Midweek Thoughts – Part 30


Welcome to the 30th edition of Midweek Thoughts. I know there’s been a fairly large gap since the 29th edition, but I’ve been busy elsewhere and unable to find the time to write. Okay, that’s not completely true. I probably could have found the time to write but chose not to because I like my bed and the warm blankets contained thereon, and therefore spent a significant amount of my free time napping.

As most of you probably know, last Friday, November 26th, was the day after Thanksgiving and what now has become known as Black Friday. While many folks waited in long lines at 4am or earlier, I was happily snoring in my aforementioned comfortable bed. It occurred to me as I browsed the ads and fliers for Black Friday sales that there was literally nothing on sale that I needed. Maybe they should put necessities on sale instead. If there had been a deal on toilet paper, laundry detergent, garbage bags, and light bulbs, I would’ve been all over that! (That reminds me, I’m almost out of laundry detergent.)

I’ve decided to try something crazy in the month of December. I will attempt to limit my food budget to a measly $100! I usually spend about $250 on groceries and probably another $75 at restaurants, so it will be interesting to see if I can actually pull it off. I’m happy to announce that as of 6:00 pm on December 1st, I have not yet gone over my budget.

So far so good. :P
