I was all freaked out this morning about it being the first and the budget and all that so what did I do? I packed up the kid and the van and we went to the beach. That's a free outing don't cha know...I'm very grateful to live in such a beautiful place. It relaxed me enough so that I could come home and organize my donation to the charity that will be coming tomorrow to pick up my gently used goods. Feels great to clean out the closets and organize a bit. I also paid the bills and started the new expense sheet for the month. Breathe. It's all good.
