The last day of September is here!
Today I tried the Cheddar Cheese Nut Things from Blue Diamond. I'm still not sure whether I like them or not. They're pretty cheesy which is good. They're not bad but not particularly my favorite either.
Anyway, I'm feeling much better today. Now that the wedding is over and life is getting back to normal, I've been thinking a lot about what I'm going to do next concerning my health. I am terrified of those fainting spells and I need to figure out why they happen so that I can make sure that it doesn't happen again. Last winter as soon as I got sick I would end up passed out on the bathroom floor and this year I'm on immune suppressants so the odds of me being sick are pretty good which really freaks me out. I cannot spend another winter in and out of the hospital. I missed more days of work last winter than I have in all the 5 years I've worked here. I'm really going to have to be very strict about my diet. I need to pack as much potassium in as possible, drink fluids until they're leaking out of my eyeballs, and be very careful about not taking in any gluten. I'll be curious to see what The Doc has to say on Friday about my little trip to the ER.
Last night I went over all my finances and determined that I'm going to have all the money that I've borrowed from my parents paid off by Christmas and then hopefully by next Christmas I'll be very close to paying off my credit cards completely. It will be nice if this coming February I can actually take my tax return and spend some of it on myself for once. Usually the money is gone before it even hits my bank account. I could really use some new clothes! As long as I can stick to my budget over the next 3 months, I'll be good to go in January. I already have money set aside for Christmas so that's no problem. I'm just not going to have a lot of weekly cash from now until the end of the year, this month especially, so I have to be very careful about my spending. As long as I can start off the new year without owing myself any money I'll be all set. Easier said than done, but it's only 3 months! I'm in better shape now than I've been in my entire life so let's keep it going.
Ok, I have to get some work done, have a great day!
