Pretty much took the majority of Friday evening and Saturday off from everything and it felt good. Sunday, of course, brought the demands of reality crashing back (along with 231 twitter messages on my phone). My body has decided to call off the war or whatever the problem was and I’m feeling mostly human again. And that’s never a bad thing.
Saturday, Spectrum and I celebrated National Daiquiri Day with banana daiquiris that maybe could have used a smidgen more ice, but were pretty good nonetheless. Finally had a reason to open the bottle of Appleton Special I bought a while back.
The spending-freeze for the month has actually not been too horrible. Spec and I have gone out to eat a couple of times, but I don’t consider that much of a stray since I’ve still not picked up take-out on random nights out of laziness or swung by Starbucks in the mornings. 11 days to go and I think I should have a few hundred left from the month to put onto one of the credit cards. That will feel extra nice. Avoiding the bookstore hasn’t been as difficult as I thought it would be, though I do think I’ll be doing a bit of clothes shopping at the beginning of August, but not too much.
