Ouch...expensive week....and I'm not proud of my little binge on Saturday. On the other hand, I was happy to find running shoes at about half what I was planning on spending, which is what led to the other purchases.  And of course I paid cash!  I ran in my new sneaks yesterday and my knee felt MUCH better!

Onward and upward.  We're on vacation this week and I am very excited about that.  We don't have a lot going on this week - we might check out the children's museum and/or go to the beach, but those are inexpensive day trips (under $10 each.)  At the end of the week we are going to Ogunquit which has one of the most beautiful white sand beaches on Maine's coast.  We are staying overnight in a hotel with a friend and her two children. It should be fun!

I guess that's all for now.  Off to clean up the house a bit and then make plans with my little one.  We want to get a hummingbird feeder to hang up outdoors, and I also need to do the returnables.  Nothing too exciting, but it's beautiful out and I am NOT at work - I'll take it!

So long for now...
