No Time for ANYTHING!

It is true, that if you have alot of work on your hands, you have no time for anything. Relaxing is out of the question and sleeping seems to get in the way of this as well. Even though I picked up some more shifts at work and have been at home less, I find that leaves even LESS time for shopping and spending money. I know that when Im home on the weekends sometimes all day Saturday and Sunday doing nothing, we seem to find a way to entertain ourselves by going to the movies, mall, finding stuff that we WANT to buy or that maybe the house "needs". Then we make trips to home depot and want to remodel this or fix up that and then we have spent about $100 or so on something that really could have been thought and planned through. So heres a toast to work and keeping busy! My wife has conferences to go to and is busy with school tasks, so we both are keeping busy with each other. Also we find that the time that we are together, its a more valued time and have no wasted minutes, just fun. Ive also started to go on a weight reduction/ gain... Im perfectly happy with my mass and want to have a more muscular template to work with this summer. So Im on a daily regime to get this worked out by Summer/ Fall weather. We are also planning something tropical in the winter to travel to; of course this is always finely tuned to the budget. We are still on track of the living on 1 this month and plan on socking away almost $2600.00 each month. Budgeting her $2200 on our living expenses will be posted shortly.
