Time to start over, again

May 26th, 2005 at 09:32 am

Hello. I've enjoyed reading the other journals here--it's so helpful to see how other people think things through and come to financial decisions. And I really like the idea of having someplace to check in and focus on finances every day.

As you can probably tell from my name, I really want to feel less stressed about money. Actually, there are several things I tend to get stressed out over, but I feel like getting a handle on the money thing will help in other areas, too.

Health, for instance. I'm dealing with high blood pressure for the first time this year. Worrying about money probably isn't helping. Plus, if I'm spending too much time fussing with our budget and running after bargains, I'm not using that time for exercising, meditating or making healthy meals.

I'll be starting a new budget system in June, so I thought this would be a good time to start my journal. Wish me luck!
