Trying to write again and Black Friday

Well, Black friday was ok for me. I got to participate a little by purchasing somethings online. I had about $300 on credit cards to spend, but didn't spend that much.

I'm desperate for a new computer. this one is 15 years old and not worth fixing up any more. I would basically have to gut it (even the motherboard) and start over. I really don't have the money or energy for that any more. So I was looking for a cheap computer.

To my absolute delight, I was able to get a Windows Surface for $200. I had been wanting one of these, but thought I'd get one after they had been out for 10 years and I could get a used one, lol. Now I anxiously await its arrival.

I really needed to get some clothes. I buy 2 packs of t-shirts and 4 pairs of sweats every year, that's my going out clothes and PJs. So I really need to work on the wardrobe situation. Every time I tried to buy clothes this weekend, they were sold out before I got to check out. Oh well, maybe next year.

On the writing front, I have written articles in the past and I plan on getting back to it. The Surface will help a lot, as I spend a lot of time in bed (can't sit at the computer too long). So hopefully I can get back in the swing of things.

I just realized that an article I wrote for Yahoo Voices has been earning a few bucks for me every month. But I haven't received any payments because I hadn't been logging in. Something I hadn't thought about. You can see my contributor page here.

Got a plan, just have to get it going.
