Jinxing Thoughts

The power of thinking is.....powerful.

Whenever you have a dedicated goal, it seems like something always gets in the way to some degree, especially when you're in serious saving mode like we have been. Last year we had to unexpectedly get a new lawn mower and garage door just a couple weeks apart and all in the middle of doing boat projects too. Let's just say that our savings took a hit that month, but since then things have been progressing pretty smoothly.

It must have gone to my head because I made the mistake of thinking to myself a few weeks ago (as in, NOT uttering a syllable to anyone), that it had been a while since we'd been hit with a substantial unplanned expense. I should have known better. Not a week later Ron's truck needs new brakes and shocks, my car has a leaky tire and both our cars need multiple headlights replaced. When it rains it pours but I guess I can't complain too much, all this was still cheaper than either the lawn mower or garage door and we weren't in the middle of purchasing any boat equipment or projects. 

Maybe this is a sign that we need to get crackin' on our winter projects and give ourselves something else to do (and write about). And if my thoughts are really that powerful, I've got a lot of better things to think about....like winning the next drawing for that free Tower paddle board!
