Time to hunker down

June 17th, 2010 at 08:02 pm

I surfed the web this morning, looking at housing prices in the area I would like to eventually move to. It made me realize that I need to be a more vigilant saver, if I ever want to accomplish this goal.

I've had some fun these past few months, but now it's time to get serious.

Soooo -- today, even though I was sorely tempted to get a snack from the food court, I resisted.

I'd like to walk to work, but it's a 40-minute walk and I don't think my still-healing ankle can take that twice a day.

I've got plenty of clothes now, so I can lay off the shopping trips for a while.

And, if the traffic at the antique booth doesn't pick up this summer, I'm going to close it down. Maybe, if I do, I can sell the stock on eBay.

I'm still going to feed the feral cats, but maybe not put out as much. In the summer, they should have plentiful food sources.

I don't know what else, but I hope other ideas will pop into my head!

    I live in DG and was wondering where you're thinking about eventually buying? I remember that you're presently in VP.

    how did your feral cats do this winter? I remember that you were concerned for the 2 and bought a heated house for them. Did those 2 guys make it?

    Momcents, I would like to move to the Evanston/Skokie area after I retire to be close to my kids.

    Gamecock, the cats did fine! I can't believe they made it through our brutal winter. One of the things I want to do this summer is build a better "house" for them, but I have to do it cheaply.
