I am up at sparrows fart about to do groceries coz I can't stand doing the supermarket run with the rest of the world in attendance. I plan to be knocking on Woollies door at 7.00am.
That said I am pretty happy to have the finances to actually buy some groceries as it was touch-and-go there for a bit this month. There was a point where we had $30 left to our name! Lucky for us some payments came through. Also lucky for us we can draw down with our bank in case of emergency.
Doing this whole children's book writing thing has actually caused a bit of financial stress in our world. As has the cheerleading caper. Both are done without income in mind, and both take time away from me building up my business (or going back into the rat race), which is putting a bit of a strain on the household budget ... and of course (at times) the husband/wife relationship. But I really feel that it's going to all work out in the end. That the purpose behind both endeavours is far greater than immediate income. Luckily for me, my Husband sees that too (mostly).
So today I want to say thank you to my husband who bears with me as I plod along, and is able to bring in a good income so that I can be a mumpreneur (of sorts) as well as do volunteer stuff, hopefully creating a legacy for my children and loads of other kids around the place in the process. I promise it will all be worthwhile ... and that business and books will take off to a point that money is no longer a worry.
Big statement! It will happen .... I can feel it in my waters ...
If you want to hang out with the happy people then grab some gratitude and head on over to Maxabella Loves and A Day in the Life of Us.
