Back home again

March 17th, 2008 at 03:42 pm

Finally got home from my trip to Florida last night at 10. I drove straight through. I was on the road for 14 hours, including stops.

I spent less going home than I intended to -- for one thing, I was planning to stop for the night, but since I felt awake and alert, and since my dog is very uncomfortable in motels, I just kept on plugging. Also, I intended to have a "real" dinner to refresh myself for the last haul, but at the junction where I stopped, everything was too busy. I ended up buying snacks at the gas station, and getting back on the road. Altogether I spent about $97 on gas and $14 on food.

When I got home, I of course had a lot of mail to go through. The nice thing is I had about $184 in checks -- both of my state tax returns, some rebate checks, a property tax refund -- nice surprise. Bills, too, of course, but I'll deal with those tomorrow.

Today I went to the library and paid a 90c fine, then grocery-shopped. Bascially I bought $27 in groceries and also spent $23 for coffee which I will give as gifts to my sister and cousin, who were looking in on my cat while I was gone.

It's good to be home. I slept like a rock last night, and I hope I do tonight, too!
