In Your Monitor

Updated: Feb 17

So here we are, knock knock, in your monitor!

It seems many of us, after mastered the "technology" of social distancing through means of virtual meetings, virtual meals, or multi screened family gatherings, and social chats are experiencing some form of COVID virtual "technology" fatigue.

And if our email boxes weren't full before they are overflowing for many of us now. If you have opened this email at all, I THANK YOU!

I might be aging myself, but ever since we started our COVID "Zoom" meetings, my mind immediately does a 70's flashback to this zoom:


I don't know that I am alone in seeing the appeal of bopping up and down zooming around a room with airplane arms. I find something rejuvenating about the idea as we continue to balance out these heavy emotional times.

In the best of times it can feel uncomfortable talking about such personal issues as one's finances. Having to social distance and do so deserves a pat on the back. I applaud those of you that have taken on your financial health at a time we are so focused on our physical health and balancing a new lifestyle.

With this Pandemic, we hear of brain fog, anxiety, depression, loss of time, not knowing the day of the week, masks, distancing, the list goes on. It seems we no sooner start to get used to a new norm, and it changes. Thoughts of planning things out six months to a year seem to have shifted to a month or two. As we near the school year and look at our current budgets, we might be asking ourselves, "Is the expense of a backpack fall into a "necessity" if our children are only walking to the dining room table to go to school?"

As the freezer starts to empty, do I restock in case we go into a stay at home again? How's that toilet paper? Should we plan on getting those canning jars for all the tomatoes we grew this summer? How do I adjust my spending or credit card payments to meet my income challenges going into winter?

So many things have changed and are continually changing. We want you let you know you are not alone. We are here to help lighten the load. We are continually open Monday through Thursday. We do take evening appointments when available, and I am always happy to answer any questions via email. We offer intro sessions, and we are here for you; however long you need us. Via phone, email, or we can "Zoom" airplane arms or not.

Because it's never JUST about Money....
