But, then when you go to the bank to see if you have a couple bucks to take out to buy more groceries, and maybe (finally) buy some curtain panels for at least five of the windows along with some of those squeezy expansion curtain rods that do not need you to make holes in the walls, you find that sort of ignoring your checking account and being frugal...except for groceries...means that if you do not keep track of how much money you have you find that you have more money than you thought. Two and a half times more than you thought.
I missed napping, watching The Book Thief. It was nearly as good as the book, but there was Geoffrey Rush and Emily Watson, so I should have expected that.
