Back to work
What a weekend!! It was good, but pretty high stress and exhausting. My cousin got married and most of my family was out here to visit. So many people, more drama than necessary, but it was great to see everyone and relax on the beach. If I wanted a real wedding, I’d want one just like hers–right on the ocean, smallish, but very nice.
Now, back to work, and even worse, time to get on the ball for my class for my Masters, first homework due in a few days. The class should really be quite basic, but it’ll still take time.
I’m so not in the mood for work. I contemplated taking a sick day (mental health!), but I have a lot to do. They give us too many sick days, more than I’ll ever use, and I wish I could trade them in for vacation days, even at half the hours.
Total cost of the weekend: I paid $71 for a car rental for four days (great deal) and let my parents and sisters use my car. I paid about $50 in gas, and $22 in meals. My parents covered the hotel for 3 nights and all the other meals. I’m only deducting the $71 from my travel budget, since I probably would have spent that other money either way. I’m not sure the balance of my travel budget yet, but it’ll be above zero by the end of the month. I don’t anticipate much travel spending for quite some time now (whew).
I also spent $60 at Target on jewelry, tights, a purse and some socks. I intended on buying the jewelery to match my dress, I needed the socks, and wanted the tights. It just adds up so quickly! I knew there was a reason I don’t go to that store anymore!
