Gift Bought

June 10th, 2015 at 06:16 am

I'm always late sending my Florida DIL her birthday gift. This time I decided to be early. I got on Amazon yesterday and picked out one of her wish list items. It was perfume, which I've never thought about buying for her before! I hope Amazon is very, very good about packaging such an item. It was $45.

So now my variables budget is 45% spent; ten days in.

And I'm going out to dinner tomorrow night. And I have another birthday. What a month.

Got my free dinner at last night's golf outing. I sold raffle tickets and checked out the silent auction winners. No golf for me; I'd rather stay inside! Though it was a beautiful day. I got done around 8 and it was a nice ride home; no traffic.

Unfortunately, as it often happens when my schedule is disrupted, I couldn't sleep last night. Coffee with dinner probably didn't help either. When I have a day like this, I just tackle it in chunks. Okay, you can get up and go to the couch. Okay, you can take a shower and get dressed. Okay, just walk to the station and then you can ride. Okay, walk to work and then you can have coffee. You get the drift.

Luckily, I have only one meeting today, and it's not a scary one. Not that there is such a thing as a scary meeting any more when I only have -- drum roll -- 13 work days left!

    Lovely! What a thoughtful MIL you are!

    How's the rest of your week looking for lunch? Or next week? This week kind of got away from me -- first week that everyone is off of school and home! Let me know. Smile

    This week is pretty full, but next week is wide open! Any day is fine.

    Hurrah for the only 13 days left Smile!! You are such a nice MIL--my MIL hasn't ever given me a gift! I wouldn't worry about the packaging--I sent my grandma some perfume a couple months ago and it arrived just fine

    I couldn't sleep last night either. I got some books at the library last night and made it halfway through one trying to read myself to sleep. Better sleep for us both!

    I got to sleep okay last night, but woke up wide eyed at 5 a.m. ... My alarm is set for 6:30. Not happy.

    Congrats on being so close to the finish line!
