I was so determined to write 1000 points worth of posts yesterday, but it didn’t happen. I was about 350 points short. That’s kind of a lot, and I’m bummed that, even on my first day, I’m behind on my goals. I really want to redeem my points by this Saturday at the latest.
My husband came home while I was writing, and I stopped to make dinner. Then, I was just too exhausted to get back to the keyboard. I think I even feel asleep before 9 pm. That’s pretty bad. But my daughter had been asleep since around 7pm, so it’s not like I had any real responsibilities to be attending to.
We had some awesome burritos, though, for dinner last night. I made Spanish rice, carne asada with a citrus marinade, and grated some cheese. We also added a little sour cream and some lettuce to our burritos, and they tasted so yummy! I was glad to get some good food in my belly. I felt like everything I had eaten yesterday left me with a sour taste in my mouth.
So, I slacked off, and now I’m regretting it. I really want to redeem by Saturday. If the payments are still working the same as when I was last on here, I should get the money into my bank account by Tuesday at the latest, which should be perfect. My cousin is coming to visit, and I’m pretty sure she’ll want to eat and stuff, you know?
I need to just focus and make myself work. I know I’m feeling sick, but it has to happen. Or we won’t make it. Being a stay-at-home mom for me is a sacrifice in more than one way. But my little one is too important. So, until I go back to work, I have to figure out ways to make money. But, I’m determined. I can get through this time in my life, and I will be so glad that I put in this effort.
