Dinner was free!

September 25th, 2013 at 07:00 am

My ex paid for the dinner last night -- he must have been feeling expansive! My DIL's aunt and uncle joined us and they were treated, too, so it must have been quite a bill.

So I have wiggle room in my budget again.

It was a great dinner. The restaurant only uses locally grown produce and meat. I had an "appetizer" of chicken and waffles, with a side dish of carmelized carrots, and I was stuffed to the gills. Of course, I had indulged a little in the batter-fried cheese curds that were ordered for the table, and I had a hard cider, too. When the group went for frozen custard afterwards, I didn't even want any.

My granddaughter is walking at only ten months. She is quite a headstrong and determined young lady. It will be fascinating watching her grow up!

Today my son is borrowing my car -- since I take public transportation, it only makes sense. He will bring it back tonight, as I have to drive into the city tomorrow.

Tomorrow is the conference. I got everything done yesterday except printing out the registration lists, which I will do today. Then I will have to remember all the stuff to take -- the lists, the name tags, the speaker gifts, the checkbook -- whew!

On Saturday I will go out to breakfast with my son's family and take them to the airport. Such as short visit, and they have so many other things to do and people to see! I will have to be sure to work visits to Florida into my budget!
