I have a friend who is so worried about this that she eats everything on her plate in order of those she was most embarrassed to box up. She would start with the pickle chips, then the fries, and then the sandwich. She felt less embarrassed to box up a sandwich half than a box of fries and pickles.
We have the term insurance. The main reason is the mortgage. The second reason is after experiencing a death in the family, we realized that sorrow can make it hard to take care of yourself for little a while. Money panic during the recovery just makes things worse.
@jmdj hooray! thanks for sharing. The floors look great. I love the effect.
This post without pictures??!! What a tease!
I'm a regular at doing a dry-January. Here's the thing that I notice the most: THE SLEEP. holy crap sober sleep is amazing! Also- the extended time at home ends up forcing a winter clean out of my house. Last night I cleaned all my air filters for lack of something better to do. This weekend's excitement is a trip to the recycling center and drop off donations at goodwill.
@garli Good job! Six Sigma is tough, and it'll be worth your hard work. I've seen some friends rewarded generously for that cert.
I unsubscribed to all of the sales alert emails from stores I frequent. I was starting to get the feeling that I was buying because there was a sale, and not because I actually needed something.
This is wonderful. Thank you for sharing this.
@HelloTheFuture "But when dating is set up like shopping, you approach it with a shopping mentality". THIS is so true.
@ThatJenn I am in the situation your spouse is currently in. We solved a bit of the awkward by setting up a will/right of survivor-ship agreements. It's helped immensely. I didn't buy the place, so I'm not interested in it becoming mine suddenly, HOWEVER I would like to know that there is a safety-net for me in place if something should ever happen to the husband.
