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.
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!!!!!”
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!
@ATF [Childless person] Can little sis retake the exam if she bombs?
@erinep Well hybernating with books and Irish Creme The internet jammed up on me (see deleted by user comments below) and I had to make it brief.
@pterodactylish Oh no hon! Healing wishes
Tonight: Get the car washed $0 with Dealer coupon because it’s finally over 20 degrees. Workout. Curl up with three books. Saturday: More slumming. Dinner out, maybe $40. Sunday: Church. Erect very large Christmas trees in gathering area. Buy a few gift cards for fundraising, maybe $100. Buy food for Thanksgiving hosting. $40.
