chocoholic

February 8th, 2006 at 02:11 pm

Work is soooooo slllooowwww today!! I am trying to keep busy but it is hard to find something interesting to read/do. The last couple of weeks have been super busy, so I shouldn't complain about a lull!

The key to not spending? Not having any money in my wallet. I can't buy lunch, or chocolate, or beverages, nor can I pay for parking. I'm trying to hold out until the 15th to take out any cash, too.

I have already consumed all the chocolate I brought today, which probably amounts to two or three Snickers bars (eep!). I'll attribute that to boredom and stress.

Frugalocity for today:
~ bringing breakfast, leftover bean soup, chocolate, and pop from home
~ taking the bus (finally!)
~ avoiding my favorite internet shopping sites
~ making more mini-savings goals for the rest of the year to prevent myself from spending and show myself how much I can save

Got a bit of a case of Jonesing going on - my friend is planning to buy a big, pricey home. They're already talking about having four TVs, a new computer, new furniture, etc etc etc etc. They make a lot more money than I do, but still...I hate feeling so behind people my own age. I know I shouldn't compare myself to others, but it's hard not to. Especially when we have the same background and same education (except mine was way more expensive!).

All this talk of home buying makes SO want to buy a house. I'm so afraid that if we do that, we'll get stuck here forever. He is dropping hints about wanting to get married, too. Yikes! I must be the only woman on the planet who doesn't relish the thought of marriage!

Tonight the massage lady comes - yay!

    There's no shame in not being ready to buy a house or get married. I'm not ready to buy a house yet either. I'd rather have the cash.

    I don't want to get married anytime soon either, although I'm a bit too young anyway - I'm only 20.

    I've never wanted to be married or have kids and I'm 45. Just wanted the responsibility for me and no one else. Fortunately my family was supportive of that lifestyle and I am fortunate to live in a time where, while not totally accepted, it isn't unacceptable to remain single. I'm so glad that I don't live in a time or country where women have very few options open to them, such as marriage or a low paying job.

    Dh was ready to get married before I was. He was patient and left it up to me to let him know when I was ready. We bought our house before we got married, FWIW.

    Thanks everyone!! I'm so glad I'm not the only one. It really feels like it sometimes.
