Wow week 14 already. It’s been a ride and week 13 really hit me hard as I was buying Christmas gifts and I treated myself to little something.
I’m trying my best to keep my spirits up in the midst of the seasons transitioning (were going into winter) or I could say “winter is coming” (referencing a show in which I’ve fallen asleep halfway through the first episode 3 times and never been able to successfully start).
I’m trying to get myself into new routines like taking vitamins and going to sleep on time and doing things that make me happy.
I’ve found the early results are pretty good so I’m going to keep up and maybe I can get through the winter season without suffering from mad seasonal depression like the past 5-8 years.
Now to the blog!
Monday started off well. I worked at 7:30am to 3:30pm, spent $5 on some coffee. While I was at work I ripped my pants.
So I had to rollllllll on over to the mall and buy new pants.
While I was there I was taking pics of things I may want for Christmas (yes I do love getting gifts, but I love giving them more).
I ended up spending $134.60 at the mall. YIKES!
I came home and had dinner with Jordan. We hung out for a bit, Jordan went to bed and I played 2k for a bit.
I woke up in the morning and attempted to do things but kinda just chilled.
I worked from 10am – 5pm. It was a meh kinda day.
I ended up going the whole day without spending money.
I went to my moms for bit to hangout and chat about this weekends plans.
My mom dropped me off and I hung out with Jord, we had latte and watched some Lucifer before going to bed.
I woke up and chilled for a bit, made myself a lunch, played some 2k.
I didn’t have to be at work until 11:30. So I got ready to go and was on my way.
I got halfway there and realized I forgot my lunch. So I had to spend $6.95 on lunch.
When I got off work at 6:30 Jordan met up with me and we bought some groceries and a few Christmas gifts, it cost $52.30.
We packed our bags and ventured home.
We put all the groceries away and turned on some Lucifer. We mucked half a bag on Jalepeno Cheddar popcorn.
Jord had to work early in the morning so she went to bed. I stayed up and played 2k for about and hour and a half and then called it a night.
Ah Thursday, I don’t work until 2pm today. I have a couple things on my list and I need to get them done.
I have to:
- Bake cupcakes for Jordan
- Go return a Christmas gift.
- Practice Guitar
- Shower and get ready for work
I’m up and at it at 9am. That gives me like about 4 hours to get all of this done. Worst comes to worst I can always return the gift on the weekend.
PS she snowing good out there today!
I successfully finished everything except returning the Christmas gift! Not bad!
I went to work for 2pm and worked until 10pm. It was a good shift. I was training for supervising on the night shift and I did most of it on my own. I felt pretty good about it.
When I arrived home I realized I took home the keys for the office and would have to wake up early to return them.
I talked with Jordan for awhile and then we went to bed.
I woke up at 7am and had to quickly get ready to take the keys into work!
I had a nice walk, it was crisp and cool out and woke me up quite well.
I dropped the keys off much to the relief of my coworker who was opening the store.
I came home had some breakfast and got ready for work.
I left around 8:45am and when I got to work I realized I had forgotten my coffee on the counter.
Luckily when my buddy Zack showed up he gave me a Tim’s Double Double! It powered me through the next few hours of my shift!
I purchased chocolate and some snacks on my breaks it cost $9.45.
I clocked out and hopped in my moms car. We went to pick up Jordan to drop her off at her bus.
We drove her and when we got there the bus was FULL and the next bus would come in like 20 minutes. So Jord told us to leave because she didn’t want us to wait. She called me and said the bus was going to be like an hour late. So I told her I would grab her headphones (which she had forgotten at home) and bring them to her.
I hopped in the car, got home, grabbed her headphones and zoomed to her.
Jord got in the car to warm up and we sat until her bus showed up.
I said goodbye and drove to my moms.
My mom ordered pizza for us for dinner. I chilled for a bit and watched the latest episode of Rupaul’s Drag Race UK.
After the show finished we talked with my sister Nicole who had shown up and then my mom dropped myself and Adrian off at my grandma’s.
Adrian and I played a game of NBA 2k20 and then played some overcooked.
We threw on the new Green Eggs and Ham Netflix Original and chilled until bed time.
Woke up this morning and had some breakfast with Adrian and then played some more overcooked.
We then moved on to Beyblades and after a thrilling tournament that ended in a double disqualification final (due to Adrian’s favourite Bey losing) we both got cleaned up and went on an adventure.
We walked over to Shoppers Drug Mart to buy bus tickets, I spent $44.80.
We talked to a few of my coworkers and then walked to the bus stop.
We rode the bus to the mall and hopped off. We made our way to every store that had toys and looked around.
My mom got off work as we were arriving at the mall so we met her at Toys R Us.
I spent $7.90 on a pack of Fortnite Mighty Beanz for Adrian.
We looked around a few more stores then we made our way to Popeyes Chicken and mom treated us to lunch.
Mom drove me back home and she picked up Adrian’s stuff. Shortly after my sister Nicole texted me asking if I was doing anything.
She picked me up and we headed to the mall, we made a quick stop at the pet store which cost me $71.20. We grabbed a Starbucks and walked around for awhile. I bought some gifts while I was there. The total cost was $56.30.
We drove to my moms and hung out for awhile. Nicole left and then not long after I went home with my moms car.
I got ready and went to bed! I was SO TIRED AND OVERSTUFFED WITH FOOD!
Woke up and got ready for work. I drove to Tim’s to grab a coffee for my manager Roxy and I. Cost me $10.25.
After I ate my breakfast sandwich I went to work. It was a fairly simple day at work just making sure all the bad food was out and all the new food was in.
I hopped in my moms car and raced home to get changed. I grabbed my stuff and went to pick up my mom and Adrian.
Shortly we were on our way to Kingston to visit my sister Jess. When we got there we went to this restaurant called Coco Frutti. It is delicious but man it is filling.
After lunch we dropped Jess off and we went to Costco. We navigated our way through the sea of humans and exited the store unharmed with our purchases in hand. Total spent was $70.70.
We left Kingston and went to pick Jordan up from the bus stop since she had just gotten back into town from her weekend away.
My mom drove us home and we tidied up around the house, chilled for a bit, had a grilled cheese and then went to bed.
This week did not go as planned. I had a few things come up and they boosted my spending, my cats destroyed my phone charger so I had to get a new one and that cost $70 and the cats ran out of food at the end of this week so that cost $70. I did also use my debit card all week.
So I have vowed to go to the credit union on Tuesday and pull out cash and get back on track.
Here is a look at my spending:
