But it is a little bit funny.

One last random thought

It was in the 80's and 90's for a few weeks- ok, maybe it was above 70 for 2 days. So I assumed it was summer, shut off the heat, opened the windows and started wearing summer clothes. Suddenly today it is about 40 degrees and then I remembered tha sometimes it snows in Boston in May. Good thing I didn't open the pool. But now I seem to have done something to my heat so it thinks it has to keep the house at a comfortable 32 degrees. As long as the hot flashes continue, it's ok. But now my cheapness is kicking in. People want to buy my house. I am having all these home inspections and frankly, I will probably accept whatever they offer because I have a get out of jail free card if they offer less than what I owe on the mortgage. (Good time to have cancer when the economy is a mess.) So do i fix the heat, or maybe just go on a vacation somewhere warm? I have also refused to fix the dryer and have taken to throwing out dirty clothes unless I really like them and just buying new ones. For the clothes i don't throw out, I am waiting for the laundry fairy.

This is really what i want to do. Take every single thing out of my house, have a yard sale, at which I will suck and charge 25 cents for everything, give the rest away to the Salvation Army and then with my handful of possessions , move into a tiny cave where i shun all material possessions except shoes and don't have to worry about fixing things. Well except its not really a cave but my friend's apartment with a walk in closet for me and a gym in the basement. But I still plan to shun some material possessions (my new monk-like better person, having learned from cancer.) I am totally shunning my kitchen table and its mis-matched chairs and I am also shunning the tv in the living room that has recently started to make a funny noise. And that green table that I bought at IKEA that was supposed to be a desk in the office but only works if you are a midget. And I will shun that painted wood furniture unless Laura wants it as a reminder of how we should never become interior decorators. And all my kitchen appliances, except my kitchen aid mixer, consider yourselves shunned as well. I am down-sizing and simplifying. Maybe having done all this I can save up enough money to buy a Cadilac Escalade. Only kidding.
