Weekend Recap

February 6th, 2017 at 02:28 pm

I got home earlier today. I am so, so tired. I didn't sleep well last night. I am getting so bad about not sleeping when I'm in a strange bed. That is to say, a bed that's not my own. The bed was quite comfortable.

The weekend was great fun. I had lunch with K before I left town at a funky diner kind of place -- spent $12 for a chicken parmesan sandwich with fries. Then I got on the road, and after a few passes finally got on the expressway (roads were torn up, lanes blocked off). I ended up driving around in very scary parts of the city before I was finally sorted out. I was so relieved to get on the skyway.

My days with BFF were spent in our typical fashion. We hit THREE Goodwills. I spent $15 on gifts, $2 on hair gel, $24 on housewares (including a new comforter for my bed) and $54 on clothing. I wasn't expecting to spend so much on clothing, but they were having a half-price sale. I got two pairs of work pants, a blazer, two work tops, leggings, three cardigans, a skirt, and five T-shirts. All in like-new condition. I feel very good about the expenditure.

We also saw two movies ($7 apiece), since it's Oscar season -- "Lion" and "Hidden Figures." Loved both of them. And I spent $56 on eating out, as well as $25 on gas. The eating out included the major portion of a 14-inch pizza which I brought home to give to my son's family, since it's their favorite pizza and it's not available around here (in the land of pizza -- go figure).

BFF gave me a box of books as well as some individual servings of applesauce and a bag of almonds that she isn't going to use. I gave her a big container of raisins, which I had bought and then realized I already had the exact same container, unopened, at home.

It's back to work tomorrow, but I'm glad I had this little holiday.
