Throat … is … so … sore. It's pretty rare for me to get sick, and really hard for me to let go of the reins so I can rest. But I'm following Dr. Mike's orders and calling it a night early.
Today I Gave: What I hope was helpful advice to some friends about budgeting, and specifically budgeting for Christmas. Don't worry, it wasn't unsolicited advice. They specifically asked me to meet with them and go over some things. Mike and I are nowhere near having this stuff all figured out, but I feel like we've come a long way. When someone asks, I'm more than happy to share.
Today I Received: Two things stand out today. First, the same friends who asked for my advice treated me to Starbucks. Speaking of budgeting, Starbucks is often the downfall of my personal budget, so being on the receiving end of a freebie is always appreciated. And now this evening Mike is taking over so I can rest. No bedtime stories for this scratchy throat. It's so nice to know that I have a partner that is always there to step in when I need extra help.
And now it's time for bed. Doctor's orders.
