wADmM5mNLtOv064mhMCS_CYE3Bc Just Dorothy: It's a familiar feeling that I just don't like....

It's a familiar feeling that I just don't like....

I've determined that I have a love/hate relationship with money.  I love to have it, hate to spend it.  I bet you are the same way, no?  Buying groceries every week is killing me!  I try to be choosy about what I put in the cart and it doesn't matter if it's a little or a lot, it's almost always at least $100 or more.  And it pisses me off, makes me physically queasy to know that I don't have a choice, I have to buy groceries!!! 

And it's not like it's convenient to get those groceries, either.  It's a 20+ mile trek just to get to the store if you need to buy anything more than milk or eggs.  One way.  So, we always make sure we have a plan, combine 2 trips into the one.  Like oil change and grocery shopping at the same time so we can multi-task.  Which leads me to the whole gas thing.  $70 to fill up today.  I was telling a much younger co-worker today that I could remember paying 99 cents a gallon when I was in high school.  An movies were a nickle! Haha, you get the idea. 

It's just my little vent today.  Damn supply and demand crap!

    And things are just getting more and more expensive. I DO remember when gas was under 40 cents a gallon - like 40 years ago. Was talking to my neighbor yesterday and he bought his house at $85,000 (middle class neighborhood in Ohio) 6 years ago - it's worth $55,000 now. the house across the street from us that belonged to an elderly woman just sold for $35,000 - 25 years ago we bought our home for $40,000 - I don't even want to know what I could sell it for today. Sad, sad, sad. Life is a journey and we're all along for the ride LOL

    Found you at one of the weekend hops and honestly I can't remember which one - hope you can follow me back to WynnieBee's Buzz By Sunday - still a newbie :D

    Well - try to have a good week anyway!

    Bee Seeing You
