eating out kick

April 7th, 2005 at 11:05 am

Ever feel like you just don't care about your budget, and you do crazy things because you don't care? Like eating out a whole bunch? That would be me. Last night we went to a very expensive dinner, and my boyfriend insisted on paying, but still. We shouldn't get into these bad trends because I know they become habits. Today I bought him lunch at Taco Bell - much cheaper, but still eating out. I really am in a "who cares!!!" mindset lately. I'm so frustrated with work and life and housing and cars and everything else that I am tossing my hands up into the air. Bad, I know.

I think I need a break. The reason we left for Taco Bell today was because I desperately wanted to get out of the building.

I applied to several jobs yesterday and today. A few were in Portland, Oregon. I really am considering packing up my apartment and taking off.

    I am sorry your having a rough time of it. I wish I could offer someething inteligent, but really if I had the money I would prolly be doing the same thing, actually I am rather close to throwing it in and using a CC again Frown I hope a new job comes thru for you, then yo can get rid of some of the stress.

    I'm sorry to hear that you've had what sounds like a crappy few weeks. One of the other threads was "why do you sacrifice?" I sacrifice for what I call my emergency fund - my "kiss my ass" fund because I plan on saying those words right before I start to use it. Humor, as you might have guessed, is what keeps me going.

    FWIW, Portland OR is a neat city - Powell's Books, the Saturday Market, great asian restaurants and for us frugal folks, a pretty good light rail system and no state sales tax.

    Thanks, PrincessPerky. It is tough not to use the CCs, isn't it?? Thanks for the new-job vibes, too, I'll take all the good vibes I can get. BTW congratulations again on your baby!! I am really excited for you.

    Baselle, I LOVE that "kiss my ass" fund!! I should really start one of those, and perhaps that would keep me from spending on random things at random times. I'd really like to take a trip out to Portland again. I only spent a couple of hurried days there, but I did hit Powell's Books. I briefly considered crawling behind one of the shelves and living there for the rest of my days, but then I snapped back to reality. What a great store!
