New car, red budget

I bought a new car.  I think this was the right decision, but who knows?  It’s beautiful and I love it.  Alas, the note and debt are large.  I guess it’s an incentive to go to work when I’m depressed.

Today was payday, which for me means budget day.  I had a stack of receipts in my wallet I’d be avoiding putting in on a regular basis because if I saw how high the number was I was bound to freak out if there wasn’t new money to cover it all.  Total for January in bullshit purchases?  Almost $1000.  That’s not including bills or food or needed purchases.  That’s just what I spent on random crap.  I don’t even know what to say about that.  I could have a second house or something for $1000 a month.  Instead I have a lot of other things I probably didn’t need.

Regardless, I’m moving on and moving January’s red all over budget where I can’t see it and just trying to not screw up for February.  This may be difficult.  I finally got my new office and it’s a mess.  It has nothing I need in it which means I’m spending money on office supplies that work won’t reimburse me for.  I could probably argue for some supplies, but I wouldn’t get them for months and it’s hard to work without staples and clips and pens and such.  I’m hoping to go this weekend to get everything organized so my whole working days aren’t spent OCDing around the office.  Can’t pay the new car note with no money if I’m too busy filing and cleaning.

About Kira

How do you say "I hate the about me section" without sounding cliche? I haven't found a way yet, so instead you'll now be subjected to random bits of info so you at least know what the blog is about. I'm a 26 year old wife and fairly new mom trying to make a life for myself and my family. These things should be run of the mill, but alas, I have Bipolar (amongst other diagnoses that I have long since lost track of). So here I am, trying to juggle a professional career, marriage, motherhood...and my own general crazy. All the rest of the "about me" sordid details will have to come in time, but the bottom line is that I need somewhere to vent that makes me feel like I'm being heard (even if no one ever reads this) and if along the way I can help another person or two then all the better. **Full Disclaimer** For the record, Kira is not my real name. Pretty much everyone I know is aware of all of my issues, but I do have a career and such and need to keep some level of privacy due to that. And, well, I'm paranoid. View all posts by Kira
