Writer’s Block + A Guest Post
When I was still in school, I always knew I was procrastinating starting a new assignment or writing a paper, if I was excited to spend an entire Saturday doing laundry, cleaning, vacuuming, cooking or baking. Apparently that behaviour has stayed with me, but is now how I react to having writer’s block.
Over the weekend, I made a crockpot full of vegetarian chili, a quiche, and a dozen oatmeal chocolate chip muffins. Sure, meal planning will help my budget this week… but I think I was just keeping my hands busy in the kitchen, because I had nothing to write here.
I did still, however, manage to draft up two posts for Thursday and Friday, which will have January’s final numbers and a fresh, new budget for February. And those were easy to write! What is it about writing a new budget that is so exciting!? I can tell you that, even a year or so ago, I never would’ve found that “fun”.
Oh, that reminds me. I wrote a guest post for Jordann’s blog that explains exactly how I started budgeting in the first place. If you’re curious to see how this all started, make sure you go read it. Or you can just continue to drool while you look at all of the food that is waiting for me in my kitchen…
Happy Monday, friends!
