if you don't have a Trader Joe's near you (cause who can beat great wine for $3.29 - $2.99 in CA!??), i HIGHLY reccomend this wine:

don't let the crew cap scare you. seriously. they have a fab white too. i usually drink white, but we used to have big house red at the restaurant where i used to work, flatbread, and we all used to have a glass or two after work.

flatbread is incredible wood fire oven pizza which they make in vermont and sell frozen in specialty supermarkets. i guarentee you will NOT find a better pizza - fresh OR frozen. i worked at one of their restuarants in amesbury, mass and i loved it so much that i would commute an hour when we moved to gloucester in the summer.

Mood: okay

is this depression? i don't think so, but i have no other way to describe how i am feeling. numb? maybe. it's easier to hide in the winter when you can say it is too cold, too windy, too snowy to leave the house. too cozy inside. to dark too early.

this weekend, it's been 70 and gorgeous. i haven't left my apartment since i got home friday. i just don't care. i'm not unhappy, i'm just not motivated. but when it's nice out, it makes me feel guilty.

i overdrew my bank account like a fucking idiot, so now i have NO money until friday. the reason i am so annoyed is because i have a check that i hadn't depositied, so it was totally unnessecary. i still would have had only $20, but at least i wound't have ended up with a $30 overdraft charge. grr, so i'm writing the check over to my sister and letting my bank account hang out in the negative until i get paid on friday.

then, instead of being a good little girl and paying off as much as i can possibly afford and having NOTHING left over, i'm going to pay my amex (i use it for groceries), sprint, and a couple hundred for the work on my stupid car and not try to live on as little as fucking possible. it's not fucking worth it. i can get it paid in a very timely manner without suffering like this and feeling guity. i haven't bought anything fo myself since new years and that was the first time i bought clothes for myself since last february. i haven't had a hair cut since november, i don't get my nails done, i haven't been on vacation, i have been going out more and spending a tiny bit there, but wtf?

no one else seems to be as fucking forsaken and stillm make as much as i do. i know that i pay too much in rent, but damn it, i have a real job, i just got a raise and i am only supporting myself. i should be able to spoil myself once in a while. what am i killing myself for? i even have a second part-time job!

i have managed to save enough for my roth contribution, which was important to me, but man, have i sacrificed. and the roth was only 3000! i just need to start living here and stop thinking about what the future will bring and how i need to prepare. or better yet, i need to find a better balance.

but first, i think it is cocktail hour. wine and a couple puffs on the balcony. what a lovely way to spend a sunday afternoon...
