There are a lot of things I wish I could be discussing here today. My hopes that today's election could bring about some kind of change and my thoughts on electronic voting machines after seeing the documentary Hacking Democracy on HBO over the weekend are but two of many issues on my mind of late.
Sadly, the biggest thing on my mind is my personal finances. I don't want to mention many particulars, but I discovered yesterday that Mrs. Geek and I have a large bill to pay. The size of the amount we owe and the source are causing both Mrs. Geek and I some anxiety. It made for some rather tense discussions between us last night.
The situation could be much worse as far as the money is concerned. The last few months have been good, financially. We have some savings to draw on, and this all can be dealt with rather quickly. It knocks us a few months back in terms of what we have saved. I just regret that we have to pay at all... it was all probably avoidable.
