Sherry’s Ramblings for the Week
I POSTED THIS AND IT IS SO TRUE
Sometimes, it is all I want.
STILL REELING FROM THE $$$ OF IT ALL
All that spending for a new house!
Appliances, closets, paint, … goodness. What a money suck. None of it goes back into my net worth of course, because I am only taking the municipal assessment as my net worth marker just as a way to say: Yeah it’s worth this much, apparently.
Your house is really only worth what it can sell for on the market, like any other investment.
Even if the city says it is worth more, it really isn’t if it isn’t as desirable as other comparables on the market because if you want to sell, you’re going to sell it at MARKET PRICE.
AM SOMEWHAT PLEASED I SOLD CERTAIN STOCKS WHEN I DID
I was sobbing a bit when I liquidated my holdings to pay for my condo in cash, but when I checked my stock prices today, it turns out I sold it at the peak of the last few months.
I didn’t mean to, I was kind of mad the stocks boosted up the day after I sold, but now one of them has dropped back down again and the other ones I had refused to sell, have gone up.
GUIDE ON HOW TO SURVIVE A NEWBORN
I have friends who are about to give birth and my best piece of advice to them is:
Lots of stuff to do with one at home? LEAVE IT.
JUST LEAVE IT.
Dirty house, dirty dishes, food not cooked.. LEAVE IT AND NAP.
You’ll get around to it sooner or later.
Nap when your newborn naps, get in all the sleep you can get and need to function because if you kill yourself trying to stay awake and do it all 24/7, you will go insane.
How do I know this? I have done it. That’s how I know.
Make people bring over homemade food to eat, and feel free to pass out and snore while they troll through Buzzfeed and read articles out to you in a soothing bedtime lullaby.
Forget about vacuuming, cleaning, cooking, or doing anything with a newborn.
Just SLEEP. You need it and it is good for the whole household.
