heading for bed

My cable was cut off today. I didn't get the bill paid. I haven't been so out of funds in a very long time. I hope to creep back to normalcy over the next few weeks.

Mary and I, both in the same boat, decided to spend money we didn't have. Use our debit cards to take money out of our accounts that is already spoken for in checks that haven't cleared. We went to the dollar store, bought a few things, shared a sandwich at Schlotzsky's, had coffee at Uptown Espresso. Partners in crime. Nothing tastes so delicious as stolen goods.

Did I say that?? Yes.

Since she left for her home, I've been snuggling on the couch with Simba, reading Burston's book. Thinking, wondering, wanting more of the personal Laing, however supportive this book is.

I have given the stray cat a name - Stretch - which is one more step toward outright admitting he's my cat now. I will make an appointment for him at the vet's for Thursday or Friday, get him checked, chipped, fixed where needed. In the meantime I continue to feed him on the back porch and invite him inside for brief moments.

Someone stole one of my bird feeders. What the hell?

We cancelled our cable as we were being forcibly upgraded - i.e. about to be charged more for more channels we wouldn't watch. I wish it were possible to pay less for two good channels instead of nore for 90 mostly bad oes.

We cut our DirecTV channels in half. I agree: most of the movies are crap. We agreed to spend the money on buying DVD movies we can watch more than once. Or rent movies. We hardly ever go to the movies since it is so expensive for two if we want popcorn which I always want.

Re: Cable
Although I agree with you both on the value of these channels, I did reconnect the umbilical cord, and I am snug in my little televised womb again.

Re: Cable
I agree about the films on TV. As for the other channels we hardly watched anything except 24hour news. This had its drawbacks as news should not be entertainment but if you take it too seriously it means you don't have a life!
