Ok, hear me out. Money. Does it frustrate anyone else?
It's not like we're lacking in the money department - far from it. We're not rich, but we're comfortable, and it's to a point where I really shouldn't be freaking out about a little purchase. Let's take for instance work. People constantly go over to the Class Six and buy snacks, or they go over to the PX for lunch and get Subway. Today, I was contemplating getting a chocolatey treat that would cost maybe 80 cents. Aside from the fact that the calorie count and sugar count dissuaded me, I also decided not to spend 80 cents. Really Chantal? 80 cents won't break the bank.
Does anyone else have this issue? An overwhelming guilt over spending money? I know we're saving up for IRAs, vacations, houses, children and etc., but isn't money there for spending? (Here, Brandon would chime in with something witty). We hit our savings goal almost regularly, so why do I feel bad about spending the extra money? Or spending the money that's allotted in my budget? I don't know!
Anyway, I'm not feeling depressed, just a little perplexed over this. It's not the first time either!
In other news, I was productive at work, at least in my eyes. We decorated the office and put up a tree. I helped customers, inputted information, did other stuff. It was a good day! I capped it off with a run/walk with Dexter, who is finally sleeping on the couch (he wanted to play fetch for a couple hours after the run...) On TV? The Sing-Off!
