Major Insecurity

(Warning, major shallow rantings ahead!)

I just had this chat with one of my oldest and dearest friends (who recently got married. congratulations, OZ). And because of this really ugly dream that I had last night, I suddenly find myself insecure of my body. I tell you honestly though, I was rarely insecure of my physical appearance. Well, except for the fact that I was a whole lotta insecure back in high school when I was lanky with kinky hair, really thick glasses, braces and those disproportionate gums. But that’s another story.

Flattered or Flustered?

If someone you know calls you “MALUHO” or extravagant, would you be happy or offended?

Me? I was really, really offended. I never saw myself as extravagant or according to dictionary.com, spending much more than is necessary or wise; wasteful. Maybe when I was still single, yes. I did have a lot of spending money then. (looking back now, I should have put some aside for savings, heehee)

But now, I definitely am not.  The only extravagance that I consider indulging in now is the load I buy for my cellphone, movie dates that the husband and I have every after payday, eating out once a week, usually every sunday and my bi-weekly pedicures.

I just hate it when someone judges me.  I guess that person doesn’t know me at all.

Utak shopping

Payday is a few days (hours) away and my mind is already brimming with things I need (?) to buy.  Yeah, I know, goodbye to my resolution to save, for now, just for this payday (I hope). She just turned 1 and there are so many things I need to get for her.

My shopping list:
1. baby dress hangers
2. toy chest
3. teether keeper
4. bath toys basket

Can’t wait to go shopping for the daughter.  😀

Budget smudget

When I accepted the job offer from my current employer, I said to myself I’m sure I would be better in handling money this time around since my pay is bigger and is more than enough for the three of us (well, that’s considering we’re living with my grandma). Man, was I ever so wrong! Its been 2 months and we’re still deficit spending. (and we’re still in the red)
