That Money Hungry Feeling!

28 Jul

Sometimes budgeting, working with what I have, and pinching penny’s takes a toll on me. Most days I don’t mind having that, “Make It Work Women.” period in time. Most of the time I love the pressure! It’s like a puzzle that others can’t seem to solve and it makes me excited knowing I can figure it out and make it happen. Other days, I’m like, “To heck with this – I just want to go blow a couple a hundred and not even think twice about it!” It’s one of those to heck with it days!

It doesn’t help when you are online looking at pictures like this:

Welcome to St. Thomas! ❀ Oh how I dream of having a home here!! Keep dreaming right!?

Most of the time all it takes is a little motivation like if I work hard enough and don’t waste my money now, I can find a way to have a lifestyle I’ve always wanted instead of a vacation I’ve always wanted. Instead of going to the beach for a week – I could have a beach house! It’s not one of those days here either. I’m being a little impatient and a little money hungry today! I don’t know exactly what it is but the I want bug has hit this home and Emma seems to be following along!

Today she has done her famous pout a zillion times:

and right after that pout comes an, “I want…!” oh darling – don’t we all?!

I guess I need to go with the advice that I give her, “I didn’t ask you what you wanted sweetie, this is what we are going to do. Maybe next time you can get something you want.”

Don’t worry Emma – Mommy doesn’t like hearing it either πŸ˜‰ so much so that I might just put on that pout face right here right now!

Back to the drawing board to figure out some motivation to keep me going and keep that money in savings instead of spending.

Thanks for stopping by!

Love Always,

J

    That is one impressive pout πŸ˜€ Not sure I can do one that good but I know exactly what she feels like, bless her. I like your thinking though – save your money to buy the beach house rather than blow it on a temporary beach holiday.

      It is definitely impressive πŸ™‚ My pouts aren’t nearly as cute πŸ˜‰ haha!

      Oh thanks! It’s not the easiest or most rewarding way of thinking at first but I know I’ll appreciate it later..
