For some of us this is hard to do. In these trying times I have noticed that my routines have changed. I am planning things for every day. Let's take one particular subject. Meals/Cooking. I am planning meals for each day. I made sure I stocked breakfast foods, lunch foods and dinner foods. I made up a menu for each day and have cooked planned meals. Wohhhhhhh! I never did that before! I just realized yesterday it has gotten out of hand because of this food buying thing going on! Because I bought the food now I am obligated to eat it? I'm spending more money on food than I ever did. The freezers are full, fridge is full, cabinets are stocked. Bullcrap. I need to slow down and get back to my normal. I don't have to cook every night. I can eat peanut butter out of the jar with some crackers. Piece of cheese with a hotdog! I need to calm down and get back to "normal." I cannot let the crap going around denote what I am doing. I'm saving money on gas and laundry but spending more on food. Slow down. Take a deep breath. Eat a snack. Relax. Do something. Doesn't have to be big, just something. Play guitar. Slow down. F*** I hate getting caught up in stuff. I walk my own walk and I will not be pushed and shoved into doing stoopid stuff. See how easy it is to get ramrodded into the wrong program? Rant over. Have a nice day!
