16 weeks

April 15th, 2008 at 09:11 am

I didn't notice I had 500 blogs until someone commented on it - thanks.

Since I stocked up on groceries last week, this week only spent $6.53. Got 2 64 oz bottles of Welches Grape juice for free with coupons. Milk went up from $2.00 per half gallon to $2.29 - 15% increase.

I got my haircut at Great Clips they had a coupon for $6.99. Normal price is $12 so a very good coupon.

I'm starting to count the weeks till retirement. My estimate is I will retire Aug 8 unless someone really ticks me off, in which case i might leave earlier Smile So 16 more weeks.

Finihsed reading my book Simple Prosperity by David Wann. Anti-Consumerism. Overall this was good and had some good information. I agree we Americans are wasteful and complacent and could be more efficient with our resources. I just don't like the knee-jerk liberal phrases and anti-americanism so many of these books spout. Europe does everything better than us. We are too religious as a country, blah-blah-blah. Humans are the root of all evil and white men are the most egregious of them all.

Finished the library book Kildar by John Ringo. Adventure. Good.

    I just saw an Australian comic who said the same thing about Americans...we are too religious. The crowd didn't exactly laugh either!!

    what are your plans for activities during retirement?

    would you ever consider teaching at the junior college or something part time? With years of exerience they would love it.

    "if someone really ticks me off...." Geez, you sound like me and the office job. "Tick me off and I'm gone NOW. Be nice and I'll stay until May 20..."
