The Friday 56

Liberated from Sweet Memes.

*Grab a book, any book.

*Turn to page 56 or 56% in your eReader.(If you have to improvise, that's ok.)

*Find any sentence, (or few, just don't spoil it)
*Post it.

My current read: An Appetite for Murder by Lucy Burdette.

"Suddenly the murder felt exquisitely real, and my so-called involvement, very scary."

My next read: The Last Lion, edited by Peter S. Canellos

"The school was run by nuns from the Order of the Sacred Heart, and the girls had to abide by strict curfews and rules."

OneWord: FOCUS on Money

If my calculations are correct,* I spend between $1,880 and $2,000 a year on workweek lunches.

I feel I deserve this extravagance. And that may well be. However, I cannot afford it.

By brown bagging it just one day every week, I can:
•  save about $30 each month, or more than $350/year
•  take care of the possible $27.75 monthly increase in my condo assessment without any undue hardship.

And so I shall begin January by focusing on packing my lunch one day/week. I won't allow myself to forget/ignore this.

*A big "if"
