For all of the stress that this unemployment has brought, I have to say, I am realizing how lucky I am. I have the most amazing man in my life. The Amazing Jeff has handled this so well, and made me feel that this is just not that big of a deal. I know that I am not going to lose my home, my car or starve. I know that we will get through this, and we will be better for this. Right now, I am a bit upset because my former employer lied to me. Hopefully this new curve ball is something that I can quickly bounce back from.
A few weeks ago I stumbled across this contest on cheapsally.com. In a nutshell, people are competing to win a $100,000 blogging contract on cheapsally.com. This sounds…amazing. And so perfect! It’s all about finding ways to save my readers money. And I am all about that. So if you have found this blog from the BHTB contest…welcome! Currently I am 3rd in the state of MN, the top 5 move on to round 2! Soo keep it coming!! And Thanks for the votes. 🙂
I have other friends that are unemployed now as well, and they are my heroes. Seriously. I have had a roller coaster of emotions this week. I get excited, and then immediately feel stressed out about the money. And it goes on from there. I have however found that there are good things about this not having a job thing:
I can blog more 🙂
I can cook more!
I can actually get my business off the ground
I can train this season, actually train and maybe just maybe lose weight!
I can make this house a home.
I had a rough day this week, and I decided that I cannot have more days like that. It just cannot happen. Nothing got done, I missed training, and felt horrible all day. I must see this as a positive thing, and use it to my best advantage. This is what I wanted and this must be the universe’s way of giving me what I want, and teaching me a lesson.
That being said, I now introduce to you (da-dah-da-dah…) Frugal Friday! Frugal Fridays are going to be the best! I will share all of my money-saving tips I learned during the week, share DIYs and stuff you can do at home to save you money! I am kind of excited about this.
My money-saving goal for today…find cheap Renaissance Festival tickets. Some of TAJ’s co-workers want to go, and let’s face it, Ren fest is AWESOME!!
We went the first summer we were dating, just a few weeks after we met.
I mean, really, how can you not love this place?!
It’s the last weekend, and it’s the IRISH weekend. WOOT! I will let you know what I find! Off I go…
