Oh, dear!

July 12th, 2010 at 11:23 am

My no-spend Saturday went well. I did not spend anything and I did not drive anywhere. I only left the house once when I went for a short walk to mail back a Netflix movie and get some exercise. And I accomplished a few things. I painted a bathroom shelf (which I've intended to do for more than a year) and I framed a garage sale print with a garage sale frame and hung it. A nice, classy-looking decoration for only $6. And I did some much-needed cleaning.

But on Sunday I went up to see my DS's family and take them all out for lunch for DIL's birthday. We went to California Pizza, and even though we shared a salad, two pizzas and two desserts, it was $76 with tip. That fed three adults and a little one. But it was delicious, and I think we all really enjoyed ourselves.

Then, today, apparently not yet done with eating out, I went to Panera for lunch ($7). I don't know, when lunchtime rolled around I just had to fly the coop, even though I have a Lean Cuisine and extra veggies in the fridge.

I didn't do any grocery shopping this weekend, so that will have to happen tonight.

More upcoming expenses: dental work for my cat and a haircut for me.

    isn't it funny, those little things that we put off for aaaages that we finally decide to do and then think 'well, geez, that didn't take very much effort!'
    Big Grin I often have days where I will get five or six of those tasks done and then wonder why I put them off for so long. I guess we need those days with the extra motivation boost sometimes.
