On Thanksgiving Estimate/Open Thread

I’m in the office today. But tonight I am cleaning, cleaning, cleaning, making cranberry sauce and prepping for hosting tomorrow. I also have a few last minute groceries to get. $10 Thursday: Hosting the meal but we’re just having immediate family and we all like each other, so it shouldn’t be very stressful. Friday-Sunday: Hopefully napping and vegging out. Maybe one $40 dinner out. I’m waiting on a new credit card to be delivered so unless it makes it before the weekend is out I won’t be spending any more money. $50? But let’s see how that turns out. Muchas smoochas everyone.

On Chatting About A New Era

Sooo many conflicted emotions. I'm glad you're not leaving us completely and that you will still be here to comment. I’m glad you got a spiffy new job. I look down on you for being a wuss about cold weather but happy you found a town that will work for your family. But if Ester, Nicole, Josh or Mike leave completely I will be inconsolable. I will take to just sitting in my house, drinking cheap vodka and yelling: “It’s Thursday what one thing am I supposed to dooooo!!!!!”

On Monday Check-In

Didn’t spend as much time relaxing as I would have liked this weekend, we got some last minute changes requested on a project so I was semi-working all weekend. I wasn’t nose to the grindstone the whole time, I’d program, do something else while it was running. Go back, check and rewrite things . But still it’s not totally time off either. Friday: Got car washed for $0 as planned. Did some chores and worked. Saturday: Chores and working. We went out for dinner. Planned $40 but spent $55. The darn dessert and drinks menu undermine us every time. Picked up some beer for $16. Sunday: Erected trees at church as planned. The gift card ordering was not this week as I’d thought so $100 not spent. I spent an unplanned $10 on a tree topper as the usual topper A. Could not be found and B. I remembered I nearly broke my neck last year trying to get that thing balanced on top. So I ran out quick and got a new topper that was easier and safer to hang. Went home and worked some more. So under $75.

@erinep "$6 for a drink during the intermission, if we remember to take our theater sippy cups (you have to have their lidded cup to take a drink back in the theater with you). " Excellent tip. Have fun tonight. Stolen beer!? Booooo Costco thief!
