I've been in a blah mood lately. Neither excited nor depressed about anything in particular. Just... here.

In my book, no news is indeed good news, but blahness is a bland gruel that makes one yearn for some zest in their palette. And oh, and what dangerous yearning it can be if I am not careful.

Admittedly, my spending activity has spiked recently, but it's over stuff that I've been putting off for literally years. I think now is a good time to finish taking advantage of "recession sales" before they dry up. Have you noticed that they're going away or is it just me? I know Men's Wearhouse has ended their buy one get one suit deal. I'm glad I got what I wanted out of there before then. Bed Bath & Beyond no longer honors expired coupons....

But by and large, I'm focused on saving, and it's not exactly all that great for the case of the blahs.

There is something that I've always wanted to do though: Buy a house. Been looking into that. If I really, really buckle down and eat my bowls of blahs three meals a day, I can buy a house as early as six years from now. Ten years if I want something reasonable that doesn't involve mouse traps and returning fire from rival gangs that think their bland oatmeals are better than my bland gruel. Gruel up, oats down, Special K.

So, you may be thinking, "What the heck is he talking about six to ten years?" My own safehouse, holmes. In cash! We're gonna cap The Man, Mr. Mortgage in the knees and send him face down in a bowl of blahs, South side style yo. But doing that is gonna get me six to ten in the joint. Know what I'm sayin'? You dig? You gettin' down jiggie-shizzle wit' it?

Ok, I don't know how in the world I ended up trying to talk gangsta'. I'll stop now.

Seriously though, don't worry. I'm haven't forgotten to have fun, but yeah... I dream of a house some day... in cash. I wonder if that's even possible? I wonder where I'll be, job-wise, in six to ten years from now? But I do know it's also going to require a lot of blah days like this one....

Oh, and last entry I said I'd try to be extra frugal this time. Well, I ate a can of soup last night that's been sitting in my pantry for quite some time. Next time, I'll actually try to make sense. Peace!

    You made complete sense. Your going for your dream, but getting there can be like oatmeal sometimes! Go crazy and throw in that dash of cinnamon!!

    I love the fact that I have owned my home free and clear for the last 32 years!!

    I love that you can make me giggle about well, boring savings for 6-10 years, hope you smile too.

    Not a bad goal to pay cash. If you don't save up enough in 6 years, I would think you'd have a nice downpayment!! So, go for it.

    You can do it!

    Buying a house with straight cash as a good a goal as any. I wouldn't worry, I think you have plenty of time. And if one was being foreclosed on, one would hope for blah. Big Grin

    I totally understand the blah feeling. Sometimes if I think about it too much, how my goal of a house is now at least an extra two - three years further out (due to going back to school/min wage job) I get a major case of the blahs.
