Okay, January was stellar! I'll report soon on how great it's been. Right now, I want to address living slim. We're trying to be lean in several ways-one is financially as you know. We're seeing the fruit of that hard work-we paid our taxes (for 3 lots in town, 2 with structures, and our 15 acres in the next county) without borrowing! Whoo hoo! We often borrowed from a family member until our income tax refund would come in--why don't they do refunds before property taxes, it would save us poor people SO much grief! Anyway, while shopping for groceries each week, I have to ask myself if I REALLY need what I'm putting in my cart. We saved a lot in January and I've been reminded that we don't need near as much as we think we do.
However, there's on thing I can hardly live without a minute longer. Our right click button on our mouse bit the dust about a week ago. I can't cut and paste! How much I've taken the poor right button for granted all these years. It's kind of a third wheel, ya know. It gets the least amount of attention. I mean, the roller ball is very important, as is the little dial thingy on the top of the mouse. We couldn't live without the left button, I'm sure...but I won't take the right button, then underdog, for granted anymore.
I just wish I would have remembered the stupid underdog died last night when I was at Wal-Mart. I totally forgot to pick up a new mouse. Ughhh.
