It’s been a busy day so far.
On top of my usual Thursday stuff that got postponed because of the move yesterday, I’ve prepped the two of us for the event this weekend, cleaned the house, and even done the 2018 budget, which for us is a pretty manual thing. We use an Excel spreadsheet where each line item for each pay period is entered one at a time, to make sure our meager money gets where it needs to go. It’s a bit of a challenge sometimes, especially when practically all of our bills are scheduled to hit out of the same check, but it’s that challenge that makes it fun for me. It’s also probably why I haven’t utilized the budget tools in Quicken, the program we use to manage our bank accounts.
I’m really looking forward to this weekend. I hope that I’ll get to see a lot of friends that I haven’t seen in a long time at the event. It’s the first time in years that I’ve done back-to-back SCA events like this, and it really feels good to be spending so much time around my chosen family.
There’s still plenty to do, so I’m going to go ahead and get to it. Tomorrow’s post is going to be very brief, battery depending, since I’ll likely still be at the event or on the road back to where I’m staying over the weekend when I’ve got something to write about.
