I’m going to turn over a new leaf.
I was thinking this morning that I will stop being so sad. It really isn’t doing anything to improve my situation.
Say my life really does turn out shitty. Being sad before that happens won’t help.
And if my life gets great then I wasted a bunch of time.
One of the things I’ve been sad about was the prospect of being poor.
However things that I’ve already done to cut costs that I thought would be upsetting turned out to be a big nothing.
I cancelled 2 phones. So what.
I stopped buying clothes (except for that red sweater that I returned). If I ever get around to cleaning out my drawers I’m sure I’ll find stuff I haven’t worn in years.
I stopped using paper plates and Bounty. I lived.
I have been buying cheaper toilet paper. No big deal.
Besides dave was the one who always wanted soft toilet paper. I guess he thought it was too hard to stuff up the toilet with the cheap kind.
I’m going to be a happy fish from now on.
Yep. I’m looking at the bright side.
For example my ipad is acting up but am I dwelling on that? Even though I feel like flinging myself against the wall screaming. Nope, I won’t give it a thought.
Instead I’ll be all happy because Julie and Violet are coming for dinner.
I am burning the roast chicken beyond recognition so they’ll feel at home. The kid might complain a bit but I know Julie will love it.
I cook just like my mother and her mother, my sister.
I just put the meat thermometer into the chicken and it stopped at 200. Another 20 minutes and it should be just right.
I like my food to be black, just like my clothes.
