The Usual

By the time I got back from Safeway and had the groceries put away it was too late to go to the Goodwill store and see if they had added any good books to the shelves today. The bargains I got at Safeway and the acquisition of several items I was out of or running low on should be enough to satisfy me, but the fact is I've become addicted to finding and buying interesting books that I'll probably never have the time to read. If they happen to be books I lost in the fire, so much the better, but I'm also pleased to find things I've never had before. But while there are certainly costlier addictions that buying books, there are few that can take up so much space so quickly.

Since I have not yet gotten around to buying much furniture there is still quite a bit of space available in this apartment, but I have begun to worry about how much trouble it would be to move to another place, which I will have to do eventually, the insurance money to cover the rent being available for only three years. I'm also starting to worry a bit about the possibility of another flood such as we had last spring. Right now many of the books are still stacked on the floor, which would be a very bad thing should the place get as wet as it did last time. The shortage of furniture means there wouldn't be many other places to put the books in such an emergency.

It's dry here for now, so I ought to save my panic for the actual event, should it arrive. A storm of that sort two years in a row does seem unlikely. Anyway, I have more immediate problems, such as getting to sleep tonight, and getting up tomorrow, and figuring out what to do with the rest of my life. Little things like that take up so much of my time.

My windows just rattled. The wind is coming up. Tomorrow (today now, actually) should be interesting.
