Only two blog posts for the whole of September. I've never written so little in the almost three years I've been blogging.
As of this morning I weigh almost as much as I did when I was nine months pregnant. I've never been this big except when I was two of us.
I don't have the lodger that we changed our whole living arrangements in order to accommodate. I don't have all the work I thought I was getting for this year. I've never been this close to no money in all my adult years (and most of my childhood years as well).
But hey, it's October 1st, the school year has started in earnest (after the long summer break and all the Jewish holidays following), the weather is noticeably cooler, we have returned to routine! In addition to all that, God has sent me a sign via His angel Elaine Colliar.
Elaine writes Mortgage Free In Three. She is my heroine and guru on all matters to do with affording a good life with very little income. Today, on the very day I made the commitment to, as Elaine always says, pull up my big girls' knickers and get on with it, she published STOP-tober: The Money Diet. I knew instantly that by the powers of cosmic synchronicity and/or a divine hand, this post was written especially for me.
This month I am going to stop too because sometimes you need to stop in order to start. That's all for now. More tomorrow.
