4 no spend days! How awesome? Granted we didn’t have a lot of money to spend but I”m not letting that affect my mood. Because the old me would have found something to spend–whether it was from a savings fund or a credit card. So I’m happy. Especially as things are going to be tight for the next year or so. Yay for saving for everything under the sun. But at least it will all be paid for without getting us deeper into debt, right?
This weekend was pretty great all things considered. We went out to his parents house and swam on Saturday. I also got to hold my baby niece. She’s such a sweet little girl! Plus, I got the news that my brother and nephews should be out this way on Thursday. I haven’t seen them in forever so I’m hoping that they can stay for a bit. The only issue is that I’ll probably have to go buy something for dinner–we planned only two people meals as we had no entertainment plans. But I’ll cross that bridge when I get to it.
I also went on a movie date with my fiance to see the new Batman movie. I liked it-I’m glad we went. We were undecided up until the point of us leaving. But we both found it worth it. We went to the matinee and bought a large popcorn. We snuck in our own drinks but I wasn’t willing to spend $4 on a bottle of water. Especially when I have it at home for free! (Well mostly free now) After we went to the movie, we both wanted to watch the previous 4 batman movies (not the last two but the four before that). No one had the last three (we have the first one) and they weren’t on Netflix instant que but they were at our local video store! We were able to rent them for free as we had credit from some other rentals. So it was a nice, geeky day which was good as I wasn’t feeling the greatest.
How was your weekend?
