The Wheel of Money

They say money can’t buy happiness, but….well, you know how the rest of it goes.

These last few years we’ve been watching our savings dwindle down faster than we can replenish it. Sometimes it feels like we’re treading water, and other times I’m floating on my back without a care in the world.

There are days like today, when all I want is to be able to go to a restaurant because I’m hungry, without worrying about whether or not we can actually afford it. I want to buy the simple things, like food and fuel, without subtotaling in my brain what my American Express bill will look like at the end of the month.

I know we’re really fortunate and there are loads of people who’ve got it worse than we do. I feel like a schlepp for complaining at all.

But just once, I would love to buy the best brand at the supermarket, or that $20 bottle of wine and enjoy eating and drinking things without fretting over what I just paid.

Is that too much to ask, Universe?
