The last part of March and all of April have been truly tough. My family has been undergoing some rough patches. We're slowly picking up the pieces.
With so many things going on in the world, it's really hard to keep up.
Gas prices have soared over here. With that in mind, so has everything else on the market. Food, clothes, supplies...you name it. Time, Money + my Life have been really tight.
There's so much I'd like to pursue but with these tough times, it's a bit difficult to keep afloat. So for the rest of this year, my family will be watching our pennies. I'm looking at this as a good thing. I wanted to take a few classes to enhance my creativity esp. w/ photography (Creativity Boot Camp), + some art + dance classes but it looks as though I will have to miss it this year. This is ok since that money will be put to good use on my lil' munchkins so they'll be able to enjoy their summer activities.
On a happier note, I still have my camera, my heart+soule. Somehow, I'm going to make the best out of this. I will venture out with my camera, heart+soule and find ways to grow creatively without spending too many pennies...how about you? any ideas on having a "funget" (word I made up, pronounced like funjet- fun+budget) summer?
