The state of me

Anxious about money, and coping by concentrating on other stuff.

Monday i finished up the chess tournament entry for this weekend, including much phone calling during work.

I've kept up with the organization that I inflicted on the kitchen table, and with sorting the mail. I'm slowly encroaching on the opening mail bit of bookkeeping, and updating quicken is around the corner. Meanwhile money is still icky. My paycheck is providing my spending money, which includes the boys' allowance, and occasionally enough extra to deposit. Flar is still waiting on several clients to pay on work already completed. Don't let your children grow up to be self-employed. ;p

Ran laundry yesterday. All is dry and sorted; the towels are still in the dryer and I haven't folded anything.

I'm keeping up with the daily paper, but my online time has been such that I've at least 7 days of daily comics waiting to be read in my email.

And dishes are calling out to me again, but the coupons are under control, and I made a massive grocery run yesterday that should cover us through Thanksgiving.

Plotted Tday with Brody's wife. It's at their house this year: I'm bringing sweet potatoes, cranberry fluff and mincemeat pie. I'm so getting off easy. ;)

The kids both overslept this morning. Critter has a new clock radio, and he hit the "off" instead of the "snooze." Tigger says he didn't wake up because he didn't dream. That, if he dreams, he can wake up whenever he wants.

I wonder if Tigger will decide to become a psychologist. Right now he wants to be a cook when he grows up.

    While sleeping under a ceiling fan may not cause death, it can contribute to a dry air morning sore throat. I put up with the sore throat because…

    Failure comes only to one unwilling to adapt and keep looking forward. My marriage ended last year. I’m not a failure at relationships; I’m now…
