Another thing I need to do is rework my budget based on what I am currently making and cut some corners. Some will be easier to do and others not so much. I often have a tough time saying no when it comes to social activities. See, I often plan to do only so much and then end up going out more....movies, plays, drinks, coffee/tea, dinner, shopping. They are my "squirrels". (If you have seen the animated movie "Up" then you will know how the dogs are distracted by squirrels). Socializing distracts me. I do not intend to be a hermit, though at times that is just what I need, but I do need to live within a reasonable budget and still have fun (squirrel!!). Anyone know of fun free things to do in Van and who wants to join me??
I am a planner so this really should not be that hard for me. I still do not know why I am struggling with this whole trip. Yes, I am slow at doing pretty much most things in my life so I am not different with this situation. But my frustration with myself grows and this scenario of less work and things breaking around me. Well I guess I can just do what I can, make some better choices, remain focused and try not to let these setbacks take too much space in my mind. Okay, let's get on with it.
