We went over budget by $90 this weekend.
I wish I could say it was on something important like an investment, a donation to the cancer society, or giving to help a military family but…
The $90 was spent on 5 flats of chicken thighs, 3 bags of charcoal, 4 fruit pies, green salad… and a round of golf.
My husband threw two hefty BBQ’s this weekend and went golfing with his brothers.
Fortunately, we both worked extra hours last week so we didn’t fall behind – in fact, we still came out ahead. Sometimes, inviting friends over to enjoy smoked chicken and homemade pies is worth it – especially when your BBQ is interrupted by an unexpected 20 minute fireworks show.
We sang Livin’ on a Prayer by Bon Joni while playing Rock Band late into the night.
I’ve been wonderfully budget conscious for months; I hope you can forgive this exception.
How was your holiday? Any budget hiccups?
