Back From The Brink

Who wants some?Up from the depths, 30 stories high, breathing fire, his head in the clouds. Godzilla, Godzilla, Godzilla!

Okay, that may be a slight over dramatization, maybe, but I'm feeling pretty good. It's nice to have a budget and, simultaneously, an income that supports it. Funny how that works, isn't it?

Though I was recently feeling overwhelmed with the concept of actually spending money, I think I'm good. Habits are habits, after all. On the weekends I'll end up cooking up a nice batch of chili, which is good enough to induce drooling at the mere mention of it, and most likely I'll fire up the steam engine, otherwise known as a rice cooker, and cook up a hefty batch of that also.

It's simply not possible to waste money on food if you are cooking and eating low priced, home cooked and healthy meals. Well, it might be possible, but you'd probably have to work at it.

Additionally, I'm now in the habit of making sandwiches for lunch. I know I could take a tupperware container full of chili or something, but I can't be bothered to drag dishes back and forth from work. When I take things to work it is generally a one way trip!

Anyway, it will soon be time to think about figuring out things such as debt repayment and so on. Not today though. For couple of weeks I'm just going to bask in the pleasure of not having to worry about so many things. It's been a while since I've had a chance to put that load down.
