Using the Visual Quickstart book on PHP and MySQL, I’m teaching myself PHP (and MySQL). A client wants a shopping cart in February, and I want to know PHP before I start digging into Zencart.
I’ve been building websites for 5 years now, and I have to get over this hump. Clients want shopping carts. Most shopping carts are PHP.
...means denying myself now. I really, really want a house in Cherry Valley, California, where I can get enough freeze hours to grow cherries and apples and get the occasional snowfall in the winter. Way cool. Snow. During summer, it can get up to 113 around here, so snowfall is so ahhhhhhhh….
It feels like I’m pulling out my checkbook, debit card, or credit card every time I turn around. NO, NO, NO! I’m a sweets addict, and that adds up. I’m not huge on Starbucks, so that doesn’t feel like deprivation, but give me my candy, cookie, cake, or pie.
My son also LOVES to spend money, and he works at Marshall’s. He loves his gadgets. I’ve asked him to stop telling me about stuff on sale.
It’s back to basics for me. I’m glad to find this site and this group!
I need to stop wasting money.
I’m a candy addict. It adds up.
