Monday, the Skin of My Teeth

It's payday tomorrow, I had to buy fuel, I have five dollarydoos left in my account and the oven preheating for the baking.

I need coffee, cream, flour, chia [I'm out at last], salt, and sundry other fixings.

I might take Miss Chaos out shopping with me when we can afford such an excursion. It's a long and complicated trip I have queued up to take most of my moneys.

Costco, Golden Circle Factory Outlet, the meat market, Aldi, and finally Woolies for my cream. I'm not getting the Aldi cream any more. It keeps going off on me. Malaney Dairies may be more expensive, but their stuff LASTS long enough.

See the "Boots Theory" of economics care of Sir Terry Pratchett.

I chase bargains where I can, but some bargains aren't worth it.

Chapter count: Working on getting halfway through 370

Today, there shall be fresh bread. Tomorrow, I shall be able to get the stuff to make more. And keep the fam fed in the meantime.

I barely made it this fortnight. Fingers crossed, I shall have a better time of it this pay cycle.

Fingers... very crossed.

Beloved isn't as interested in Book 4 of A Devil's Tale as she once was. She can't nail it down, so I'm just writing what compels me and hoping for the best.

I might actually get to those epilogues.

Time will tell.
