I’ve got about a hundred posts today and, provided I can get my housework caught up (Do you have any idea how utterly counterproductive panic attacks are?  Seriously.  I got nothing done yesterday. Not even the dishes I started.), I plan to inundate you with them until my fingers fall off.  If I was intelligent, I’d save some for Thursday.  I don’t wanna.  But, thanks to the slow drip in my neighbor’s ceiling, I might not have a choice.  So much for twenty-four hours notice.

Master and I have been doing a lot of penny-pinching, lately.  It’s really not like us.  Really not like us.  We’re not well-off or even comfortable.  We live paycheck to paycheck and sometimes are counting change and taking back bottles to get through the week.  Sometimes we live on eggs, hot dogs and Ramen.  And we still manage to hemorrhage money.
