Self Pity Part 1

I'm feeling sorry for myself. I have a cold. Stuffy nose, sore throat, achy. Drippy sinuses. Typical head cold. I was so looking forward to allergy season being over and what do I do? Catch a cold the first day of no pollen activity!

The thing about colds is, I don't get sick enough to miss work, but I shouldn't go because I'm just spreading the virus around. But since it feels wrong to stay home, I go in anyway. Then I feel bad enough that I can't focus on the task at hand. Silly,isn't it?

Fortunately its the weekend and I can load up on cold medicine, have a hot bath and sleep in tomorrow. Now that's what I call a plan!

Tomorrow is budget day. B and I will be doing the budget for November. Actually, I will do the budget then we'll talk about it and make adjustments as necessary. We've been doing this long enough that rarely are there any changes to be made. Every once in a while, I learn there is some purchase or 3 we need to make that I wasn't aware of and I have to go back to the drawing board. There won't be many changes the rest of this year. Thanksgiving and Christmas are planned and budgeted for. Before then is our anniversary. We decided that this year our Birthday's and anniversary were going to be dumbed down so we could save the money. We're replenishing our 3 to 6 month emergency fund that got depleted by our move to Georgia.

Ok, time for that hot bath.
