I’m thinking about getting a second job, something part-time a couple of evenings a week. It’s not that I really want to, or that I’m bored and don’t have anything to do, but I’m thinking it may be the only way I can actually hope to save up for a new computer, since we’re trying to pay off credit cards with our regular income. How can I justify not using a second job for paying off credit cards? Well, the only way I could tolerate it would be if it was for some purpose that I could feel happy about. Credit cards don’t make me feel happy at all. A new computer would.

At least it’s finally friday.

I think mom & merv are coming over for dinner tonight. I’ll have to come up with something reasonably normal to make for them. No spicy thai curry for them… (or for Chris, for that matter.)

I wish to go home and sleep more.

      At this point, if I *could* get credit to spend on a computer I would. It would be an investment into future income, after all. Sadly, I can’t get any credit now. Too many student loans I defaulted on years ago.

    I’m going to play super 7 tonight.
    If I win, please let me buy you a new computer.

    Otherwise.. I know what you mean about the money thing. (from my planning post) I’ve determined I have about 20 more months of payments before I’m (almost) debt free- at the current rate of payment.
