busy busy fall

So got vacation shopping done šŸ™‚ yay!!! We’re flying out next Saturday & I am sooo so ready. I’ve also just realized how busy this fall is going to be!!! Let’s see:

**7 days until vacation
**After vacation I’ll start seeing patients at work every other week
**Two dentist appts after vaca but before November
**Seeing my regular doctor in 5.5 weeks
**Going to see Celtic Thunder in concert in 6.5 weeks ((ā™„ā™„ā™„ā™„
**Specialist doctor visit in 6.5 weeks
**Hopefully getting approved for a mortgage & saving some money to pay upfront costs for a new house
**Then to top it all off hubby & I just bought our Christmas presents for
one another —- in less than 9 weeks we will be seeing Third Day in
concert!!! ā™Ŗā™Ŗā™„ā™„


And during all of this I will also be trying my best to consistently exercise & eat healthy. I’m nervous about my doctor visit….my blood sugars have been way out of wack lately & I’m afraid my a1c will be back up. šŸ˜¦ le sigh….but I am so so excited about all these things too.

After seeing my fall schedule laid out in front of me I’m a little nervous. I’m nervous about the mula. Saving money for a house while still spending some on the concerts I’ll be going to, do I have enough in my HSA for my dentist & doctors & if not what will my OOP be, paying off other medical bills & debts…And yet while it stresses me out to think of all these things, there’s also this part of me that knows it’ll be okay šŸ™‚ Once we get approved for a mortgage that’ll hold for 6 months before we have to redo paperwork & I think we figured that for appraisal & escrow, etc. we’ll need about $1500.

So while we’ll be paying of debts & splurging a little for two concerts, I don’t feel like we’re blowing our money. You only live once so yes while I need to be responsible I also want to live a little before we have a mortgage & kids. I want to go to concerts, run in 5ks, 10ks, half marathons, I want to work on myself, my weight, my body image…I want to have a good time. Is it okay to have a good time while trying to shop for a house & save $$ for said house? Idk…in my opinion yes the key is MODERATION!!! šŸ™‚

We decided to let ourselves splurge on vacation, that’s our last BIG thing. The concert tickets we got were a really great deal not expensive at all, still will splurge a tiny bit on some merchandise there….& I think that’s it. Other than that our money will go to bills, savings, & paying off debts…that’s reasonable right?

I’m rambling I know…just trying to settle my sudden panic attack & talk myself out of it. Looking at everything from every direction. I’m more nervous about my next a1c I think!!! emoticon

I am looking forward to getting back on that health wagon though šŸ™‚ Went for a long overdue run which felt great, can’t wait for my next one šŸ™‚ Mom & I are going to our first yoga class tomorrow woohoo!!! Didn’t eat so good today but will be more vigilent tomorrow….In the words of Miss Scarlet “After all… tomorrow is another day”. AH I’m feeling so great right now, so positive about the fall I have planned.

Sorry it was so long….thanks for listening emoticon
