I didn't estimate this weekend, but here goes. I was puppy sitting so didn't have an opportunity to spend a bunch on bars and taxis. Friday: reloaded starbucks card, $10, $26 at whole foods for wine and cheese and produce so I wouldn't order takeout. Saturday: I don't think I left my apartment? Maybe to Starbucks? I can't remember. That puppy required all of my attention and energy. Sunday: Stayed in with puppy all morning. Roommates watched puppy while I went to a cookbook release party at Center on Halsted for Chicago Diner, a veggie restaurant in Chicago. Spent $20 for the cookbook, quickly ate snacks, then spent $11 at Whole Foods downstairs for PBnJ supplies and some fruit. Grabbed beer on the way home, $8, and ordered pizza, $26, for a friend who came over later because it had been four days watching a puppy who figured out early how to get out of her cage and I told him, "I might kill her, I need supervision." Of course she was an angel the entire time he was over so I looked even crazier.
TEXAS FOREVER. TIM RIGGINS PICTURES FOREVER.
I did many things! -Called my insurance agent and had new cards faxed bc I lost the ones he mailed. -Mailed the insurance cards to my sister who primarily drives my car. -Put in an expense request for $600 from work (it was approved). -Put in a request for a work phone so I can access email/calendar while out of the office (also approved). -Set up a reservation for my birthday brunch. -Emailed friends about birthday brunch. I feel so light!
@calamity yay IUD!!!
I do this! My favorite one is "My Friends Get Married" because it's helped me be less annoyed when wedding expenses come up.

I have things this week! I needed a new credit card bc it's lost in my apartment which has been great, but now I need it so I reordered that yesterday after putting it off for weeks. Next thing is to request new insurance cards. Calling this afternoon. Promise!
@ThatJenn great idea!! I recently put my stamps in that magical weird place that you put things so you don't forget where they are and then 15 minutes later you've already forgotten.
@polka dots vs stripes @bgprincipessa the key is to buy stamps THE SAME DAY or you will never send them out.
@kentuckygal What's October?
