I think I've got the split

Not that I could explain it to anyone. But I seem to know where to go when I want to post. Of course, I'm probably deluding myself that some posts belong here and some belong on LJ. *shrugs* It's only been 24 hrs.

Feeling a tad less bitchy now. Tad less. There's something still tweaked in my head, which means I'm on a low end mood swing. Which also means I should crawl into a corner and just stay there, reminding people not to poke me unless they've got a really long stick and I can't reach them with my claws. BUT... that's not being a good mom or wife, so it's just about time to leave the retreat and head back downstairs.

I got the checking account balanced, which is good. When FAC transitioned it's retail business out to clear through another firm, my account went with it. I haven't balanced since then because things didn't go well for me (I got caught up in a miscoded handful of accounts which took a bit longer to transfer). So I just did what I always do with difficult things and avoided the whole topic.

Which means it hit a desperate state. I started balancing earlier this week. Figured out what I could and couldn't do and what information I needed. Got that information after getting as far as I could. And today I finished and it all balances. Through the end of the last statement, and close enough for the rest of it. *phew* Tonight I write all the outstanding checks. But that can wait.

Bizarrely enough, balancing the checkbook has had a settling effect on my head. I'm not really in a good zone for dealing with frustration, but I'm a bit more controlled. I can handle the kids now. Both of whom are severely clingy. I can handle that I've still got piles of laundry to do and a kitchen that looks like a pit.

I wanna bake tonight. I've gotta clean the kitchen so I can do so. I need that catharsis of creating baked goods for people (other than me!) to eat. Dark chocolate fudge is a definite on the list. Hopefully I've got enough ingredients for a double batch.

Resisting temptation is easier when you think you'll probably get
another chance later on.
