OK.  Last Monday I vowed to monitor my eating and spend less.  Success in some fronts; a couple disasters – entirely avoidable ones, I might add.Success:  did a good grocery shop at Costco.  Nothing like a full fridge to assist home-cooked meals.  I’m sure I cut my eating out by half.
Disasters:1.  Thur.:  gave seminar from 12:30 – 2:00.  Silly me – thought I’d last til 3pm.   One $12 ‘coffee break’ later…

2. Sat:  bought my gorgeous new Mac!  and in the process all thoughts of food fled, but when I went to the bank to work, hunger struck and off to, ugh, McDonald’s.

3.  Monday:  today, again – lost in MacLand, and brought no sustenance to the bank.  So again, off to WhiteSpot this time.

Between the three, easily $30 gone in a flash.  I wouldn’t mind if it was intended – like Sunday brunch at Docker’s – but this was pure waste. Next week, I’ll post my excel results on this.  With any luck my eating-out column (the only one I’ll post!)And, I’m thinking my daschunds may need to modify their dining habits as well!  In with the homemade, out with the high end treats from the Store of Doggie Temptation, Bow Wow Haus.
