On Friday Estimate

We're going to dinner tonight, so probably $40 (burgers and beer). Tomorrow morning we're running some errands and getting some gravel for the driveway (just a ton or two), probably $40. Our university have a pretty big home football game tomorrow afternoon, so we'll be watching from home and already have beer and food ready to go. Sunday will probably be a "work outside, don't leave the property" day, so hopefully no spending. All told, I'm hoping for a weekend total of $80-$100 between the two of us.

On Trying to Pay Off Debt and Falling Off the Wagon (As We Do Sometimes)

@lisaf Seriously. Mr. McDillet and I were just discussing the fact that we make literally 4x what we did when we first got together (granted, almost 10 years ago) yet don't seem to actually have more money at all.

On Darling I'm a 1 Thing Dressed As a Daydream

@deathcabforcutes Drawers ARE the worst! Somehow the motion of pulling out and then closing a drawers expends five times the energy of doing the laundry itself.

On Darling I'm a 1 Thing Dressed As a Daydream

My one thing was to pay my endless $10 medical bills from the various follow ups from a June broken ankle. I did that over lunch, so now my one thing is to put away my damn clothes when I get home, which invariably guilts Mr. McDillet into putting his clothes away. We take them out of the dryer and fold them nicely and place them on top of our respective dressers until there are teetering towers of clothes throughout the bedroom. Why is it so hard for both of us to just put the damn clothes away?!

On Paying for Theaters vs Waiting for Netflix

@Theestablishment Yep, I am totally seeing Interstellar in a few weeks, followed by the new Hobbit.

On Paying for Theaters vs Waiting for Netflix

This is terrible, but if I'm seeing it on the big screen, I kind of want explosions and dragons and outer space? I would really prefer to see a comedy or non-actiony drama on my couch, but you make a convincing point!

On Love and Nostagia for the Cheaper Stuff

@DarlingMagpie We had English muffin pizzas all the time. I still make them semi-regularly. Mr. McDillet does not understand the allure.

On A Review of Pizza Hut's Nostalgia Pizza

Oh man, I made this recipe for the first time last weekend and it tastes like your best memories of Pizza Hut: http://www.seriouseats.com/recipes/2013/01/foolproof-pan-pizza-recipe.html It's really easy (no kneading or rolling out dough) but does take some planning (overnight rise).
