Hi, DH here! I hope everyone is having a good March so far! My start has been a little bumpy, but a start nonetheless. This month is hard for me, rooted in memories that seem like a lifetime ago. Objectively, everything is going really well: Just got promoted to Technical Lead, all of our kids are doing fine (especially the baby), and Julia and I are communicating, even though we're not having sex.
But I'm tired. And cold. And broke.
And there doesn't seem like there is an end in sight.
Well, I guess the weather will warm up eventually, but in our area that's never guaranteed to be beach weather. For me, the real issue is feeling like I have nothing to look forward to. Julia and I have talked about going to Hawaii for Christmas this year, but we've already gone to Kawaii broke, which wasn't very fun. At 52, I feel like my best years for making (and saving) money are long behind ne. I recently found Forex trading, only to learn that copy trading (following another investor and copying his actual trades into your account) is illegal in the United States. Yay. I don't have enough time in my life to become an actual trader, so it seems likely that I won't be doing this.
Why would I want to? Because we are paying close to 1,000 a month for our school loans. Trading? I wish. Although I have to admit, my thoughts on making (taking) money run a little dark.
Oh well. No sex in this post heh, maybe the next. 😊
