Saturday Swim Fun

Since I am cutting back on frivolous spending to dig myself out of debt, I am focusing on free fun things. My aunt and uncle have a pool and gave me permission to use their pool while they are away. Yesterday after work, I headed to the pool and had fun splish-splashing and cannonballing into the water. It was two hours of pure bliss.



I couldn’t help myself: shameless pool selfies! Wraith will be three months in sixteen days and I am still so in love with him. I will be in love with him for the rest of my life. These photos will go into my Happiness Box.

I have different things planned for my 30s, one of them being personal finance and financial health. I want to dig myself out of the debt I created in my 20s and as I do so, I want to spend some time talking about how good financial health affects not only your happiness, but your overall well-being. Keeping a budget allows for joy and being in good financial shape allows you to keep healthy in all other aspects of your life too.  ALSO, you don’t need to live the “good life” to have fun either. You can have a lot of fun doing things on the cheap without splurging. I can’t wait to explore more of these subjects further and share them with you.

  1. Hi, Jessica Marie!

    It was nice of your aunt and uncle to invite you to use their pool while they were away. It’s a pretty pool with a nice large deck around it. It looks like the weather was favorable and you had loads of fun. I hope you remembered to apply sunblock to The Wraith. If you saw him blushing after a day in the sun it wouldn’t be a good sign.

    Turning age 30 enabled you to turn a page and start a new chapter of your life. I agree that your health, happiness, and well being can be adversely affected by personal problems such as chronic debt. You are wise for making adjustments and adopting a budget. Sticking to it will give you a sense of pride and accomplishment and enable you to put the mistakes of your twenties behind you. Future posts about fun activities that are either inexpensive or free of charge would be interesting to your readers.

    Enjoy your Sunday and the week ahead, dear friend JM!


    1. I did! I also went at 3:30, when the sun wasn’t as strong either. I made sure I applied extra to him.

      I hope so! I hope I don’t seem obsessed with money and finances, but maybe it’s something all young people should be aware of.
