On Friday Estimate

I'm prepared to spend all of the money. My flight to Spain (!!!) leaves in a few hours. I'm hoping to spend less than $600 over the 10 days of my trip, but who knows what will even happen! Also, it's a paid vacation, so my money attitude is pretty blasé to be honest. /not-even-humble brag See everyone after Labor Day!!

@PicNic You know, I've done a lot of thinking about @annecara's comment about "clean out the drawers of my vanity" as a euphemism / metaphor in the last week. I think there is really something there...

On Monday Check-in

I estimiated $60, I think. It was less than that due to a very unfortunate hangover that consumed all of Sunday... My mom came to visit / stay with me Friday night and Saturday. We made dinner together, which she bought the groceries for. Saturday, we lounged around and ate breakfast at home. Eventually, we went to the local independent bookstore which was having a national bookstore day celebration with free champagne and cake! I wanted to get a book for my upcoming travels which my mom bought for me. Thanks mom! We did some more random shopping and got some sandwiches for lunch. Again, she paid for everything, and it was so delicious. She left around 8pm and I ended up going to my "Cheers" bar where some friends were hanging out after work. I ended up being there until like 3 and getting quite too intoxicated, but also spent only $11. Thanks for all of those free drinks! I made a questionable dude choice and then the two of us drank a bottle of wine at my house and were up until like 5. Sunday, I drove that dude back to his car and then promptly fell back asleep watching The Birdcage. I woke up at 4 (!) which was crazy and not a thing I normally do. I showered, finally ate some food, and then went to the movie in the park thing. I spent $4 on a kombucha because hangover and $5 donation for the movie. I was back in bed by 11 and slept like a baby. I'm pissed about losing Sunday, but I did only spend $20. So... yay low spend?

Also, now I am imagining what compound interest would literally look like in the magical world. Every now and then a galleon would suddenly start shaking and pop into two, or something.
