Back from Girlfriend Getaway

May 7th, 2017 at 06:11 pm

I got home last night. We had a wonderful time together. We stayed two nights in a charming little house, ate a lot of good food, got facials at a spa, and did some shopping on the town's main street. And the cost, I think, was not too bad. I paid $22 for my share of the gas, $98 for restaurants, $131 for lodging, $48 for the spa, and $71 for the shopping. A grand total of $322. Another small expense, which I'm not counting as a vacation cost, was $16 to replace my phone charger for the car. My old one stopped working, and I really needed it for the navigation.

The only downer was that it rained the whole time and it was cold, so we didn't do the river walk and didn't do the exploring we thought we would do.

My shopping was $56 for dishes at an antique shop, $12 for a necklace, and $3 for a gift. I was delighted to find the dishes in my pattern --Johnson Brothers Willow -- and I bought 4 fruit bowls, 2 cereal bowls and 3 plates. And I even got a discount for paying in cash.

Today I'm very tired, and I'm taking it easy and de-stressing. I just did a $1.50 load of laundry, but that's pretty much my work for the day!

Today's menu: Breakfast - Sausage biscuit, clementine. Lunch - PB&J sandwich. Dinner - Mac & cheese, stewed tomatoes.

I did go to the gym this morning, so I'm getting back in the routine.

We are already planning the next one!
