Today I was congratulating myself on dressing like a grown-up (even put on MAC eyeliner!), packing the laptop, dropping the pup at Doggie Day Camp, treating myself to lunch and finally making it to Starbucks to get some work done.
Seriously? Do people really get work done at Starbucks? Folks next to me are earnestly discussing Jesus, some not-great blues is playing and I haven’t done a lick of work. I am, however, enjoying my medium $4.55 Pumpkin Latte ( I don’t call it “grande,” it sounds so pretentious). So I’m not even breaking even – spent $34 ($14.00 for pup care) and have not written a single income-producing word.
I’ll head to Trader Joe’s in a bit and pick up some goodies and report in later. Watch my deficit column grow…
Essentials from Trader Joe’s
I always think I will just pick up a few things at TJ’s. That never happens. This was the list:
- maple syrup
- goat cheese
- wine (1-2 bottles of red)
- fig jam
Here’s what I threw in my cart in addition to the above:
- 5 bottles of wine, total
- frozen pumpkin pie
- coconut milk (that WAS on my list for another grocery store)
- coffee (since when has coffee gone to less than 12 oz. bags? It was bad enough that there is no longer a 1 lb. choice)
Grand total: $78. Did not see that coming.
