Dollars and Sense

I don't like money. It seems like it doesn't matter how much money you have, its never enough. You always want more, to buy more things, to spend more money. But I mostly don't like it probably because I don't have any. :) Money stresses me out and that feeling of not having money to pay your bills, or how terrible it feels when a surprise comes up and you just don't have enough. Ugh, its horrible. Also horrible is just barely having enough for bills, and thats it. I don't want to live paycheck to paycheck. I want to be able to save up for stuff, for things we need, for vacations, for Christmas for goodness sakes. I just don't like looking at the bank account and seeing the numbers go down, I want to see them go UP! :)

So with all this going on in my head, and the prospect of Dave coming home and not having a job, I've been feeling a little stressed about money. Then I stay up late at night thinking of things I can do to make money. I would really love it if somehow I could like write a book and be rich and famous from it. But I know it doesn't work that way, you know, unless I write the next 'Twilight'! haha Something I've been thinking about a lot lately is photography. I really love photography and I would love to start taking pictures for family and friends and whoever will pay me. :D So if you live in Washington and want some family pictures, pictures of your kids, whatever, let me know! Or if you have a get rich quick for sure plan, let me know about that too! haha

Do you stress about money? What do you do to make you feel better?

3 awesomeness!...and attractiveness!:

I totally stress about money! I usually do the same thing you did. I come up with some scheme to get rich and even if I don't follow through (I never do) it makes me feel better. I'm always looking for ways to earn a little money, I just haven't found the right thing yet. You should go for the photography! Your pictures are amazing!
