On Our Debt to Our Parents

This idea is heavy on my mind lately. My parents will retire and move to one coast and I may want to stay where I am or move to the other coast. But if you don't believe in God or an afterlife, this is your only shot, and what do you choose to spend your life on? And where?

On Our Debt to Our Parents

The analogy seems clear to me. Nobody asks you to pay the hospital bills for the injured person you found on the hillside, but you found them because you were nearest. Children tend to be emotionally nearest their parents.

On Planning a 2015 Budget: Revised and Updated

@HelloTheFuture Right, I mean, I wouldn't lose much more than that on household stuff, but I couldn't cough up $660 today or even this month.

On Planning a 2015 Budget: Revised and Updated

@Greenbeans Yeah. I find the "no things of value" argument specious, too, because if I had to replace only my mattress and box spring today I couldn't really afford to -- let alone my computer/s or even my vacuum cleaner. (ETA: Still true if I were doing that replacing at Target or cheaper.)

On Living Alone

@bgprincipessa I'm a hybrid slob so I keep a stash of all the napkins that come with takeout or grab a bunch when I'm at Chipotle or something.
