Well, today… I bought a plastic file holder, a chairmat for the floor, a light, a chair, a desk, a wireless router with PC card, a USB adapter for it, set up an appointment with Comcast to get Cable Internet and basic cable…

Next… maybe tonight – the biggest bill yet: my new PC (and first PC all to myself).

Sometime this month or next, I might also be buying a TV (like 27 inches) and maybe a bookcase, if I decide I need one.

I will spend more money in 30 days than I have in most of my life.

Maybe I’ll post a picture when it’s all settled. I can’t wait.

Good bye, money…
