I would be in great need of socialization. I work from home because I refuse to deal with the public anymore. My outings are few, limited to shopping trips, therapy and the laundromat. That's pretty much it and I have nothing to do most days but work because I no longer have the funds to indulge in the luxury of a day off. I haven't even took the kid to a fast food place since summer started because of a lack of funds.

Reasons Behind No Socialization
We haven't even been to the free parks in the area because of gas prices. As I write this the cheapest listing for gas I can see is $3.07. Paying by text will make that $3.04 a gallon. We currently only have therapy but that's enough with the income in the summer going down. I plan to start putting some money aside when school starts so I can go socialize during school and take the baby to socialize after school or rather on weekends when work and homework permit.

That's a lot of money for gas, but I am determined to socialize more. I feel as if the walls are closing in on me and days run together. I need to take my socialization away from social media if my daughter is ever going to learn to socialize. Actually she craves socialization which is both good and bad in a way. It's good for her and bad for me.

Where to go?

I don't particularly care for bars, but I could go out to eat. I don't like bars, and I don't have the money to spend in them which kind of helps to avoid them. I can't think of a single thing that I'd like to do other than go to a movie. I guess I'll start by popping some popcorn and watching a few at home at night while reruns and shows I don't watch are on.

Well, I'm off to figure out something to do for fun around here. It's been a long time since I had fun, I have to get back to it.

What do you do for fun? Does your budget allow room to leave the house for something other than the regular routine?

Twenty Years of Lessons

The last twenty years have taught me things that I never learned in school. The lessons make me wonder what the big deal about finish this degree or that vocational program is. So what have I learned?

Lessons of Assumptions and Beliefs

Recently I went over a few lessons from the last twenty years. Today I have decided to exam a few of them. I have trouble focusing so having the lessons to look back on is a good way to focus my energy right now. Let's begin.......

Working it out

I was attempting to figure out yet another crisis when I determined the entire thing was basically in my head. The idea of being able to work from home again was one I had all but given up on until I determined that it was and is the only way to ensure that I achieve everything I need to achieve in a given day. I found help to renter this world from a friend.
