Shopping is going to be depressing this week. There are too many bargains, and I won't have the cash to take advantage of all of them. I'll have to decide which to buy and which to forgo, and that's always depressing. The week should improve after Tuesday, though, as I have an appointment with the chiropractor that day and my neck is really ready for the adjustment. But the week could turn bad quickly if the power fails. The pilot light on the heater in the den has gone out again, and I can't get it re-lit. As that's my only backup heat source, I could get very, very cold on those upcoming nights when the temperature drops into the twenties. Even with the weather stripping added a couple of years ago, this house is still leaky.
So January is ending already. February has sneaked up on me. I can't say I'm sorry to see January go, but I wish it wasn't going to just dry up and blow away in a chilly wind.
