I managed to make $20 dollars mowing lawns for a short while in the mill village. I was met with a lot of ambivalence by people who needed their lawns mowed, but didn’t want to pay to get it done. You win some – you lose some as they say. It’s a very poor neighborhood. I was just proud to make $20 dollars today despite all odds. I quit knocking on doors when it kept thundering loudly. I pushed my mower home and plopped down in front of this computer in my nicely air conditioned den to write this.
I passed Julia’s house on the way home and saw mom’s car there. It’s Monday with the Catholic ladies for her today. She will bring McDonald’s this afternoon and three 20oz diet Cokes. She is insisting our routines not change.
Wednesday, I plan to use my first paycheck to open a checking account with a debit card and a savings account. I am so excited about this. Especially having a debit card. I will be able to order computer parts online again for the first time in a decade. I am going to slowly upgrade my computer part by part over the next several months of paychecks. I also want to start saving money for my iPod Touch and getting the deer damage to my car fixed. I have so many things I need to buy, plan, and save for. I should be hitting the streets with my riding lawn mower hustling and bustling, but I am very tired today. The push mower did me in I think. It always does.
Well, I am driving down to order that muffler for my mower and then I am going to Rodger’s and get a barbecue sandwich and fries. Maggie will get the McDonald’s hamburgers.. I think I deserve a treat today and I am starving and can’t wait on mom to get here. I will write again tonight about the rest of the day!
