This whole blogging thing is totally new to me. In someways it seems narcissistic to suppose there's anyone out there interested in reading my thoughts. It's also somewhat cathartic, and I say that with full realization that one of Webster's definitions of the word is "evacuation of the bowels." That being said, I guess you might compare this exercise to written verbal diarrhea! (no coincidence that some of my entries reek!)
If I am guilty of pollution of the blogosphere, I apologize. Please make allowances for the fact that I now have loads of free time and this is one thing I can do that doesn't cut into my social security check. (Welcome to life on a fixed income! ) It wasn't meant to be a fixed income. But then the bottom fell out of my (and a lot of other people's) 401ks and tapping into that prior to a market comeback would be a no-win situation. I keep thinking that as long as I don't touch those funds, I have a shot at recovery. . . If I live long enough!
So...since I can't afford that trip to Aruba or much of anywhere else, here I am, blogging. I like to think of it as digital jogging; I should end up with really svelte digits by the end of the summer. I might even drop down a whole mitten size!
