What a boring Friday night

September 26th, 2008 at 06:37 pm

So, the 'procedure' wasn't as bad as I thought it would be. They also said it wasn't causing me any of the health issues I've been experiencing, but they would remove the cyst "just in case it might grow larger in the future."

I spent last night at my mom's house, came back to my apartment this morning and cashed a $50 check from my grandmother. Did I put it in savings? Make a credit card payment? Heck no ... I have a refrigerator and pantry stocked with whole grain pita bread, fresh mozzarella cheese, hummus, red bell pepper, bibb lettuce, olive oil ... basically, all of my favorite things. Do I regret it? Maybe just a tad. $50 is $50. But I also can say that I'm totally OK with my little grocery splurge today.

Atlanta has been having beautiful weather, but the gas shortage is making everyone cranky. I ran to Target earlier today and a couple of cars were on the side of the road. Out of gas. When a station does get a delivery, people are lined up for miles. It's absolutely insane. I am so thankful my car has good gas mileage, and I live close to work.

I'm not sure what I'll be doing this weekend. Oh, and I need to find a formal dress for a gala coming up in October. I'm looking at some Web sites right now. Anyone have a recommendation on a Web site or brick and mortar store to check out? (Please don't say eBay. I hate eBay.)

The 'boring Friday night' is referring to the debate. I'm an Obama supporter and a news junkie, but I'm so tired of the finger pointing and the blame game. Can we just vote now and get this over with?

Oh, and just one last piece of news ... I was accepted to the credit union that I mentioned in an earlier post. I'm excited! I truly believe that this move will pretty much force me to be 100% responsible with my money, and also help me save more.

I'm off to browse the money forums and check up on some of my friends. Have a great weekend everyone!

    Surprising to me that there are still supposedly so many "undecided" voters out there. They are in such contrast to each other, it seems crystal clear to me.

    From a foreigner's point of view, let me tell you this is the most exciting US election of my whole life !!

    If I had a vote, I would choose Obama. He is such a breath of fresh air after the years of Bush cronyism. He is calm, intelligent and solid. I sure he has faults like the rest of us.

    My gut instinct tells me he is just what America needs right now.

    I think after a "procedure" you deserve a little grocery treat. It's a healthy boost. Doesn't it seem like forever until the elections happen?
