Well, I have a big decision to make and I’m learning a lot about myself in the process of making it. First big realization: I don’t like making big decisions. It’s stressful and I have a face full of blemishes to prove it. Second big realization: I am an avoider. I do everything in my power to distract myself from things so I don’t have to think about them. For example, in the last few days I have decided that it is really important that I start spending my time grocery shopping and cooking after scouring the internet for yummy recipes. I NEEDED to catch up on my favorite shows while I acted like a complete vegetable in front of the computer, and I have talked on the phone with absolutely everyone. (That one is less of a stall tactic and more of a ‘I haven’t talked to people in a million years and I really do want to catch up” reason.)
The truth is I have to decide between lifestyle and money. I think money is winning this battle so lifestyle can win the next one but I’m not happy about that. Ugh. I wish I could hire someone to do make these choices for me. Life would be so much easier.
On a lighter note, my friend Amy turns 40 soon and had an early birthday bash. It was lots of fun and I’ve included a few photos. She really knows how to throw a good party!
