It helps that I spent the weekend at home, where my lovely sister and brother-in-law treated me to breakfast at Ikea. I also spent ample time chasing small children around the house. You can't spend money when you're too busy being the tickle monster.
And who needs a cheeseburger when your dad grills tri-tip and pork loin and then cooks you s'mores for dessert? No one, that's who.
This week will merely be a continuation of the stress from Friday. And since I'm nothing if not a stress spender/eat-outer, I expect the next few days to really test my metal. My biggest enemy? The road construction that forces me to drive by Walmart, Wendy's, Del Taco, Dairy Queen, IHOP, Quiznos, a delicious Chinese place, a delicious Thai place, a cafe, maybe a pizza place, and Cracker Barrel (although, I haven't actually eaten at Cracker Barrel since living here, so that's not much of a temptation) on my way to work. That is quite the gauntlet for a person who can readily justify taking five minutes and five bucks to get a quick meal so she can enjoy more of her lunch break.
Anyway, five days down and fifty-five to go!
