Gaming to Avoid My Stressors

It’s been another super chill and uneventful day and I’m loving it. I’m a little sad that I can’t just keep doing nothing tomorrow, actually. I’ve been playing The Sims 4 pretty much all day long so I really haven’t done anything noteworthy. The weather has been grey and chilly, so even the cats spent the day indoors.

Yesterday I had a look at finances and got a bit stressed out with how much we’re having to pinch pennies these days. Next month we’re driving a lot to visit people and I wanted to figure out how much we should budget for gas, and it looks like all of our expendable money is going straight into the gas tank!! What’s worse is that I looked at train tickets and the price just for one person is insanely high. I hate being stressed about money. It brings up a lot of insecurities and trauma for me.

Tomorrow I’m meeting up with a friend and we’re going on a walk/hike with her sister’s dog! I’m looking forward to it although I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t nervous about the prospect of having to hike. Charging up my camera battery tonight so hopefully I’ll get some nice pictures out of it!
