Calvin: Faces

Why is it..

that money runs out like water when it hits the bank? The kids SS checks hit today, so I wrote out the bills, and the money I had this AM is gone, gone, gone. It reminded me of a conversation I had Saturday (I can't remember the whole thing..there was a kilt involved. Need I say more? I was...distracted.) Something was said about my job, to which I responded that I *needed* to work so I could live in the manner to which I had become accustomed. I was asked "what manner?"..and responded (quite truthfully!) "abject poverty!". Very sad to see my off-the-cuff remark hit so close to home. *sigh*

The good news? My Kubota will be paid off in 12 months! Maybe a little sooner - I'm trying to decide if I want to use my Christmas bonus (provided we *get* bonuses this year) to pay it off or not. No wonder Kubota keeps calling me trying to get me to upgrade. No thanks - I loves my little tractor with the front-end loader, the bush hog and the auger. Even if it *does* have a flat right now. *Every* girl needs her own Tractor! *eg*

It's just me in the office today - co-worker's mother is having surgery to remove a cancerous growth off of her eyelid. I don't normally mind, but today there's a gentleman coming in to get some info on a vehicle that Mrs. Boss has for sale. (Think classic, rare MB, here - I *lust* after this car! Alas, the price is much to much for the Fiberaddict's pocketbook...*sigh* 71 convertible, only 1,000 ever built - I don't want to put the actual model # here, in case the executor's go looking. Their guy has sat on it since FEBRUARY, and Mrs. Boss is tired of waiting on them. Nothing illegal; the check will be made out to the Estate, not her...but still. Think...Two Eighty ESS EEEE. Three Point Five L engine. *g*) He's been nice on the phone...but in person? Ah, well.....it should enliven a perfectly boring day if nothing else.

Must try to stay awake now.

So much for my indolent Saturday....

my (wonderful!) new neighbor just came over and pulled the tire off of the Kubota for me. He's going to come over around 7-ish Saturday AM and load it in the van for me, so I can take it to the tire shop and get it fixed.

While I'm happy the tractor will be back in commission soon, I *really* didn't want to have to get dressed Saturday!

Ah, well....we'll go get the tire fixed first thing, then come back home and I'll put my jammies back on and spend the rest of the day doing nothing.

Or, at least that's what I hope!
