Dropped $10k at charity auction the other to surprise our 16 year old to meet her favorite pro athlete, hang out on field before game, watch game in a suite, team jerseys, blah, blah, blah. Will be a nice family memory (hopefully). At least some of it will be tax deductible.

The landscaper was over today, seventeen hundred for the plan and he estimates 40 grand for the execution.

But I'll no longer have the worst yard in the hood -

Vacation was 2.5 weeks in Africa for our 30th anniversary.

Trips were for momma to see the kiddos.

That's some serious dough blowing. You probably beat out Warren Buffett.

$9083 on your sick cat - Well spent! If you have any more dollars to spend maybe consider a donation to a no-kill/rescue cat shelter.
