    I think Im supposed to be poor.....

    First day off today. I went over to my new apartment 30 miles away from where Im living now. I made a deal to paint , clean, and repair little things for reduced rent. I drove there in my Ford F150 ( 2000 ) the insurance is paid. I stopped on the way to get a non fat vanilla latte.. picked up a few things at Lowes. Paint, Kilnz, Rollers etc..... Worked there for a few hours,
    ( Got a late start as I am pretty crippled on Sundays) Came home, nice and warm in this apartment. Mixed an Absolute Vodka with Orange and a splash of Cranberry. Cooked a T Bone steak.. ( on sale at Kroeger ) had sliced celery with roasted red peppers, with greek balsamic dressing. I am posting this thread. Then I will take a steaming hot bath... slip down onto my queen sized memory foam bed... fall asleep while watching a DVD ( granted on my 19inch 25.00 TV.) get up in the morning... make a pot of Madaglia Doro espresso with half and half.. drive to the new apartment, and paint again tomorrow. Not too shabby huh? I dont have many belongings, but I certainly am comfortable, and Im definately not hungry. I dont think this is being poor. Now, everything will be fine..... as long as I can be fortunate enough to keep my health. Thank you God.

    You can have steak. Go get the little chuck steaks.. They are very inexpensive... very delicious. Sometimes you can buy a package of 4 or 5 or 6 little ones for 5, or 6 dollars. Anyone can have steak. You simply have to monitor the local meat cases, and hit it lucky.

    For some weird reason, I have never had the desire to accumulate things.
    I see friends shop, and long to accumulate closets full of clothes, and jewelry. They have cabinets over flowing with china, and do hickeys... drawers full of table cloths they couldnt possibly use in a lifetime. I think I like to live lean, because of falling in love, when I was young, with westerns. When the people traveled in covered wagons, everything they owned was pretty much in two saddle bags. This concept of being resourceful, and making due was very appealing to me. I never viewed them as being deprived. I saw them as being free, and ready to handle any experience life threw their way.

    I'm with you, Weeder. Seems like the more some people make, the less they have left over.
