Stress... but otherwise everything is awesome  
So yeah, things are pretty f-ing fabulous and super rad with Pete. I am very much in love with him! Yes, that's pretty fast, but it just feels right. This is not just the NRE talking, I swear! He is the most amazing boyfriend I could have hoped for and I have never felt as comfortable with a person as I do with him. He's adorable, incredible, smart, witty, sexy, dorky and geeky... and I know he feels the same way about me. I definitely feel lucky... There is no reacher and settler, only reachers. Full on adoration happening here. For all the times I have said I was broken - I am fully and completely healed, thank you very much! <3 <3 <3 But enough mushy stuff...

Outside of my bliss with Pete, I'm really stressed about money right now. I don't know how it snuck up on me like this... well yeah, I guess I do know when I look back at the grand scheme of things. I think I need to start budgeting stricter, especially at the bar. Maybe limit myself to one pitcher of beer per outing? It's barely Monday and I have already spent way too much of my paycheck that I got on Friday. But to be fair, some of that went to bills and setting aside rent money for my mom. A lot more of my money has been going towards gas too... I'm sure it doesn't help that I drive to Beaverton most nights to see Pete. :-/ As much as it kills me to say it, I know I need to maybe stay home a bit more. I am also neglecting other things that I know I need to do. Or maybe... maybe we can start meeting somewhere halfway to hang out? I don't care what we do as long as I get to see him (and not spend much money). This will be easier once the weather is more consistently nice because then we can just hang out in a park or on a playground and chill. I don't want to have to give up spending time with Pete... must find better ways to budget money! Perhaps I should start bringing lunches to work again... and really, I need to stop drinking so much. Limits, Heather, it's all about limits.

I love how when all the other pieces of my life come together so beautifully, there is always something major lurking in the shadows to bring me back to a stressful reality. *sarcasm*

Must get taxes done... and must not buy pretty things with it this year. Must pay off some bills.

:big hugs:

The stressful lurkers tend to be beautiful learning experiences in disguise. You're a brilliant and gorgeous woman, Heather. I know things will work out. Even the struggles bring something wholesome to your life experience. Trade in that beer money for gas... or start bringing a flask when you go to a bar. ;)

Don't let money get to you too much(god I know it's hard). Budgeting is key. I'm in the same boat. I had $5 to my name for nearly a week and no food in my fridge, all due to poor budgeting. Haha.

I'm so happy things are well with you and Pete. <3

Take care!~

Budgeting money can be hard when your used to spending it. I'v ran into the same delema myself, and cutting back on things I'm used to getting. Its hard but if your somewhere and get Tempted to buy something just ask yourself... Do I really need it? or Can I get by without it?
