Fat Tuesday

Today is Fat Tuesday! I have to treat myself somehow today, although since I'm not going to cut out meat on Friday or do anything vaguely religious maybe I shouldn't... Nah! Let's party! Next year I'm definately going back to New Orleans for Mardi Gras.
Maybe. Ok, probably not, but I can dream.

Dreary days here and probably there as well. It's just as well I'm not there, I'd probably get sick.

Work proceeds as usual.

I think I have my tennis shoes distributed now so that I always have a pair handy if I want to go exercise/walking. I plan to walk around the Galleria today after work for some exercise. Oh! I've got it, a celebratory Fat Tuesday piece of Cheesecake from the Cheesecake factory will be nice. I know it's defeating to plan your exercise route and include a cheesecake stop, but you only live once.

Fiscal responsibility
Visited with my Dad last weekend as well, we have plans for a crawfish boil the weekend of the 15th in Austin. He was laid off recently and apparently has been living way above his means. Hasn't saved a penny for a rainy day. We told him to pick up the crawfish and bring it up to Austin for the family since he was there and would be coming and we would pay for the crawfish, but he wanted gas money too. Geez. I'm sure he'll end up trying to borrow money from me if he doesn't get a job soon. He's a prime candidate for bankrupcy sometime in the future. I can't understand what the hell he spends all his money on. He has a little bitty house, he buys a new truck every two years so yeah, there's a big chunk, but that's the only thing I can see. He made like 75K a year. Boggles the mind. He's always been that way.
Me, I'm just the opposite. I try to live below my means all the time and put money in the bank for a rainy day.
There seems to be a Law of Conservation of Sanity in my family as well. As my dad has gotten saner and less alcoholic my mom has gotten crazier.

Music for me!
