Laziness and Guilt

I must be in one of those debt reduction rough patches. It is getting hard for me people! I think part of the reason I stopped updating this blog is due to laziness. It is tough always trying to think of new things to write about, not to mention having to write about it! Another big component of it is being in a new environment. Once we moved into our new apartment I kind of just lost interest. I'm not sure what it is about the new apartment but it just feels different when I post on the blog.

But most importantly, I think the biggest reason why I haven't been updating is GUILT. I have some confessions to make. I have fallen off the debt-reduction wagon. Once we moved I had to spend tons of money on new things for the apartment. I stopped caring about being frugal. If I wanted a new coffee bean grinder, I bought it. Why? I don't know. Because I wanted it! I wanted new clothes, so I went and bought those too. And rent is not cheap! My last paycheck was the first paycheck that I did not take money out of for the credit card. It was a tough decision for me but if I had put the usual $500 towards the credit card I would have no money left for Vegas.

Yes, thats right. I said it. VEGAS. I am finally taking a vacation. It has been so long since I have done anything fun that I figured I might as well live a little. I'm scared I'm going to look back on my 20's and remember only the sweat and toil of paying off my stupid credit cards.

But paying off my credit card is still a huge priority to me. I think I've just got to find some good balance between LIVING and paying off debt.
