Staying and Enduring

Okay, so this weekend is going to be cold . . . and boring. As in pretty much hovering near -20C and staying there. 

(Yet, it will be between -12 and -17C in my house.)

So, the urge to run to the hills and Banff is strong. Yet, the other urge to just not spend any money I don’t have to is strong. 

The trouble is that this payday coming up was a surprisingly good one. Yet, if I run to the hills that extra cash would be gone. 

I just don’t feel like tossing that bonus away for a bit of warmth and comfort. I have repairs to pay for and savings to build. Besides, it feels weak to run away anyways.

I may or may not run the generator for a bit tonight, just to run it, and to put a bit of a charge in the batteries. 

Yet, I will not be doing anything with that charge, just putting it there to be drained away by the cold, and for the health of the batteries. 

I keep reminding myself that this will most likely be the last of the really cold snaps of this winter. There is no way to know for sure, however, but that is what I am telling myself. 

I want to get back on track with regards to my savings plan and at the end of the day, I just don’t want to spend on something that is not essential.

As always: Keep your head up, your attitude positive, and keep moving forward!
