Years added back to my life!!!

January 23rd, 2006 at 02:52 pm

I met an incredibly huge deadline today at work. It was so huge that my stress levels were making me crazy. I was even yelling at the people who have helped me get where I am. Will be sure to apologize tomorrow.

We are going out to dinner tonight to celebrate - no coupons, no specials. It was that big of a deal.

All afternoon as I was wringing my hands, waiting for people to get me thier info, I thought I would treat myself to some new shoes as a reward. Once I completed the project and left my office, my relief was so great and my senses so clear that I thought, "There is no way I am spending my money right now and indebting myself to this craziness for the rest of my days." And I drove straight home.

I'll go in tomorrow to see what the reactions are - yay or nay. I will spend the rest of the week cleaning up minor details and making sure all invested parties are satisfied, but that will be a cake walk in comparison to the past six months of what I've been going through.

I cannot fully express the relief I am feeling.

Spending for today was .65 for a Pepsi. I raided a co-workers candy jar several times and brought my own lunch. Payday isnt until next Tuesday, so things will be tight. I may just raid DH's quarter jar. He packs them away (an old habit from when we had to go to the laundromat) and then they sit in the drawer for ages. Yes, I think I need to liberate several ounces of those and have them on hand (my hand) just in case. That way I wont pull out cash from the cc or add to my debit account at work. Sometimes just having the money on hand is enough and I end up not spending it anyway.
