I keep track of how much money I am spending and saving and in what category. It's only the 16th of the month and I have spent $120 on grocery! Well, that category also included house hold items, but I have only bought some detergent and paper goods. Need to watch that area.

I hope to go run again tomorrow. I have a lot of things to take care of, so it is not going to be a relaxing weekend. In fact, I don't know when I will have a relaxing weekend. I have been under so much stress lately, I feel my neck and shoulder tightening all the time. I need to learn to manage my time properly.

Well, here is hoping tomorrow will be productive. Good night everyone. Have a lovely weekend!

A few updates

April 8th, 2010 at 10:17 pm

This week seems to have passed by in a whirl! Anyway I am glad it's the weekend soon. Does't feel like I have achieved much this week, but I did go for a run! I also filled out my taxes using a different software and I get slightly more refunds. How is that possible? I used the same information that I gave to the 1st software. So I guess I know which one I will be using to submit my taxes!!

Here are a few things that I did today so that I can check them off.

[X] Run
[X] Eat a healthy salad for dinner
[X] Clean up my bedroom
[X] Finish the book I was reading
[X] Redo the taxes using a diff software

Sadly there isn't much else to add.

Tomorrow I will:

[X] Verify all information one more time, and submit the tax forms.
[X] Fix an issue - work related

Need to learn to be nicer to myself

April 3rd, 2010 at 09:23 am

It's true. I feel that I am not so nice to myself. I feel overwhelmed with too many things that I need to get done, too many things that need to be sorted out. I feel like I never measure up to my own expectations, hence I mostly always feel bad about it. Even when I set out to do something, I get annoyed with myself because it's hard to concentrate on the thing in hand because there are just too many other things I should be doing. I feel like a walking to-do list!

Does anybody else feel like this? Or, is it just me?

This entry is not financial per say, but I am sure that the side effect creeps into my financial life as well.
