I can usually make $400 last a fortnight. Not this time. The kids needed winter gear, we needed to stock up on rice, and I had to keep a promise.
I now have maybe like $2. If something pops up, I'm going to have to dig into my Dreams account to pay for it. And I don't have much in there either.
But it's still worth it because I get a week with my friendo and some interesting times are bound to happen. Including how I'm going to fulfill the rest of my promises without breaking the bank.
Ah, paranoia. It's such fun. I should know by now that I will always find a way. I'm bloody good at it.
And while I'm thinking things through, I can at least get on with my writing.
