It was nice, that taste of spring last week; but alas, we are back to the coldness that is winter.
I know that I really don’t have much to complain about, after all it only got down to -12C last night and it doesn’t look like it will dip much below -20C, anytime soon.
I have done this and worse before, so whoopee, big deal. It is just an adjustment period and a mindset shift that I have to get back into.
It was nice being able to lounge around my trailer in the mornings and evenings and play on the laptop or write.
Now, I am back to my hibernating mode and leaving the laptop at work. After all, what is the point of bringing it back to the trailer if I can’t use it?
If it is too cold, my fingers get clumsy and I am constantly hitting the wrong keys.
I have yet to find decent gloves (send me a link please) that would keep my fingers warm yet allow me to type in near freezing temps.
Again, I am not complaining, I am just relaying what I am going through. I will get through this by keeping my mind focussed on the doubly greener days to come.
The days of the green grass (I would settle for the non-snow-covered-brown-grass-of-real-spring) and the days where I am flushed with the green of the cash that will be flowing into my savings account to stay.
The days where I have control of my paycheque back. These days, all of my money is allocated so it is not really mine.
As I have said before every nickel of cash that I have falls into three categories:
- What I need to exist.
- What I may need to exist.
- Debt elimination.
I don’t count taxes as there is nothing I can do about them. They take them off my cheque before I get my cash and keep almost all of it come tax “refund” time anyways (don’t get me started).
I will adapt, I will adjust, I will survive and yes, I will get through this, and on to those doubly-green days ahead.
As always: Keep your head up, your attitude positive, and keep moving forward!
