September!

I typed the title and then realized just how much stuff I need to do right now. Blarghl. Oh well!

September has arrived. I have a wedding anniversary this month shortly before the anniversary of quite a bit of terror in this country. There’s a three day weekend coming up tomorrow. I have some school supplies I need to get for Junior Youth. There’s another post due today, and and then I need to get the Income/Expenses post up on time this month instead of forgetting it completely like in August.

Speaking of August, why are sales so dismal in August? I haven’t got enough skin in the game to notice myself, but I’ve heard from others and I thought I’d drop the question here. I have two readers who might have input. I think the general theory is “end of summer”-itis, but there might be more to it.

Today I get to work in a┬ádifferent building than usual, and I’m out of both salad material and smoothie basics, so I think I’ll probably end up going out for lunch. I have a little bit of cash yet. I think there are bananas in my future. ­čÖé Oh, and I need to get some of the ripe ones in the fridge soon. Oops…

Yesterday I was exhausted so I didn’t get much written. My mind was shot, but I made a decent stab at it in the morning.

I’ll do better today.

Oh, the other thing I did yesterday was more of a thing I didn’t do. There was a limited time opportunity that honestly, is probably exactly what I need. It was a good deal (compared to its regular pricing), but still a┬álot of money. I was on the fence, and just about to commit, and then I went online to check one of the (free) communities I’m already a part of. Almost immediately I realized that community was not only all I need (in the immediate present) but also my best tool. So I decided against the opportunity (ultimately it’s still available but at a higher price). There may be a time down the road when I go that route, but right now, I need to focus on other things.

Is good. I’m happy.
