Oh Yea - The Blog
Hi - Still alive. It's been a while I know.
I got a little bummed that I was dead on with the amount of readers I had comment during de-lurking week (8). That means that there are 8 friendly people out there who come to my site to read about my little life. Thanks to those 8 people - I really do appreciate you stopping by. It's just that - well ... it's almost been a year since I started this blog and really I thought I'd maybe break into double digits one of these days.
Then I see all of your lovely blogs with the 182 comments or 68 on a regular normal old day and I get green with envy. Which brings me to wonder about why one writes a blog anyway? Is it so you feel special that people care enough to read it? Or is my old need for popularity rearing its head from high school. I was a popular girl - I wonder when I'm gonna get over that.
In other news - I went to Vegas at the beginning of the week. Lost a lot of beans. that didn't feel so nice. I have a balance of $0 in my account now with a substantial credit card bill coming my way in a few weeks ($320). Let's just see how creative I can get for meals/groceries in the week till payday. Yea - not smart of me, but it's a problem I'm very aware of and I have convinced myself that it's ok because I only gamble like that in vegas and never in the state that I live. PLUS - you should have seen me when I was a dealer making tons o' dough. Losing 1200 was like sneezing. Then again winning 1200 was like sneezing too.
The days are blurring together for the rest of the winter as they tend to do here in the cold northern states. I'm hoping that a cruise maybe Feb/March/April will break up the monotony of it all. I'm also hoping that a tax return will make that cruise possible.
I'm also wondering how in the hell I'm going to manage to make 50K a year by the time I'm 30 when I'm only 3 1/2 years away. pshaw
