@crenb This made me realize I've been putting off finding a new dentist for WAY too long. Okay, today has 2 Things.
Oh man, my 1 Thing *would* have been to remember my checkbook tomorrow so that I can finally mail in the Totes umbrella that sadly broke in the wind forever ago. But since I may (definitely will) be playing hooky tomorrow from work, that'll be next week's 1 Thing. If I remember. Okay so my real 1 Thing is to pack for my fun weekend at the lake as soon as I get home tonight. But after happy hour. So, drunk packing. That's my Thing.
My 1 thing is to finally call the doctors on this list of recommendations from friends and schedule a physical and hopefully I will like this doctor and then I can finally have a regular primary care doctor to fix stuff that goes wrong in my body area. Oh, and hopefully get my $3 back from the secretary in my department who "borrowed" it (AKA saw that I had it in my wallet and took it from my hands - WHO DOES THAT?)
This weekend should be fairly low key, which is probably necessary due to the huge expenses incurred during vacation funtime. Friday: Meeting up with a friend for drinks, and then progressing together to meet up with her friends for more drinks. I'm thinking that despite the guarantee for fun, I'll pass out fairly early due to jet lag. Maybe $25 for the whole night. Saturday: Brunch is planned with another friend before she has to head into work, maybe $30. I'll probably just trek somewhere and work on a paper for a while at a coffee shop for the rest of the day, $10 for coffee and possible food items. Oh and a small grocery store run (saving the big one for when I'm near a Trader Joe's next week) - around $30. Sunday: World Cup viewing at Governors Island! Apparently this is supposed to be the most fun ever, with food trucks and other various appealing things. Probably another $30 or so on food and requisite beers for the day. Total estimate is around $125. Yeesh.
@andnowlights @frumious bandersnatch Hahaha well I did get back Monday night so I'm not being super active yet about any sort of unpacking. I keep waking up early, taking two things out and putting them in a pile next to the suitcase, then wandering away and finding something better to do with my time. But maybe piles are their own form of progress?
I'm back from my epic Europe trip, and am now struggling with jet lag. Boo. My one thing is to manage to stay up past 8:30pm tonight, and my other thing is to finally unpack my suitcase and clean up my messy room. Oh and say farewell to the poor lil plant that died while I was away. I'm a bad plant parent. So that's actually 4 things, but they're all related to each other so it's okay.
I can't handle Mega Bus or Bolt Bus anymore - the staff are all so rude! And Mega is astonishingly difficult to get to here in NYC. My usual go-tos are DC2NY and Vamoose. Both are usually $35 (I think they have some fancier buses for a little bit more?). You get free water, wifi, super nice staff, and I've never had a negative incident yet.
@OllyOlly The number of pay periods is actually 26.1 (Source: I do finance for a university and calculate pay CONSTANTLY). So that might account for some degree of discrepancy.
Woo hoo, the weekend is here! Too bad it's rainy and miserable out. Friday: Had to buy breakfast and coffee this morning, $5. Just bought a ticket to the Beach Fossils/Craft Spells show tonight (Northside!), $25. Will probably have a beer or two at the show or after, $15. Saturday: Astoria beer garden! It's a friend's goodbye party, which is sad, and I really hope the weather clears up before we all get there. Will probably end up eating there, and getting a few beers for myself and others, so maybe $50 total? Yeesh, I hope it's not that much. Don't know what the plan is for after, but hopefully it'll be cheap, $20. Sunday: No plans, but maybe brunch ($25) and the gym if I can motivate myself. Let's add another $10 for miscellaneous coffee necessities. Hopefully I'm overestimating, but it's looking like a total of $150 for the weekend.
Can it still count as my 1 thing if I did it yesterday?? I FIIIINALLY went to Bed, Bath, & Beyond to return something that I'd bought over a year ago, with no receipt, and I didn't even have the right credit card with me. And they took it back and now I have mass quantities of store credit. Whoo hoo! My other thing, if that doesn't count, is to book hostels for my Europe trip. It's starting next week - get your booty in gear, self!
