i am just shit at posting on this thing lately. so much so, that i downgraded to the free typepad version--hence the no muss no fuss appearance. i figure if i can get back into the swing of things, i'll get a fancy template or something, but until then here we are.
and here isn't such a bad place to be, really. last night, over a $2 can at our favorite neighborhood bar, ted and i were lamenting about how poor we are these days. i mean, we can pay the bills without breaking out the plastic, but we do a lot of, "when we have money we'll buy..." and the idea of group dinners where we know we'll have to split the bill even though we ordered side salads and water, sends us into an anxiety spiral. but when we really step back and put aside all the crap that goes with paycheck-to-paycheck living, life is good. we're happy and we're healthy and we're both pursuing careers that make us happy and we have a snuggly dog who loves us unconditionally. so, yeah, i can't buy that dress i want and ted and i stick to the $2 cans, but we know it probably won't be like this forever. this time in our lives--our early 30's, sans kids, in a city we love without a savings account--is a pretty great place to be.
