Don't You Love Fridays?

May 24th, 2013 at 07:02 am

It's a whole different feeling even coming to work on Friday. It's .... happiness!

I finally connected with my son last night and he and the fam will drive me to pick up my car on Saturday. My DIL is in a race in the morning, so it will be after that. We will find some nice place to eat as a treat/payment. I saw that a restaurant I used to frequent is still there (ironically, I used to live pretty close to the area where the car was towed). It was famous for seafood. I wonder if it's still any good. The tow guy also recommended a Mexican restaurant in the area.

After talking with the service department again, I have decided to wait on the muffler. Nothing is loose or in danger of breaking -- it's just something on the horizon. I'll wait a bit and let the dust clear financially first.

I have two more graduations coming up -- a young cousin, and my student worker. I will be writing checks for both of them, not sure on amounts yet. But I bought the cards this morning - WHAT? - $15! Lesson to self -- pay attention when you are buying Papyrus cards at the station. Or better yet, get nice cards somewhere else. Well, they are very nice cards. I do love the brand; wish they were not so high.

I also bought breakfast for $4, having nothing tote-able at home. I am covered for lunch and dinner, though. And tomorrow morning I can scramble some eggs before I get my car. I'll go grocery shopping as soon as I get home.

Yesterday I got next month's train pass for $105, saving $30 by using vouchers from work.

I also made a $40 credit card payment to attend a workshop, but I will be reimbursed.

Happy Friday everyone!

    Wow, $15? I must admit, I wouldn't have bought them if I got to the counter and they said they were going to be $15... Did you consider no getting them, or waiting and getting them somewhere else? I understand if you needed them at work that day and had forgotten, but for "future" cards it seems like you could have gotten a better price.

    I like that brand as well!

    I always look at the back of the cards for the price. I can barely justify anything over $2, since I know it will just get thrown out or recycled.

    Enjoy seeing your family!

    They are pretty cards. but like CCF, I've given up many purchased cards and have DD make ours now. People like them better, and they do end up in the recycling with those $5 ones. I also bought some cute stationery and often just write in those.

    Glad the car situation worked out. Have a nice weekend.

    I bought them at the station this morning between trains and it was very early. My mind was somewhere else. I didn't look at the price and didn't look at the receipt until I got to work. Untypical behavior, and I have no explanation. Guess I should refrain from early-morning shopping!

    It's even a better feeling on the Friday of a long weekend! Enjoy your weekend!

    Fridays are something special...it makes you anticipate a weekend and good things. I am sure the cards were a shock, ouch!
