It's been a while since I posted. Largely because when I diet I hate life and don't want to do anything. Sigh. But I'm close to being back in some of my clothes I outgrew over the last year and a half. I realized it was either lose 20-30 pounds or go buy new clothes. But I have clothes that are classic styles and aren't outdated, so it seemed like such a waste to buy new clothes. Plus, if I lose weight the clothes I knit will use less fiber and with fiber prices, that's a good thing!
Mr. Gaia and I also ended up having a crisis. We got into a fight about the kitten (still not 100% on his litterbox, but he's getting fixed tomorrow) and we both ended up being fully open about our disappointments in life. He's disappointed because he wants to go to grad school at Cornell, but I won't move where it's that cold. I'm disappointed because I desperately want to have a baby girl but he won't have another child (which I do understand and get) or consider adoption (which I don't get). I've been having a hard time with the whole thing lately because several girls have given birth to baby girls lately - girls that didn't want to be pregnant and aren't that happy about having a kid at all. So I have had a bit of depression lately.
Anyway ... I've decided to funnel some of my energy into focusing on something I can change and make better. Our finances. An online community posted this article 31 Days To Fix Your Finances and then challenged us to try to follow the steps. So I thought I would do that here.
