(Does that sound like I am ecstatic that it's Monday?)
Hope all is well with ALL of ya'll!
It is HOT in the ATL.
It has been in the high eighties all weekend, and it will be 87 degrees today.
Now that's HOT.
I am doing half a day, today. I am not feeling 100%. As a matter of fact, I wrote in my journal this morning that May was a strange month for me, healthwise. So I am happy to see June. Maybe things will look up.
I think my biggest problem is that I am trying to do TOO much stuff. My days and evenings are tightly organized. I got this thing for making real heavy "to-do" lists, and for some reason, in May, I turned that up a few notches. So, I am dealing with a bit of fatigue, mentally and physically, behind that.
Yes, I've gotten a LOT done. But I have to schedule more down time. Really.
My weekend. I had a pretty good weekend! I had lunch at Bugaboo Creek Steakhouse with one of my favorite book club sistas, Kimmie D. Haven't seen her since last year sometime (we keep missing each other at meetings... sometimes I attend, sometimes she attends... you get the picture). So it was fun to catch up with her, and see what was up.
We always have the most amazing convos. I always walk away with some type of plan for myself.
Food was good... but they had stuffed animals that would start talking for no reason every 15 minutes . CREEPY! But very funny!
We even found out that our workplaces are 5 minutes apart. So you know what that means: we're going to hook up more! I am happy for that!
Wedding. My coworker Crystal got married this weekend.
That was a NICE wedding. Very nice. I took 115 pictures! Very nice, very elegant.
So, congrats to the lovely couple. I will do a more detailed post some time this week. (Uh, no, I won't put up 115 pictures, lol).
FFF meeting. We had a Triple F Possee, i.e., Financial Freedom Fighters meeting on Sunday. I baked up a few dozen of my chocolate chip pecan cookies special for the meeting.
I love this group because one of us ALWAYS have great news. Someone reaches a specific goal, or even pays off something... This is very encouraging to me.
I myself am still creeping along steadily on the financial tip. May was wierd for me. My glasses broke, so I dropped 400 bucks on glasses and contact lenses. I was NOT happy about it. I must tell you, it is difficult to NOT pull out a credit card and charge unexpected stuff like that. I guess I could've dipped into my emergency fund, but I didn't consider this a dire emergency. (And that's what I get for wearing the same pair of glasses for the last seven years.)
So, I am doing my best to develop better financial habits, and I think I am progressing along, thanks to my group.
Difficult to do... but it is doable. I have a very good group, and I have no excuses. None at all.
Getting rid of debt is like eating an elephant: gotta do it one bite at a time.
So, that is my weekend wrap-up...
Now, my buddy, The Green-Eyed Bandit, has been giving me the *gas face* for only posting a couple of times last week. She was at the meeting yesterday. I had to keep one eye on her. She has that evil green-eyed glare thing she like to do. I didn't want her to pick up a chair and knock me upside my head or anything.
How 'bout this, Bandit?
Listen real close, now:
Since your birthday's this month... June 20th, right?
How about I post EVERY DAY during the month of June.
*Blog family GASPS*
I ain't playing, Man.
EVERY. SANGLE. DAY.
I can do it!
Just for you, Bandit... and the blog fam, too.
Now, I must warn you: it may be heavy on the Food-for-Thought.
And I can already hear that Original Oldgirl The LBeezy. She whines about how longwinded I am. She's gonna start saying something new: "Leezie. That post was too short. NOT a real post."
Work it out, Beezy!
I think a lot. Too much, really. I could post about 5 times a day if it was just about posting my thoughts. It would be more spiritual stuff than funny... Hmm.
And after I do this... I don't want to hear another word out of you, Bandit.
Not one single solitary word.
And no more glaring. Please. You have eyes like a cat. They glow when the light hits them the wrong way. It is quite disturbing.
No more emails of "Where's todays post?"
Cut that out, Ma. Not a good look.
So stay tuned for more from the House of LadyLee in June.
Ya'll have a great week... ON PURPOSE.
