What do you want first,
the good or the bad?
Let's do the good first.
I need to,
and it's my blog.
This month I paid a QUINTUPLE car payment.
That was satisfying.
There are no credit card balances.
That was VERY satisfying.
Now, the bad news.
This will ultimately be good news
but last night I was tossing and turning,
overwhelmed with fear and doom and gloom.
Because Rob and I met with a Financial Advisor.
For over two hours.
Just for a consultation!
By the time we were done just consulting
I was picturing us unable to save up enough to put our kids through college,
destitute and living on the streets at 65,
fighting over a can of Alpo.
Obviously this isn't how it will be
but Lord Almighty do I feel overwhelmed right now.
Terms (that he hasn't even mentioned yet)
like Roth IRA's, mutual funds, 529s and index funds
swirl through my head
and the ideas that I might make a mistake
and that I just can't do it!!
make me want to sit in the corner
rock back and forth
and suck my thumb
while humming Twinkle Twinkle Little Star.
I know we'll get there,
but today I just feel SCARED.
