As monstrous as holiday prep can be, there’s something truly insidious about the procrastination that creeps up on us afterward.

Just before Thanksgiving I start to feel it. At first, it’s just a dark, looming cloud on the horizon. Pretty soon, everywhere I turn, Christmas songs play and perky sales people are in my face. Plans are made for holiday meals with the family. The weight of the “happiest time of the year” hits and all I want is to crawl into bed.
…can go right to hell without warning.
I planned to tell ya’ll about the extra money I paid on our credit cards this week, but life stomped on my sandcastle.
In order to start living a frugal life, I figured I needed to know where our money normally goes. Kinda obvious, right? Well, track your expenses for the past year. I dare you. It’s an eye-popping experience.
Yes, goblins and vamps, Halloween is here again. Since it’s my favorite time of the year, what better way to celebrate than with a party?
We live in a world that takes absolute delight in tearing people down. For many, it’s a way of life.
