But at least it was a generous splurge rather than a self-indulgent one.  I went out to lunch with DIL and the grandsons on Saturday, and I picked up the check, since it was also the fourth anniversary of her mother's death, and she was feeling a little blue.  My son is traveling, so he wasn't around to prop her up.

I had forgotten how much restaurant prices are rising, so I hope I didn't audibly gulp when the bill was $102 (including tip).  It was just Buffalo Wild Wings, nothing fancy, but it all adds up.  And the boys have big appetites now.

Today I went to the gym and library, and I also stopped at Sam's and filled the tank for $33.  I should have filled up when I was Indiana -- actually, I did try, but I couldn't make the pump work and I gave up and left.  The gas was a lot cheaper there.

I also renewed my AARP membership today ($12).  I had let it lapse, but I think I can get a discount on my phone bill now that I have Consumer Cellular.  I'll have to see if the credit is available retroactively.

Oh, and my tollway pass auto-replenished for $40.  So, with all those things, my variables are already at 41%.
