@Markovaa YES. Favorite book of all time.
$50,000 per annum is like $860,000 in 2014 money, though. An awesome gesture, but not as awesome as it looks at face value.
@Allison FWIW, Papyrus tends to have a fairly good selection of same-sex wedding cards, if there's one of those near you.
@PicNic :( Are you feeling any better today?
@Allison Me too, but I guess that's what happens when you make it all the way to 3rd and goal and still fail to score.
@samburger The couch will be worth it, though. I have yet to regret a single furniture purchase, no matter how expensive.
Friday: Within an hour after making my estimate, I bought opera tickets ($110) and subsequently readjusted my estimate upwards. Saturday: Went to a baby shower (free). My husband bought groceries ($47) but not wine; my StitchFix arrived early, and I'm sending back four items but kept a super comfy pair of jeans ($58 if you don't count the $20 "styling fee" that I already paid). Sunday: Slept until noon because I forgot to set an alarm, and because my husband neglected to tell me what time it was both of the times he tried to wake me, so each time I fell back to sleep assuming it couldn't possibly be later than 9:30. (By some great magic I was able to fall asleep at a reasonable hour and wake up on time this morning, so my sleep schedule is not as irrevocably messed up as I'd expected it to be.) Also, the Eagles lost. Not really how I'd hoped my Sunday would go, but at least I didn't spend any money. Initial estimate: $125 Revised estimate: $250 Actual spending: $215
@andnowlights Yeah, I'd been meaning to buy the tickets all week before a discount promotion expired, but kept forgetting. So it was today or never. At least they're good seats!
...I just spent $110 on opera tickets, so I'm gonna go ahead and round that estimate up to $250. *facepalm*
