That IPAD addiction of mine

I want an e-reader now, and I want it to be an IPAD but know gen2 is coming out within 3 months and will be huge improvement on the gen 1 IPAD so it's worth waiting for. So, I have to read e-books on my laptop and put $$ into saving to wait for Apple to release the gen 2 toy I want.
It's a good life, I shoveled snow today, not just my snow but Chuck and Alberta's snow too, and that is something I didn't think I would ever be able to do so I have come a long way in the past few months. I know it won't be easy but I will be able to do some things that matter to me. It might seem stupid to others but ya, shoveling the snow for my neighbors does matter to me, it's something I have enjoyed and thought I had lost because of this accident.
Finances will be tight, and I will be struggling for a long time here with paying down debts and with getting this house fixed. But I will be able to do more than I had expected to be able to do. I don't know if I will get back some of what I have lost but the little things do matter to me. I am going to be able to shovel snow and maybe come summer I might be riding that bike of mine.
So, for now I will read my e-books on laptops and be glad I have them, and I will be glad I have a good and good health insurance and I will be glad I have no relationships that are financially draining and that the dog loves my company even when I have scolded him or smacked him for some thing he should not have done.
I will let my little sister chase the love of her life, or whatever, think I can live with my quiet friendship and rare times together out of the plant with a man who has his act together, who is very financially stable, keeps a good job and doesn't lie to me or try to use me.

Financially draining relationships are the worst. You get your heart and your brain and your money all tangles up and then you start wondering exactly WHAT the attraction was on the guys part. Just your money? (That is what I always think at the end).
I dated a guy once who wanted $4,000 to start up a website development business. This was before I even knew anyone who had a computer. It seemed as if that was the sole thing on his mind. He would send me daily faxes (to my job) and then I was in trouble for that. (Like I could control what people fax). I finally wrote him a letter and told him I was NEVER going to invest money....and surprise, I never heard from him again. Oh, if he had only know I didn't HAVE $4,000just sitting around in piles in the house!
It is beyond me why some men just automatically assume that a woman with a house is flush AND too stupid to know how to save her money.

This old house needs so much, but bit by bit I will get things done. I am so sick of knowing people who tell me how they want to take care of me and I look at how they take care of themselves and their own lives and Ya, like you have the skills to take care of anything???
Now I stick with very limited friendships and very little involvement and for now that works well...after all, it is My life, I do get to be in charge
