One of those freezing days in NYC again. I swore no more NY winters! (I swear this every year and it's been 4 now!) I would take a vacation and go to the islands-I was planning a trip to Seychelles and Africa as a surprise for my guy, but he is trying to pay off his CC so we can buy a house in the country (PA). So being the weak and often overly generous creature that I am I gave him 11k to pay off the card on the condition that he cancels it. He did cancel it and he paid off another card too, so we are getting down to almost no cc debt! I hate credit cards! I have personally never owned one, although I used my fathers once, much to his chagrin, and it wasn't pretty. alas, I was 19 and innocent (somewhat) about the ways of finance. I wont admit how much I spent but I will say it was under 5k. Since then I haven't used anything but my debit card. If I don't have the cash for it right now, I am not supposed to have whatever it is that I want, yet. (the emphasis on YET) It looks like I will be freezing for another month till I can make some more vacation money. God it all goes so fast!
Kaiser and Simone, my two Great Danes, are extremely bored today-it's been too cold to go to the park for more than 15 minutes at a time. too cold for me that is- they have snazzy new jackets and don't seem to mind the weather. I hear it is supposed to snow...If it's going to be this cold it should at least ice or snow a foot or something. That way, everything is shut down and there is no excuse to go outside! (apart from walking the monsters of course) enough about the weather and debt!
I wrote 3 pages of a new short last night. I have NO idea where it is going to go, but the characters are nicely flawed and I think I may have something with this one, lets see if I can finish it (shouldn't be a problem) the real problem is cleaning it up and submitting it-yikes! double yikes! I have a small collection of dusty never been looked at by anyone other than teachers and f and f. They all say SUBMIT, SUBMIT! I am assuming they are speaking about my writing...hmm..... something to ponder. back to the blinking cursor!
