how much longer?

slowly but surely we are getting caught up with life. What really sucks is both S and I are instant gratification seekers. So, when the plan to cut back on everything and pay off our debt first came into play, we were both gung ho. Now, it's been two weeks, two whole weeks, yet it feels like nothing has happened.

Um maybe because nothing has happened, I know that's what you all are saying. And you are right. It's just that with the gratification affliction we suffer from, we were expecting instant results. This was a six to twelve month plan, how in the hell will we survive?

Books. That's how. I'm averaging two per week, while S, the lazy bum, is averaging about one. Never mind the fact that I'm home all day and he's at work, he should be able to read circles around me. What, with all his bragging of speed reading and all. I was expecting numerous daily trips to the library. But alas, he's been on the same novel since Sunday people.

Ahem, can you sense the insanity that is setting in?

I hear you on the instant gratification affliction! You will feel so much better when the plan is complete, though. What good books have you read? I'm in need of some suggestions!

I would love book recommendations, too! A good QUICK read!

We also suffer from instant gratification syndrome! We always think that a plan should follow through the next paycheck. It never works out that way.

Way to go on reading books though! I have been meaning to catch up on some books that were bought for me over the last couple years and haven't had the chance. Maybe it is because I spend all my free time on the internet...LOL! I should cut the internet off just to get things done I should be doing normally.

I hear you on the instant gratification thing, too. What I don't get is where you get the time to go to the library with two kids? Just let me know what the secret is!

I miss seeing you around woman. I am glad I have found my way to your blog. I am so sorry you are suffering and in extreme sense of pain...LOL It does suck not having everything you want at your fingertips. I am a big instant gratification person. I feel your pain. I hope the time passes quickly, I know once your debt is paid off you will feel awesome! Hang in there and give us book recommendations.

We miss you! But don't worry. I'll be extra bitchy to make for you being gone!
