Splurge Spending

October 2nd, 2017 at 06:31 am

I certainly didn't like waking up to the news of carnage in Las Vegas. I know several of our own are frequent visitors -- I hope everyone in our group is safe and sound, and my heart goes out to the injured and families of the victims.

Yesterday I did my splurge spending for the month. I bought an Amazon Fire tablet for $54 -- it will be delivered tomorrow. My other splurge was $40 to attend a professional workshop. I don't expect I will be working any more, but the conference happens to be taking place in my suburb, and one of the tracks is being led by an old friend I would like to see again. So I guess I am going mostly for the social aspect.

I did not make the run to Jewel yesterday because my DIL needed to use my car. No great loss.

My other spending was $1.50 for laundry. I need to do one more load of towels, and then I will be caught up.

Today is pizza day at Planet Fitness. I'll try to make it there, but I will probably be watching the boys after school, so I may miss that window of opportunity. No matter, I need to go to the gym anyway, pizza or not. I took yesterday off, because I stretched too enthusiastically on Saturday, and my legs were really hurting yesterday. They still hurt today, but they are better. I have to remember to stretch very gently. My legs are so sensitive.

Forgot to say -- I also paid my annual condo insurance -- $206 -- it was withdrawn yesterday. It doesn't come from variables. Variables are at 38% now.

    I believe Banker Gurl was in Vegas this weekend. I hope she's okay...

    The whole Vegas thing is so scary. DH wondered how the guy could get that many guns and that much ammunition to his room without anyone noticing. Guess he put a do not disturb sign on the door so the housekeeping staff didn't go in and notice all the guns and ammo.

    Hope you like your Kindle. I had one before I was gifted an iPad and have been an avid e-reader ever sinceSmile I like the bigger font and the library lends on Kindle format.

    I tol am praying for the families of those lost as well as our community 🙏🏾

    I'm wondering why would Planet Fitnesss order pizza?

  6. CB in the City Says:

    Amber, it's company-wide. Planet Fitness has a pizza day and a bagel day each month. I think it is just a good will thing, and certainly an attention-getter. Some folks are "shocked" by it but I seriously doubt that the people who protest never eat pizza or bagels.
