Bryan and I seem to have contracted the never-ending cold. He came down with it about a week before I did, and is still suffering. It starts with the sniffles, and proceeds into a cough that seems especially bad at night. I’m two weeks in now, and ready for this to pass. Not the worst sickness we’ve had, but the length definitely makes it exhausting!
February seems to be progressing fairly well. I hope to have some good news in the next month or so. I’m super paranoid about jinxing things, so I’m not ready to share too much. But I’m excited about what’s to come! My net worth has already rounded the corner from last month’s decline, so it looks like this will be a great month growth wise. And my state and federal refunds have already hit my bank account, so there’s an extra $1,750 towards the student loan!
For now, we’re taking things day by day. Bearing with the cold, thankful that there isn’t too much snow, and trying to keep with our healthy eating and resist the lure of comfort food. If it were up to me, I’d be eating grilled cheese and mac n’ cheese every day! Especially this time of year. But my belly (and thighs!) seem to think that’s a terrible idea. What’s a girl to do?
To those of you who celebrate it, Happy Valentine’s Day! Bryan and I acknowledge it, but don’t really do much. We won’t go out, but he’ll probably get me a card, maybe some flowers from the grocery store. As a girl who’s spent pretty much all of her adult life single, I like the acknowledgement, but also like that we aren’t spending a lot of money on it. I’m wondering if my Dad will continue his tradition of buying us chocolates this year. It’s the one thing I’ve always loved about Valentine’s Day. Although, with all of his daughters in serious relationships, and my two sisters (possibly) getting married this year, I wonder how long he’ll continue the tradition?
2015 is starting off to be a pretty good year!
