Friday Estimate

Not the dog in question, but a very good boy just the same via Flickr

This weekend, I am dog-sitting at a friend’s house while she and her boyfriend go to a wedding in Palm Springs — a mini vacation for them, and a mini staycation for me. I don’t really have any solid plans except for a birthday party for my youngest sister on Saturday night. I’ll probably take a car there and back ($30) and there will be dinner ($30), drinks ($30???) and god knows what else. Sunday, I’ll do some work and walk this Very Good Girl and since I’ll be removed from my neighborhood, where the temptation to spend money lies in wait around every corner, I’ll probably just read the books I brought with me and watch a lot of TV. Perfect.

That puts me at a cute $90. What about you?
