Variation on typical themes last night. I dreamed of trying to navigate some school cafeteria (not sure if it was college, or even elementary school, there was no way to really determine) with no money. Surrounded by food, slowly starving. The American Way. This aspect went on for a while, and was awful.

After that, I went back to the room I was staying in. Seemed like a dorm or a hotel, and was obviously temporary. My GF had run off somewhere, apparently for good. She left everything I ever gave her in a sort of pile. There were these two ill behaves little boys there, that we were supposed to be watching for someone, and they had gotten into everything. And to top it all off, I was supposed to be moving and vacating the premises ASAP.

I was trying to get things rounded up to get out of this place, and get these children packed up for whoever owned them to come and get, but they kept not coming, so it kept on being my problem. After a while, I discovered that they also had a sister with them, who had been so quiet and well behaved, that I never knew she was there, amidst the chaos. I was trying to keep an eye on all of them while also packing things into trailers, and into a U-Haul truck.

Eventually, I got most of it packed, and I had the girl in the back of the truck, and the boys were all in side-cars with some bikers, and my dad came along and hooked up a weird classic car to the first trailer, and then hooked each additional trailer to the back of the one before it, so that there was a long snake of like 10 trailers laden with stuff, and he was planning to just drive it along like that.

It seemed kinda sketchy, but he said that he knew what he was doing, and I had too much to worry about with the kids and the bikers to worry about it. As the procession creeped along, I found 2 weird garage spaces with old car parts that I had to do something with. It was a treasure trove of junk. I was trying to juggle all these different aspects of everything, with all this mess going on
, and I woke up. Couldn't go back to sleep, and missed 30 mins to an hour of sleep before the alarm went off.

Filed my taxes last night. Hopefully the check comes in soon. Should be able to fully pay off one of my few remaining bills, and then put the (small amount) of left over funds into savings. I will save it there and try to add to it as I can until I have enough to pay off another bill, and then repeat that process 1 more time, and I will have zero bills, outside of my regular monthly recurring stuff (car note, mortgage, utilities, etc). That process would pay off a CC, the financing on my computer, and my personal loan. If I keep living by this strict budget (yay, ramen noodles) that I've been on for the past couple of weeks, it actually shouldn't take all that long. When that happens, I should be able to really save the shit out of some money, since it won't be all going so steeply towards debt each month. I should be able to amass tools and supplies for the two biggest projects on my plate right now (The Studebaker, and Halloween 2017). Having those things as goals has really helped me curb my random expenses. The food budget has dropped by 75% for instance. Hopefully my momentum on it lasts. I think that paying something off will feel good enough and be such a big step, that it will further strengthen my resolve. So, I guess any time within the next 21 days (so claims the IRS), that should happen.
