The good thing is that although we are not doing a very good job of documenting it, we ARE doing a good job of CRUSHING IT!
We have spent the last few months doing a lot of really awesome stuff towards improving our lives, and striving towards financial independence as always. However, in the process we seem to have gone through the entire summer feeling as though all we have done is work.
Wow! An expensive month. Truth be told, we are a little embarrassed by it. It feels like we have fallen into that trap of the less time we have, the more we spend.
"I love teaching and changing people's lives, it just doesn't pay enough, which means I work more and don't spend time with the kids, and don't have time to workout... I like the idea of having the freedom to make my own schedule and not have to be stressed to find time to do a simple thing like do the laundry".
For those interested I will explain what the mechanism of a "disorder" looks like when someone cannot take responsibility for their lives. (including financial) So, yes... I'm "diagnosing" some of what I see and hear in terms of people's "disordered" finances.
