P is gone again but this time only for 4 weeks and it should be the last, I miss her already. I had an awesome weekend. Super Awesome in fact. These words don't even do it justice.
But let's talk finances. I figured the weekend would be expensive but it seems I underestimated it. Thursday night, I put $100 in my gas tank, which is suppose to last me to the end of the month. I estimate that after my trek back from the airport this morning. I probably blew $75 of that already. I knew I would do much more driving this weekend than normal but this is a lot of gas to burn. I never expected the needle to drop from full to a quarter tank. I expected a half tank but not a quarter. Oh well. It was worth it.
I also bought a T-shirt for $5. We went out once over the weekend with a couple friends for a few hours, that cost $20 for the couple drinks we bought. I also bought a few sodas and snacks over the weekend along with other misc purchases. Lastly, I gave P some pocket money to take back with her.
Overall, minus the amount of money I gave to P to carry with her, this weekend cost me less than $150 with the majority being gas. It feels like a lot but it really isn't that bad, especially considering my entertainment budget is still at $0. Can't say the same for my misc budget though. That erupted like a volcano this month again.
This weekend and the month on the whole made me consider modifying my budget. I don't have a budget for gifts nor for clothing. These are two things that I don't do monthly, but because of this, when they do happen, like both did this month, I end up bunching them in the misc category. Which is one reason why my misc will probably shoot through the roof every month. Maybe I should add them. We will see at the end of the month when I do the new budget for next month, which is next week.... Wow! Time is flying.
Well I haven't been around the blogosphere since Wednesday neglecting that quick post last Thursday. Time to do some catching up. Did I miss anything big or exciting or both?
