I thought that once summer ended, my blogging hiatus would end. But alas, the slump is still going strong. I’ve had zero desire to pose for photos! What is wrong with me?! :P
It’s such a beautiful day out, 16c! A far cry from the chilly winter weather we’ve been experiencing lately. I’ll be enjoying a few warmer days this week as I’m going to Florida on Thursday!
The flights are booked – Sean and I will be staying in Tampa for a week. This time I’m bringing my Gravol so I won’t throw-up four times while attempting to deep-sea fish… We’ll get there just in time for American Thanksgiving and Black Friday. After all the horror stories, I’m not sure I want to step foot in a mall Friday, but we’ll see. How have your Black Friday shopping experiences been? Is it worth it?
I’ve been trying to stay on a budget – documenting every penny I spend and earn to better analyze my habits. Living away from home and not making a ton of money means I need to be more money conscious. I made a very hard decision this past weekend – to not go to a Scrabble tournament I was very much looking forward to. With entry, car, gas, hotel and food – the two day tournament could have easily cost me upwards of $350. Instead I picked up an extra shift and made over $250 in tips. So needless to say, I was happy with my decision. It meant almost a $600 difference in my bank account! Yay for sacrifices!
Is there anything you do to help keep track of your spending habits?
Hope to post again soon!
