The other day after the ice and snow went off of the road, I ventured to our little dollar store in our little town. Trying to keep most of my busyinss local more and more as stuff gets higher and higher.
Ok, so I found a calendar I liked very well for 1$
It's Americana and it's cute.
Since I'm on a budget, I take a calculator with me to give me a ballpark figure of what I am spending.
I am determined to find a way to eat on the cheap, so to speak. another 2$
And of course, we always need lightbulbs in January.
don't we?? don't you?
This set of silverware I found at Target...isn't it the cutest?
Hubby never liked this kind, so I gave my old set to one of my daughters and installed the new set in my odds and ends dodaddy. I found this unusual sugar and creamer at a local junk store.
This is my sweet friend...her name was Linda.
She had two sons and I think it was 3 grandsons.
She had a million dollar smile, and she was from Kentucky, you could it by her soft southern drawl.
She was single, but she had a good job. She got along right well by herself.
And all she could do was worry!
She didn't know how she was gonna make it on Social Security alone.
Soon her health began to fail, She took Fen Fen for a year or so...and she suffered the consequences.
She was in so much pain that when her appendix ruptured she was too late going to the ER.
Five surgeries later she lost her battle with peritonitis.
She was 54 years old when she died. Social Security was'nt even in sight.
That is the value in living in the now!
I wish I could do that, too.
Don't forget to seize the day, friends.
That's all we got!
And thats the way it is
at my house tonite.
