I need to do a very carefully thought out monthly budget ASAP.
This room actually costs me $180 a week.
For continuity of effort without interruption in January, it is going to cost me $900 out of pocket this month (5 weeks X $180 = $900).
This means I have to buy a small crock pot and start cooking things like lentil soup to reduce my expenses.
I ate a big hamburger today that costs $13, and I lost $17 playing poker. Ouch!
I also spend $30 on groceries and odds and ends (plates, forks, dish soap, etc) and $10 buying tobacco and a Reese’s Pieces Candy Bar.
Seventy dollars a day out of pocket comes to over $2100 a month.
If I am lucky after housing, I probably have about $450 left.
It costs $60 to renew my phone
And I need perhaps $60 in supplements.
Oops, and I need to buy some pot.
Tomorrow I need to do a carefully prepared monthly budget for JAN.
My money is sure going to get tight real quick—>
If I want to keep this nice roof over my head, eat all I want, and smoke all I want until Feb. 1st.
I did need to take a break from blogging today, and go out and have a little splurge and a little fun.
Three weeks in a homeless shelter sleeping in a chair a lot of the time, and dragging a 60 lb. suitcase with bad wheels all over the place, deserves—>
A little party when “the pain is finally over”.
However, I have to curtail such tendencies, or I may wind up in a homeless shelter again.
If I do end up having to vacate this room, or another that is similar, I would be guilty of fiscal mismanagement and fiscal stupidity—>
And have no one but myself to blame.
I only got three hours or so of sleep last night.
I also need more rest, and—>
To do some thinking—>
Before I really get going Internet-wise and Website Development-wise.
Despite a tighter fiscal equation than I expected, I am very glad I am in Reno!
I feel Good About Things! regardless of—>

Things Are All Going 2 Work Out here in Reno! i think.
Just allow me a little time to get settled in.
