This blog has been dwindling to mostly a list of goals and to-do lists and the like. Perhaps the occasional shopping post.
I’m not sure what to do about it. Accept it? Set up a reasonable (but consistent!) schedule? Take a hiatus until life settles down? (However, I’m a firm believer that life is always busy, and if something is important to you, you make time for it.)
Anyway, here’s a few financial things of note that have happened lately.
Had an AMAZINGLY great weekend in my hometown. Until today when I missed my (budget airline) flight and had to book a brand new ticket on a different airline. Non-direct. My mom actually picked up the tab, but I gave her $100, and think I should likely send her another $100. I don’t have to, but I do think she would appreciate it, and it feels like the grown up thing to do. I make and save plenty that it seem stingy not to. (The ticket was $330. . .) By the way, I”m never going to speak of this incidident again, and told T that we are going to pretend it never happened (except take away a expensive valuable lesson about budget airlines and being early, which I usually am).
Bought tickets for a concert next month with a new friend: $58 (and she still owes me for the same)
Planned the first birthday party for myself in several years, starting at our apartment then just going out. I did that mostly because I don’t want people to be loud too late — neighbors! We’ll probably spend money on some snacks and drinks. I didn’t say BYOB, but I assume some people will and others won’t.
Signed up for the fitness bootcamp after all. I’ll be paying tomorrow! It’s quite a huge money commitment for someone who claims gyms aren’t worth their monthly fee (!), but I think it’ll be interesting to try something new.
Debated whether or not I can pull off the colored wedding shoe trend, or if I’d just regret it. I think I could do it. . . Ok, this isn’t personal finance (until I buy the dang shoe), but still. What do you think?
