Folks, it’s been quite a week, and it’s time to estimate our weekends.
To be honest, I haven’t given much thought about this weekend, which is unlike me because I like to plan ahead, and because my calendar says I’m going to be busy the entire time. There are several birthday parties happening (or not happening and being rescheduled depending on whether lower Manhattan regains power soon), I’m helping to clean up a park and playground on Saturday morning (also: shout outs to you Billfold readers whom I happened to meet at last night’s volunteer thing! We had a crazy whirlwind ride into the darkness downtown), and on Sunday, I’m going out to support a few friends who are running in the New York City Marathon, which has proven to be a very divisive topic as the city continues to recover from the hurricane, and may not end up happening. Even with all that going on, I’m going to attempt to spend less than $100 this weekend because the holidays are quickly approaching, and I’m going to have to shell out for a flight to be home for the holidays very soon (which I don’t want to think about).
What are your estimates?
