Virtue 12 - Day 2

When we last left this channel, we were focusing on chastity.  Not a big challenge yesterday.  Not a big challenge today.

So, since having sex was out of the equation for the day, I decided to go to Chelan with 2 of my buddies.  For those of you who don't know where Chelan is, suffice it to say that it's the town I'd live in if I could afford the taxes and could actually find gainful employment there.  I love Chelan-it's a very small town with cute shops.  Anyhow, we hit the quilt store, so that I could get fabric for my kitchen curtains and to cover my 2 "dining room" chairs (which also come with a card table!), the indie bookstore (my favorite place in a 60-mile radius, no contest) and the health food store (well, I like to go in there, anyway).  I knew that I had $90 to spend, and between those shops and the Sweet River Bakery (my second-favorite place within a 60-mile radius) I believe I came in under the wire.

I haven't actually added it up though, and well, Monday is payday.  Today's virtue isn't "keeping track of your spending."

Which brings me to...February. 

I am making an executive decision to switch my schedule.  Originally we were scheduled for a "spending fast" for the month of February.  For those of you who are untrendy and don't know what that is, when you go on a "spending fast" you pay your essential bills and buy only the barest of necessities for a month.  The idea being that you, at the end of the month, have a pile of money that you can roll around in, ala Demi Moore in that movie with Robert Redford.  I believe it's colossally unfair to expect me to buy only the necessities during my "move" month.  And since you all love me, and want what's best for me, I'm sure you agree.

So February will be the "how many sit-ups can you do in a month" month, and "spending fast" will be adjusted to that month.  In case you can't tell by my cryptic language, I can't remember what month that is.  But we'll figure it out.

  1. Thank God your switching to the "sit-ups" month. I just opened another bag of chocolate chips. They'll probably be gone in the morning...
