My List

September 18th, 2016 at 01:05 pm

1) I am a spender. I mostly spend on home improvement items, crafts, and things for my kids.

2) I am a saver. I always have a checking cushion. I always have an emergency savings in cash, saving accounts, and lines of credit.

3) For the first time in over 4 to 5 years, I have credit card debt that wasn't paid in full this last statement.

4) I have used up all my savings pretty much dry in the last month, because...

5) I am in the process of a divorce. My choice, but so much pain- headaches and heartaches.

6) I have previously blogged here under "someone who walks thru a sticky black material" since 2010 but due to #5, I am a little cautious.

7) I am in the lower-30's years old.

8) I have two awesome little boys (toddler ages) who are autistic.

9) I used to dream of learning languages and traveling, but I have learned that I am more of a homebody.

10) I dislike politics. I understand them too well, having worked in a field that dealt with them. I cannot wait for the election to be over.

11) I have primarily lived in two Midwest states my whole life, plus short stints in Boston and South Carolina.

12) I cannot wait to really have my life 100% in my hands again. I have my boys and I have me. We are HAPPY.

13) I graduated from college in the beginning hard-hit part of the recession. I shall always be bitter about the choices those a few years before me and those a few years after me got to have.

14) I have learned that I no longer have a favorite color. I like brights and I like neutrals and I like black/greys and I like browns...

15) I struggle to understand the girly-girl types who don't want to learn how to do things themselves or get down and dirty to fix/build something.

16) I love dressing up in skirts and dresses, but I am horrible at managing my fine hair and makeup.

17) I started suffering with depression and anxiety last fall, when I could no longer keep up with a full-time job due to the children's therapies, among other family issues. After several different medications, talk therapists, removal of stressors (see #5 for one, :-p), supplements, and exercise, I am starting to see the light at the end of the tunnel.

18) I cannot eat things in the nightshade family: tomato, potato, peppers, paprika, etc.

19) I am an introvert who can host shindigs and talk-the-talk like an extrovert, but I need my me-time to recharge.

20) I read frequently, but post infrequently. I love the SA family.
