Day: November 4, 2008

Tuesday

More Badminton tonight.

This will be the third time since it stated in September.
Live just kinda gets in the way, but I think Tara and I are trying more and more to get to it.

We also started walking after dinner to help get a little more exercise.

And we’re finally trying to stick to a budget.

See, we had this nice little buffer where everything was paid and we still had scads of cash left over. Well, that buffer went somewhere, and looking around, I’d be damned to know where it went.
So we’re on the mighty cash only budget, and it’s starting to hurt.

In all honesty, I shouldn’t be complaining, and I’m not really in a position to do so.
Tara and I are well off by most definitions. We’re not behind on any payments, we putting a lot of cash into savings, and living well.
It’s just that we were living beyond our means for so long we just got used to it.
So we spend a good chunk of our paychecks paying for stuff that was bought/used so long ago that we don’t even remember where it went or what it was.

So we’re trying to get that under control.

We have our grocery budget that’s worked really well for us, and now we’re just trying to get our random spending under control.

Also, we’re trying to exercise more and eat less. Or at the very least, eat better.
But right now it’s small changes, as small changes are easier to take and add up over time.
That’s the theory, we’ll see how it works out.

Other than that, it’s been a pretty good Tuesday.

And for some reason LiveJournal is setting things a month and day ahead.

Gonna look into that…
