Plans, plans, plans

October 29th, 2013 at 08:59 am

Yesterday I did one load of laundry for $1.50, and I sent $100 to my sister for her 70th birthday.

It's a little more than two weeks till payday, but it looks like I am on target to transfer $800 to savings. Fingers crossed that nothing comes up!

I have decided to take Halloween Day off so I can go trick-or-treating with the grandsons. I have a dentist's appointment that day as well. So tempted to put on some fake vampire teeth, but would not spend the money, even for a good laugh!

I won't have to take vacation time, as I still have a comp day coming for my work during Homecoming.

BFF is coming to visit this weekend! If she doesn't cancel, which she is prone to do! Her birthday is next week, so I will have to get her present together. I have a book and bookmark ready to wrap, but I think there is something in the gift stash as well. It seems I picked up something during the year -- she is so easy to buy for, since she likes and appreciates thrift-store finds. I wish everyone on my list were that way!

I am also in the throes of planning our annual girls' weekend. I just made the reservations for tea at the Drake Hotel -- a tradition. And my friend in Hyde Park has offered to let us stay at her house. That will be fun -- it is an old house, new to her. I haven't seen it yet, but I'm sure it's very posh. We haven't talked about it yet, but we may do lunch at the Grand Luxe -- that seems to be becoming a tradition, too! The rest will be shopping -- but I do a good job of just enjoying the scenery while they shop. We are good friends, but we are definitely in different economic tiers!

And of course I'm also thinking about Thanksgiving. It is always at my brother's, but I always have to call and make sure it's still on. I don't know what we would do if he said no! It looks like my sister and my Florida son will not be coming. We will still have a good-sized group, with all my nieces and nephews and their children. And I have to think about how to handle my other son's birthday, which falls right on Thanksgiving Day. I'm sure my DIL has some ideas!

    I'm sure just telling the hygienist/dentist about your vampire teeth idea would give them a chuckle. It did me!

    I've got some glow-in-the-dark vampire teeth. I'd totally send you some if you mentioned sooner! (Overage from a school project thing last Halloween - it is possible I purged those - I don't remember off the top of my head. I had a ton leftover since they came in a pack of 20 or 25).

    We were talking of using some of those teeth for my eldest's costume this year. We were just talking about it this morning. Guess I better make sure we still have them.

    Sounds like fun plans!
