Re: 12 Months of Freedom..And Lovin' Every Minute
So here I am in Regional Victoria counting down the days until I can leave my little town and go for a drive. Who would have thought that the prospect of going for a drive could be so exciting. Still I must admit I am one of the lucky ones, I'm working and our little shop is still open for business. Oh and I am sooo loving having to wear a mask for 8 hours a day but what must be done
Anywho, so things have been pretty quiet here lately, the world continues to turn and the pokies in Victoria remain silent - the only good thing to come out of this pandemic if you ask me. I'm continuing my gamble free journey, it has been 3 years and 6 months since I last played to pokies and if that's not a reason to celebrate I don't know what is
I was thinking just the other day actually that I just can't figure out how I ever had the time or money to gamble, I mean seriously by the time I pay bills, buy groceries, pay the mortgage, paying off my car there is not a lot left in the old bank account. I actually find it very hard to part with my money these days, I procrastinate and think and go back and forth, "Do I really want that $20 DVD?" and to think that 3 years ago I had no quarms about stuffing $500 into a poker machine in one sitting. Crazy how your value of money can change given time. That's the trick of gambling, it skews your value of money. Money just becomes numbers on a screen, the bigger the number the better your going, until the inevitable happens and you see that big fat ZERO in the screen, damn it I've worked with cash my whole life, being in retail it is a cash business and working in a Tatts outlet you handle a lot of cash, it's easy to loose the value of a $50 or even a $20 note when you see them everyday in the quantities I see them but nothing destroyed my value of money more than the pokies.
So that was kinda long winded wasn't it
