Back to Work!!


It has been two weeks since my computer tore up. I have it back temporarily at the moment and am able to work. In fact I began the process of lowering bills already. My mother has had it for two weeks and finally said it was working well enough that I can use it. It is humming but it connects to the Internet and it stays on. I have to make up for the last two weeks and if I am online I find myself easily distracted so I decided to work offline while I catch up.

I even lowered my Internet bill for the time being. My mother purchased some groceries and gave me some money since I had been out of work and did not have a payday this past week. I put the groceries away figuring that we could make them last a few weeks and then I began the budgeting of the money that she gave me. First thing was to get my television out of the pawnshop, $62.50. (My youngest had been promised the Peanut Festival on Special Citizens Day)

She had a blast dragging me on rides that made me feel older than I realized I was as I got dizzy every time. Her father (my soon to be ex) watched and laughed the whole time. She ended up with a $5 frog when the man held the balloon so that she could just pop it with the dart. Somehow I we missed lunch because I was tired and dizzy causing us to sit down and lose track of time. Oh well.

I also invested in a portable Internet device and purchased one GB of Internet for $20. I figure that I can use that much easily and get a lot of work posted while I wait for mother to pick my computer back up to finish fixing it. My keys are sticking but I saw a keyboard for $10 that would be easier for me to use than the flat keyboard that is on it. There is an option for $10 Internet that would have me spending approximately $40 a month, $50 a month would get me unlimited access but I can not afford that right now. I spent more than I should on the device but I had to get back to work.

It took almost $60 to fill the tank on my Rodeo to get us back and forth for hopefully the next two weeks. I changed my phone to 20 cents a minute and placed $10 on it to use in an emergency. It was better than leaving it off I just had to disable incoming text messages to make it work. I don’t have to pay the bill again until the 8th of February so let’s hope I can stretch that $10 out some to make it easier for a while.

I refigured my basic expenses and I have a better understanding of what I need to do. That is a post for another day. I have to get back to work ASAP. I’m running back and forth from the housework to the keyboard to make sure I don’t get bored sitting in one spot.It has been two weeks since my computer tore up.
