Z is for Zero

Zero is how much the rent was this month. I had to pay a deposit but the first month's rent was free. I am rather happy about that since it reduced the amount of expenses for the month a good bit. It is also the amount that I am paying for the samples that I ordered.

I like to try new things and samples make it possible to do that without spending a dime. They even include coupons so that the purchase of the items is less. Zero is the amount that I pay for television because I use an antenna instead of subscribing to cable services. In a few months when I change the Internet provider (find one that services the area) I will be watching movies and shows that I cannot watch with the antenna.

Zero is the amount that I spent on furniture. It was all gifted to us. I have purchased very few items out of pocket for this move. I am blessed. Zero is actually a nice number after all.

Until next time may your life be filled with blessings and zeros.

Well, I'll be going now, I have nothing else to ramble about.

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.

Achiements and Goals

The last year I managed to meet my biggest goal, one that was long overdue and obsessively planned. I moved home from Arkansas and left the stupidity surrounding me behind. Now I am focusing on the next set of goals, and finding that I no longer no where anything is in relation to the objective that I am searching to achieve. Things change in four years but not that much.
There are still animals in my orbit, or rather animals have returned to my orbit since they aren't ours. We get visits from the cat that lives downstairs, who promptly makes himself at home each and every time. Theresa worries about how well he is cared for while he is in our new home visiting.

There were a lot of goals set during the last year and looking back the largest of them was achieved; now it's time to move onto the next set of goals and reevaluation of the ones that weren't achieved to determine if they are worth continuing toward or if they require altering. Planning for them was obsessive, an…
