Also known as pissing off your family from beyond the grave
I’m so sorry I’ve been neglecting you! For those of you in the know, fiscal years turn over July 1st and it just gets crazy busy for us financial wizards!
Anyway, a project for you during your long holiday weekend: make a vision board and hang it in a prominent place in your home where you will see it frequently to keep you motivated when I can’t be there, reminding you to keep working towards your hopes and dreams.
For the non-creative types, I made one for you this morning. You are free to print, share, and copy as you wish.
Sorry, sorry I will get back to these soon, but I excel only at working on many things and nothing all at once. I assume everyone is sleepy and full of fried turkey anyway.
Second Verse, same as the first:
Henry VIII was born today in 1457. Flemish painter Sir Peter Paul Rubens was born on June 28, 1577. Violinist Stefi Geyer was born in Budapest on June 28, 1888. Heir presumptive Archduke Franz Ferdinand was assassinated today in 1914, igniting factor of World War I. Coincidentally, the Treaty of Versailles was signed exactly five years later, officially calling an end to the war.
As you get ready to settle into your weekend, I want you to take some time for menu planning for next week. I know take-out is quick and convenient but with oversized portions and unknown ingredients, it’s not so great for your wallet or your waistline!
Try to bring lunch from home 4 out of 5 days next week. With some grocery store initiative and a little bit of Sunday prep, you can do this!
Avoid the pre-packaged items, and focus on simple, nutrient-rich whole foods. It doesn’t have to be hum-drum! With drive-up, drop-off, and on-the-fly grocery services, the ideas for dressing up your meals are endless!
For example, you can get a whole fried turkey mailed directly to you for a little more than $100!
If you are more of a DIY’er, you could also just buy a whole turkey at the grocery store, and purchase one of these bad boys this weekend, and boom! You’ve got meals for the entire week!
Okay, now we’ve got food covered for the week, I also want to remind you to stop reaching for those sugar-sweetened (or even worse the artificially-sweetened!) beverages. Those should have no place in anyone’s diet.
But, I get it, water gets boring. Fortunately for you, there is a multitude of options to have kegs of beer delivered right to your door!
If you start consuming your fermented drinks by the barrel, there are deep savings to be made! According to one source that I completely did not verify or make any sort of effort to confirm, the average beer drinker can save 40–60% by buying kegs instead of cans or bottles! You can recoup the cost of a kegerator in as little as ten barrels! What is that, like less than 6 months??? Act now, and don’t forget to invest those savings into your #crypto account!
Then pour yourself another draft, sit back, and stay loose!
You probably remember the late 1980’s when Joan Collins tried to teach us we needed shoulder pads to look and feel tough. But there’s a better, sleeker, modern way to tell the world not to fuck with you, balance out your shoulder- to-hip ratio, and channel your inner Audrey Hepburn!
Tell the world you’re classy and packing, and that you won’t be meeting them for breakfast. Breakfast is for weaklings.
Keep a food journal and write down what other people eat. Remind them later when they open a bag of chips that they already ate three cookies.
