First, Happy Birthday to my dear Orrin… he’s getting old. (But Grace stays young and hot… who knew.) And somehow I’m still older than he is. So what does that make me? Let’s not contemplate those sorts of things. 😛
It’s funny how everything costs money. I know, it’s a dumb statement to make because that’s how it is. But hey, I’m just being real about it. EVERYTHING costs money! And since I’ve been in this money bind, its had a hold on me big time. I’m not extravagant with stuff, and haven’t been for some time. Heck, even the cell phone I got was a bargain at $80. And its brand new. A vast difference from the prior chick that spent $400 on a phone because it was the hottest new thing.
I’m looking forward now, and that has changed my perspective on spending drastically. I’m looking to put money into retirement accounts, plan for the future, because truth be told, it’s hard to plan for the unknown. But I’m doing the best that I can and that’s all you can really do when it comes down to it.
I’m rather happy and sometimes it doesn’t take much to be that way. Well, a little extra cash wouldn’t hurt.. 😛
