4:20 Blog

The time is a coincidence and I used it as a title instead of the title I had in mind all weekend. The Sleepend. I’m still not sure which one I prefer but spell check certainly prefers the one that’s a real word. Actually a 420 isn’t a word of course.

I’m sleepy. This is an expected side effect of not doing a drug that normally keeps you awake. I don’t crave it in any way except that I’m tired and probably will be for a little while yet. I slept to the 7:00 a.m. alarm this morning and got my recycles out but I probably could have put in a little bit of extra effort and taken his out as well since they weren’t already there. I’ve only seen this happen twice before. No. Once before. Twice in total. He doesn’t usually miss recycle day. I looked around and couldn’t obviously find plastics or paper.

He also missed the rather important task of making the pig stew for the week. There is none which means tonight either I wait and he comes home and makes some or I improvise and make a less healthy dog food / breakfast cereal / pig grain recipe.

I’ve done it before but not frequently. I have no idea whether pigs have the taste ability of sweetness. I certainly believe that the pig food with banana peels is much preferred over other additions I’ve tried. The banana flavor and taste but especially the aroma gets him up and walking quicker than other things. I’ve ordered groceries today and paid the last bit of last month’s power bill. Groceries will include bananas.

Felt good to pay last month’s bill even though I know in 3 days I’ll receive this month’s power bill. What’s the one I can’t really afford unless I lock out with a side hustle. Last month I had a client pay an extra $300 for work, just to help pay the basic bills but this month the invoicing is lower than ever. Definitely my lowest month of the year it seems but it should be able to pay everything but the hydro bill.

Sometimes I slip and call it hydro. That’s what we call it here in Ontario but most of it call it the electric bill or the power bill. It got the name Hydro because it’s mostly powered by Niagara Falls which is water / hydro.

In any case I’m able to pay all the bills but that one this month and it carries into next month. I do my very best not to let it go 2 months because then it becomes less manageable. It’s all always the the case. When a bill passes over into the next month it’s danger time. That’s how I lost my Bell Canada TV and my Rogers cell phone and head to scramble hard to pay a $1,500 power bill earlier this year. I now do my very best to not let that happen again but it’s tough when your income is less than your output. Something that could be solved if I make one simple phone call but I don’t.

That frustrates me but I still don’t make that call.

The call asking for help. Assistance with my mental health. Assistance with my financial woes. Distance with understanding what assistance is available to me a fantastic call I don’t make. I don’t know why. It’s just the way I let it be.
