So, I’m doing what everyone does when they get tapped out. I am loading items on eBay as fast as my freezing cold little match girl fingers can type. I guess it’s the post-coital holiday romance when folks stop buying anything they don’t absotively posilutely need, i know i don’t. I have prints hanging around un framed, appliances disassembled waiting around for parts, and I think my wool winter coat is being held for ransom at the cleaners. I guess i am at heart a grasshopper, not exactly having a big cushion waiting to nibble on come lean times. Every year I keep expecting to change, but grasshoppers don’t morph, that’s moths. I usually depend on my ability to earn just a little bit more when i need it, and yes …hangs head in shame…sometimes that includes selling off some of the crap i have spent my money on over the last 50 years. But i have a lot less crap now and lot more bills.
