I feel like I've been running around like a chicken with it's head cut off (and sadly I do know exactly what that looks like... thanks Mom).
We've been debating (over and over and OVER again) about our New York/PA trip for the week after Easter. It has been a stressful and difficult decision. When your money is so tight it is really hard to make big ticket decisions. Is it worth it? What if something happens? I keep having Suze Orman's voice in my head yelling "Denied!". And know that, truthfully, we can't afford it. However it is one of those things we can't afford to miss either. I think it is very important to see my grandmother, who has been back in and out of the hospital) and I don't want to miss out on wedding dress shopping with my friend. Because we live in different states I just can't attend all the wedding functions and felt that this was the one worth making it out for. But, nonetheless, the financial stress has been needling me all week. It's just hard once you get in a super low budget zone to stomach going over it.
On other fronts I've been pretty lazy getting things out for Easter. I brought up the bin yesterday to occupy the girls while I got my gift box stuff together. And.... they pretty much destroyed the house. There are bits of Easter grass and whatnot ALL over. I should probably be cleaning...

Diet & Exercise:
I'm just focusing on trying to workout everyday. With Mr F's work schedule that usually means I have to miss 2 nights a week.. but I feel pretty good about 5 days a week. Still waiting to get my pilates reformer set back up! I'm going back (yet again) to food journaling. I have a goal and I'm staying focused on that.
