Lately CBG and I have been talking a lot about our finances. Specifically, how we haven’t really had a plan, and how that lack of plan has been negatively affecting us. No, we’re not on the brink of bankruptcy (or even close), but truthfully we’re not nearly as financially stable as two people our age should be. Granted, there are factors working against us — like both of us having to completely re-build after our previous marriages, but I think that we’ve both been hanging on, waiting for some kind of “magic answer” that was going to solve our money issues.
Guess what? There is no magic answer. Duh.
However, the answer is simple, really. We just need to clean up our act, behave like adults, and basically start “acting our wage.” Which has inspired me to begin a whole new blog project, talking about money and finances and all that fun stuff that most of us don’t really want to talk about. It’s all still taking shape at the moment, but if you want to stop by and check things out, you can find us here:
