Sometimes I think I am wishing my life away just waiting for weekends. Another week is more than half way over. Looking at my mortgage plan, I can hopefully be mortgage free in 2 years. 2 years seems like a long time because I want to be free NOW. On the other hand, 2 years is a very short time compared to the 26 more years it would have taken to pay off my mortgage the "normal" way. I'll be able to spend those extra 24 years doing things I enjoy.
3 lunches down this week, only 2 to go. There's a birthday on Friday so we are all going out to eat. Hopefully I can find something cheap on the menu or something to take home for a later meal (or both if I'm lucky). I don't feel like cooking tonight so I will either have my last frozen dinner for lunch tomorrow or the tuna lunch kit that a co-worker gave to me. I'll cook something for next week in the crock pot this weekend. Maybe I'll actually try out my bread machine. The weather is supposed to be in the 80's finally. I don't like to cook when it's 96 degrees.
The Fall TV shows are finally starting. My favorites are Chuck and The Office. Since the writer's strike last December it feels like there haven't been any new shows for a year. I've almost forgotten what it's like to look forward to TV. Now that I am using my digital TV converter I have 6 public TV channels but 2 of them are identical to 2 others sometimes. It's strange. I like the Create channel though. There is usually a cooking or craft show to watch. The digital reception is annoying. There's always one channel that won't come in and it doesn't just get fuzzy like the analog stations, it gets little blocks on the screen and then goes black and says no signal. I'd rather have it go fuzzy, at least I could hear the dialog. Oh well, that's progress I guess.
