When writing this post the theme song of “The Apprentice” came to mind and that’s where my title came from. Reading this 12 hours later though it looks like I’m just shouting the word “Money!” over and over again. 😆
I’m sitting here typing on my laptop with the soothing sound of my new dishwasher cleaning the dishes in the background. We just got it on Friday and Adrian installed it on Saturday, making me ever grateful for having married a handy kind of guy that can do these things for us.
As I was reveling in my new appliance I realized that we’ve done a lot of splurging in that department this year.
We’re spending money like it’s goin’ outta style during a time when all I hear is doomsday prophesies about the economy. Depending on who you listen to in the news, that is. Some say Canada will be okay others say we’ll be in a depression.
And it’s not that we set out to buy a bunch of new stuff this year. It’s that everything is breaking down. I guess, we could live without these comfort appliances. Not the fridge, of course, but we didn’t have to get the fancy shmancy one.
Ah well. It’s done now. No use crying over spilled dollars, but we do have to be more careful from now on. I just hope the washing machine can hold on for a few more years.
