February came in with a lot of hope and promise and left with annoyance and bitterness.
Everything started out great as I was able to piece enough money together so that I could proudly proclaim that I'm Debt Free!
Before the month ends that proclamation ended up being short lived as a trip to the dentist office forced me back into becoming a debt slave again until probably the end of the year. Ugh. WTF.
When all is going right, there is something out there to derail me.
However, it's all just temporary. Hopefully before the year ends I can make this scream and statement again - though probably with a bit less enthusiasm.
I did a lot of reading in February, all of the Comic Book Variety. The month started out slow but picked up and ended with a bang.
It appears that on the days I work the late shift I do a lot of early morning reading. When I work earlier shifts I tend to spend my free time with the lady and kid. So, having nothing but closes to end the month allowed me to catch up to where I wanted to be and start March with Death of the Family which is turning out to be amazing so far.
The Joker really knows how to spice things up.
I'll probably start doing at least one Comic Book post per week to sum up what I have read and what I liked or didn't like over the course of the week.
February saw me playing catch up (and blogging about) Red Hood and the Outlaws, Batman and Robin, Teen Titans and Suicide Squad.
There was, of course, more reading than just that but that's all I really talked about.
In total I read (and forced the last few out just for the good ratio) 140 comic books in February, this works out to an average of 5 per day. An "improvement" over what I did in January but something I doubt I can keep up for March unless I happen to work a lot of evenings. I'll admit that the first two days are well above average because I can't stop taring through Death of the Family.
Weight loss was pretty close to a zero sum game. I got sick and lost a good amount of weight but then I had some dental work which caused me to eat a lot of chicken noodle soup and pancakes which caused me to gain weight back. I'm starting March at 237.8 which is NOT the 235 I wanted to be at already.
The work on my teeth will be complete on Thursday provided my crowns come in and as soon as I can exercise with no thump thump thump in my teeth then I plan on going to the gym on my two days off every week. Gotta start somewhere and I'm willing to start small.
This Friday we are taking the kid to the Vegas Motor Speedway for the Nascar time trials and whatnot.
If I can find a way to come up with the money Stephen Lynch is playing at the House of Blues on Saturday.
Since I just got home and ate breakfast right before typing this post it's time for a shower and some more reading. I can't wait to see what that Joker has in store next!
