October in a nutshell!

Last month I promised I would do better at getting the monthly sum-up out in a timely matter. I’m not exactly doing stellar at that promise, but at least we are not quite half way into the month like I was last time ๐Ÿ˜‰

Activities and exercise
I’ve started a new treatment in addition to the osteopath treatments I’m already doing. It’s been a bit busy with an average of close to 2 treatments a week (hopefully that will slow down soon). Some of the treatments wear me out a bit, and don’t leave meย much energy for regular activities and exercise. Which means I’mย still squeaking by, at an average of only 1,5 times a week.ย 

As my current schedule will continue a while longer, I think my yearly goal of average of 6 times a week by the end of the year, will be a big fail. Next year maybe?

Declutter
Weirdly enough, a couple of items did make it out-the-door in October. But I never posted about them. So here it is, my decluttering effort of October;

  • 1 Logitech computer speaker set
  • 7 plastic compression bags
  • 2 Natural Cotton/PEVA Storage Bags
  • 1 grey storage bag
  • 1 Tigger cup

That’s 12ย items out-the-door, pictured below.

Still not much I know, but hey.. one item here, one item there.. it still racks up.

I will, I will get a few more items out-the-door in November… I’m sure ๐Ÿ˜‰

Only buying necessities
Eating out – We are back to our usual poor performance ๐Ÿ˜ฆ Yep! You heard me right. We are back to eating out, a lot! I’m sure that doesn’t come as a big surprise now, does it!

My fault entirely, and I “blame” it all on the treatments (gotta blame it on something, right?) as I’m worn out afterwards and just want an easy meal.

I’m sure.. that will change when I get into a more regular treatment schedule again… Well… I can hope, can’t I ๐Ÿ˜‰

Buying non essentials – I’ve been looking for a nice looking “fleeze”/indoor jacket for quite some time, and I finally found a black one I like. ย As I quite often do, I ended up having to buy from the men’s department, the woman’s versions just don’t seem to have long enough arms .. go figure? But it will explain why theย linkย is to the men’s department ๐Ÿ˜‰

Financial goals
I’m still putting away every cent I can towards my yearly down payment, and I’m happy to announce that I’m already there and then some, 2 months early ๐Ÿ™‚

Projects
No projects this month. My friend (who moved this summer) is working away at sewing stuff for some christmas markets that are coming up, which means that any of the leftover tasks in her house have been put on hold until the markets are over.

That’s it for October sum-up.

    1. Thank you! It’s cool when you know you have your finances firmly in check.. I do remember a time…. a long time ago, mind you ๐Ÿ˜‰ But still, it’s nice to know I can still manage to follow my somewhat “harsh” downpayment plan , even though my finances have taken quite a dip during this year where I’ve been on almost full medical leave.

    1. Than you! Yes, the treatments can be a bit tiring at times, especially when they are one after another. But I’m finally seeing some progress (I just hope it keeps) so there is hope ๐Ÿ˜‰ On the men’s department thing, I think it’s the 5 feet 10 inches tall, wide shoulders, extremely long arms and legs and big feet that gets me every time ๐Ÿ˜ฆ There is no way they are going to manage to squeeze me into the dainty little ladies outfits. Oh well….

    1. Thank you, Melinda. How sweet of you. I loved your answers to your own nomination, wish I was as funny as you ๐Ÿ™‚ I have to admit, I’m lagging a bit behind in my nominations (as in.. have not been good at writing about them and moving them forward). I will get to this one, I promise.. and hopefully I can catch up a bit on the other ones I have gotten as well ๐Ÿ˜‰ Again.. thank you ๐Ÿ™‚
