Here is the situation with the cat. I want one. Tim wants one, but doesn't want one right now. He wants to wait until we start the school year to see if we still feel the same. I can tell already that he will make a good parent because this is a parenting strategy that was used on me when I was little. That is okay. I can wait, but there was this one little cat named Chubb that I really wanted. Tim assured me that there will be more cute cats when it is time for us to adopt one.
Today I bought hanging folders to update and organize our important papers (contracts, leases, policies, bills). Yesterday, I programmed all of our financial data into a money program. I do not know what has come over me that I care about this all of the sudden, but I think it is a good idea. First, I don't want to be one of those wives who have no idea what is going on in the family's financial matters. Secondly, I feel pretty "with it" when it comes to everything else in our household, except for this. Tim is good at it. I am not good at it. So, to better myself, I am going to work on understanding all the business part of our lives. I think this is a good goal. In order for me to be successful at understanding the finances, I have to have it all set up my way. No papers and loose folders all around the desk. I need it organized.
