Some unplanned spending

July 11th, 2017 at 10:57 pm

Although it isn't a huge amount, I did wind up spending money that I hadn't planned on Sunday and yesterday.

Memorials for my friend were to the children's education fund. Since all are younger than 15, and there are three of them, We felt we had to give a decent gift.

Then yesterday out of the blue we receive a notice that a friend's son and his wife are having a baby and here's the link to the registry...btw, the baby is due in a month. I sort of felt put on the spot. So, I sent a gift certificate through the site. I don't want to sound cheap and/or snarky, but we haven't seen this guy for years and years. We still keep up with the parents, but I sort of felt pressured.

Neither will break us by any means. Just a little unexpected.

    The education fund was nice to do since you can't bring dad back. The baby gift-- well, maybe that was really for your friends.

    That was nice to give to the memorial and also the friend's son and wife even if you felt slightly pressured - you have done a good thing and should be proud of yourselves.
