I received a bit of money as a gift from family. As often happens, I thought about what to do with it and made a little mental list of things I'd like to get. Kind of like I do when I fantasize about winning the lottery.
What I wanted to buy:
A second battery for the new camera so I won't run our of power when I shoot a bazillion photos.
A passport drive to store pictures on.
A new memory card for Someone's camera.
A sushi dinner date for Someone and I.
A few more pieces of winter clothing for Sprout.
What I did use the money for:
Filling The Black Hole (my poor bank account has been in the negative for months)
Feeding someone else's addiction.
Taking Sprout to play with Buddy (the Evil Genius) for half a day at Catch Air.
Takeout dinner from the noodle shop for Someone.
Cat food, cat litter, and other items from the grocery store that we ran out of all at once.
And I managed to keep some aside for the Evil Genius's birthday party.
I have a dollar left.
A whole dollar just for me.
