Depending on how you look at it, being alone can either be great or detrimental to doing things. On Saturday I really wanted to go to Avondale Estates for Frühlingsfest, but I got a late start on the morning due to the cold temperatures and by the time I returned home I still had to shower before considering going back out. Though sunny it was still chilly outside, and when I thought about the things I liked doing at Frühlingsfest they revolved around hanging with someone drinking beer while wandering the festival. Not only was I flying solo on Saturday but I was in no mood to drink (shocking, I know), and as you probably guessed sentences ago, I did not attend. I’m a little verklempt that I skipped, because I still wish to support Goethe, but I just couldn’t convince myself to go.
I know that I whine a lot about price increases, especially since I am earning no money, but I am getting worn out by them. This weekend I received an email alerting me that the service behind RoadID will go from $9.99/year to $19.99/year, a 100% increase. While $20/year is affordable, I am miffed at such a significant increase with no explanation of what I will get for the additional fee.
Recall that I whined about the 11% increase in my homeowners insurance recently? It seems that I was whining about a rise last year as well; this was a comment I made on March 14, 2022:
It’s been a (scheduled) expensive day already. I paid my house insurance today, and in reviewing this process see that my policy went up $150 for the same coverage. Argh!
Same as it ever was…
