Ugh. That’s pretty crappy. But I have to keep in mind that most of that was budgeted for. So I shouldn’t complain too much.
We had to buy my guy’s birth certificate as he needs a passport for our honeymoon. I already have mine and it’s good for a few more years. I’ve never really used it unless you count going to Canada as using it. But now I’m glad that I do have mine as it is one less expense for the wedding.
I had to buy another lunch pail on Saturday as my zipper on my old one fell off again and there was a few holes in it. I’ve had it for a year and I have used it almost every single work day so it got a lot of use. I went for one this time that is a little bigger and sturdier. I also had to buy new ice packs. Joy. But at least I’m not eating out every day right?
Speaking of food–that $5 purchase on Sunday? Was for a pie pan. I made a fudge pie from scratch, crust and all. Pretty yummy. I think I like to make my goodies from scratch as it usually means that I eat less of them just due to all the work that has to go in to making them. So when I want them I have to think: do I really want to go through all that fuss? Answer is typically no as I’m a pretty lazy person. (said with a straight face of course)
I had a pretty good weekend. Draining but good. I went swimming Saturday, went for a run on Sunday and did some housework and gardening. How was yours?
