Well, we didn’t have any luck getting bumped from our flight on Wednesday. Although the plane was full, the airport wasn’t nearly as hectic as in years past. I guess people are flying less due to the economy.
I didn’t have any unplanned spending this weekend, but I spent nonetheless. There was the rental car, gas and aiport food as a result of flying to see hubby’s parents. Then there was my dad’s birthday party (though the cost was split with my brother) in my hometown. It was a busy few days with all the traveling we did.
I never partake in the Black Friday madness though it might have been nice to take advantage of some of the online deals. However, I have not made my Christmas list yet. Tsk tsk on me. Thankfully I only have a few people to shop for. Plus my family is easy, more than likely I will just call and ask what they want. LOL.
However, I HAVE purchased our Christmas cards. We did photo cards this year. I’m going to try to write a few each night (I do handwritten notes inside) so I don’t get overwhelmed. At some point we need to go take pics for next year’s cards. I’m actually planning ahead for once and the shopping area near our house has the cutest lighted reindeer that I want us to take pics with. Cute and free!
I also got my BlackBerry. Yay! No more forgetting dates or double-booking. I love it thus far though I’m still figuring out how to use it. The only downside is that the bill will be higher than I expected. The discount I get from my employer only covers the calling plan, not the Blackberry data plan. Boo! I guess I was so excited about getting it that I failed to read the fine print. All is well though because I did switch over all (auto, home, umbrella) our insurance and the savings will cover the additional costs.
How did you guys do with spending this weekend? Anyone find any great deals?
