With financals being one of my favorite things to talk about, I find that I go through slumps. Such as today where my accounts are in correct order and I have already planned for next weeks paychecks, I find that, yes, I am in a slump. I'm always looking at better interest rates and what's best for my money and right now, I'm content (normally I'm not). It's one of those, I throw up my hands in the air and wonder well, good job, is there anything else I need to do?? There is that threshold of when you've analyzed something so much and so far that you feel like you've beaten a dead horse. Well I'm there and its not so much a depressing state but rather pondering the 'what ifs' and had I done it all correct; and backtracking again.

Wait... something new> I filled out some 5 minute survey and got my starbucks $5 gift card for answering their questions. Of course these were all anonymous questions, and for all my hard work I will be enjoying ONE morning a nice venti mocha. Dont get me wrong, I normally have a brew at home and I love my brew at home. Sometimes I cant make it out of the house without coffee. There has to be a way around waking up without coffee? or is it just that I am addicted?
