Hard to budget to the penny for a vacation

August 5th, 2013 at 08:39 am

I sold some gold to finance gas, admissions, parking, and treats for twelve days. Then I learned there wouldn't be much left in the fridge where I was staying, so I must buy groceries. Today's a civic holiday.

Also DH is visiting us for a weekend, so tickets for bus fare, plus anniversary dinner. I'm telling myself it's the #1 city in Canada we're visiting, thus the expenses will be justified.

Speaking of former stomping grounds, went on an eyeball bender with baselle, and a 5K gumshoe through a Seattle neighborhood. We had good weather, eagle eyes with "limited" mental filters, and enough blood sugar to last us three hours. We finished up yesterday, just the two of us, to limit the chaos and take best advantage of her close-reading aptitude.

    Inquiring minds want to know - Did baselle find any coins on the ground? Big Grin

    None the first day, but I did find .16 the second day. Spondulicks, ya forgot the liquor. That helped with the limiting the mental filters.

    Spondulicks was (is) great with the thinking outside the clue and attentiveness to the GPS coordinates. She is not kidding about my close-reading: I'll bet nobody forgets "stone, not metal".

    It sounds like you 2 had a blast! Congrats on the 16-cent find baselle. Big Grin
