• Financial Boredom/Apathy

    by  • Tagged: 

    If you haven’t noticed, it’s been a little quiet at Make Love, Not Debt headquarters. The reason: we’ve hit a financial lull. Compared to our finances 2 years ago, things are going pretty swimmingly around here. And that’s a problem.

    With the weather warming up, our new budgeting scheme, and wedding planning all going on, we find that having the same enthusiasm for finances is tough.

    Add to that my general malaise about finances – I’ve often thought that dealing with finances are more like a necessary evil, much like cleaning toilets or having to be nice to my future mother-in-law. Finances are boring. Seriously. Like, I’d-rather-be-stabbed-in-the-eye boring. The more I could automate our finances, make them become more of a background fixture to our lives, the happier I would become. Out of sight, out of mind?

    But it isn’t that simple. Money does make the world go ’round. We can’t spend willy nilly on anything and everything, lest we face the dire consequences.

    Maybe this is a turning point – instead of thinking about money and how it affects us, maybe we should be thinking more of the role money plays in our lives.

    What the hell does that even mean?

    Ick, I’m rambling on the internet. Hey, this is a blog, after all.

    (normal financial blogging to resume shortly…)
