I successfully remembered to send an email I'd been forgetting. That and pickout an outfit for tomorrows office Christmas party.
@ronswansonluva Happy Birthday!
I had a fairly high earning job for two summers in college (moved away after) and I took $3k and invested it in a mutual fund because that seemed safe and stocks were confusing. 4 years later it is worth $5k. Get rich quick? No, but nice safety net to have now and possible start to a future-home fund.
Forgot to check in before Annapolis, but had a good weekend! Friday I had a comp day, so I vacuumed, rode (my landlady and I had a pleasant ride together, shockingly!), worked out and did some laundry. The boyfriend and I had a quiet night in, watching Bad Santa. Saturday we were up early-ish for an equine Christmas parade. There were some free snacks at an open tailgate there, hosted by a local magazine. I bought a $10 ornament for my parents at their Christmas market. Went to plasma (+$50, I forgot their holiday bonus scheme had started) and then back home to ride and spent $3 on coffee on the way. That night the boyfriend bought us sushi at a new place in town, which seems to be also the best place in town now for sushi. Saturday's film selection was Love Actually which my boyfriend expected to hate and rather enjoyed. Sunday I spent $30 to foxhunt. I made some new friends, saw zero foxes and got lost in the woods with 3 of my new friends while heading in 'early'. We were the last ones in, oops. I think I actually made $7 this weekend? But I finalized plans to make a short New Years trip so I am about to be a $200 ticket and $30 present poorer than I was before.
I have a comp day from work, so I plan to be a very productive person today! Plan to spend $0 because I am only leaving the house to hang out with my boyfriend, and I know we are stocked up on drinks. Saturday we are headed to a Christmas parade, where I hope to spend $10-$20 on something for my mom. I have to go to plasma too, +$35. Sunday I think I will foxhunt again, $35 (already made some cookies I can bring to share and have booze). Monday I have a day of PTO I plan to spend in Annapolis, but I will check in before spending any money :)
I mailed something I sold on ebay that I didn't mail from AC because I didn't want to just throw random crap into my coworker's car. In the end I drove so I could have brought as much crap as I wanted.
Greetings from Atlantic City! Friday I worked from home and decided to spend $3 on coffee just to leave the house. That night I rode and then went to a party. I brought chips, but brought home a ton of pasta the host didn't want...so that ended well for me! Saturday I ran errands for my landlords, went to plasma (+$35)did yoga, thought about riding, but decided to hide inside instead. My boyfriend was flying home that night, but missed his flight, so I said screw it to going into town (that plus rain). Watched Call the Midwife, made cookies for next week, painted my nails. Sunday- My boyfriend and I ate at a diner once he was in town- he treated. We walked around a bit because the rain finally stopped. That night I drove to AC, which was a surprise since I thought my coworker was driving. NBD, I get 50 cents a mile so the gas is basically free. Looks like a grand old $3 spent- thanks rain and boyfriend!
@ECW I can only assume bourbon and rye?!
@PicNic I think he will love the quilt!
