Thinking Cheap Thoughts

September 17th, 2011 at 12:05 pm

DH is again hearing rumblings at work about layoffs. Just what we don't need. But anxiety like that always spurs me into action. I made a big pot of chili, headed to CVS with my coupons and extra bucks, and picked up a pork roast on sale on the way home.

Yesterday I sold a book too--so that will go into the Paypal account where I have "almost" enough for a single mortgage payment.

We were planning on Chinese food out tonight since I worked through my birthday celebration and we are without babysitter. But DD is complaining of mouth/cheek pain so we might just stay home. Bleah.

I'm showing Mamet's "Glengarry Glen Ross" in my class next week so I watched it again last night. How bleak--and what a good lesson it is on resisting sales!

    Alec Baldwin was brilliant in that role they added for him in the GGR film. I hated him. Wink Yeah, that is a really well-crafted and depressing piece, and it does lead me to feel squeamish about sales of any sort... retail, insurance, real estate, whatever. Ugh.

    First prize: Cadillac
    Second Prize: Steak Knives
    Third Prize; You're fired

    Paulette: It poured yesterday, but I walked my two miles this afternoon.

    I love Vancouver--but haven't been there in a dozen years. Hope you had fun.
