The price of college text books - even to rent - is out of control. I am taking 3 summer classes and needed 8 books and it was over $200. If it's this expensive for undergrad stuff, I am scared to know what next year is going to bring with grad school

The property company called yesterday and left a message that the were going to come today and get the swamp cooler ready for summer. For 3 days in a row I sat at home all day and the one day I actually have plans and I end up spending all day waiting for them.

I hope we find a house soon, so we schedule when we want to sit around all day waiting for people to come

I won a $10 grocery store gift card and bought (4) 72% cocoa chocolate bars and was charged $.71 tax. If I bought a jar of mayonnaise I wouldn't have been charged any tax at all. Guess they still need more proof that dark is healthy.

I think it's just another racket.. I think those in the business of producing the books are thinking they want to get a share of all that student loan money floating around out there.

I just plugged my laptop in to charge it. I haven't used it or charged it in about 4 months. I hope it didn't die of neglect.

Honey, Ain't Nothin' Ever Gonna Be Like It Was Before.

Sounds like my Desktop, I think I've used it 3 times this year. Really need to turn it on and run Windows Update. I much prefer my Chromebook and when the desktop does die, I'm not even sure I'd buy another one.



Of all the things I've lost, I miss my mind the most.

We've been house hunting one day and I'm already sick of it.
