All This Good News
All this good news started a month or several weeks ago when I started thinking about getting old and not being able to work anymore. I figured out that if I put $40 away each week, I would have $360,000 by the time I retired. I even put $40 into a book, all hidden-like. I walked around fairly pleased for a week or so, then redid the calculations.
I've also been walking around under the impression that all of this good news on my horizon is either going to be good news or nothing. But that's false. I have, let's say, four things out there, waiting, and to be honest, at least two of them are really things, that if they don't work out, they will make things worse for me. Things will be, let's say, taken away. And I do not have that much to give.
Still, no news is good news, right? And good news is definitely good news. And all news is news, so what am I complaining about? No sleep because there's a dog that runs around all over my roof at night? Who's going to believe that?
No fruit yet: still terrified.
Please enjoy the rest of your day.
