Spending even More Money

It's getting close to 5 in the morning, and I have to be up for 12 to go to Heart and Stroke, so yeah.

Like yesterday, woke up around 3:30 / 4 in the afternoon, and promptly asked Mom if we'd be able to head out to Staples again. At first, she said something about taking me around 5:30, but I told her that wouldn't really work, seeing as I had to be to work at 7, so she said she wanted to finish watching her show, then we'd go.

Got what I hope will be my last "big" purchases for now. A little mouse, for use with my laptop, and a carrying case for it. The bag, I couldn't decide on at first, because all the really nice ones were over $100, and the one that was under that amount that still looked nice had way too long of a handle. What's more, when we got home, I found that my laptop wouldn't even fit into the one I got. Well, at least not into the compartment I assume it's designed for. It still fits in one of the other sections though, so it'll do. As for the mouse, I got the one I posted a link to in my previous entry. I really don't like the little button thing on the bottom of the mouse and USB thing, but I suppose it's there to keep the cord from getting tangled, so there's not much I can do about it.

Those two things ran me ~$102 (and for comparison, the mouse was $19.98 before taxes), so if all goes well, those will be the last things of that sort I buy for now. I can still see spending money on something from 7-11, or supper from wherever on a day off, but not on anything else outside of that.

Oh... well then... so much for that :3 Finally just logged into GMail, and Michele sent me a reply to what I told her yesterday (about when I'd be back and such), and here's what she had to say:

"Friday is better this week because Thursday I’m away doing Friends of Stroke. Please don’t come in Thursday because and I’ll see you Friday. Thanks."

Right. What the hell am I doing up here in bed then? Meh. I'll probably just stay up here for now anyways. It's too late to go back downstairs. Have to work at 9 tonight, with Josh, Steve, and John, and like I told Steve earlier on, things all depend on how busy they are, and what still needs to be done at 2. If everything's done (barring the dishes), and they're not extremely busy, I'm going to go home. Otherwise, I'll probably just stay. The one disadvantage to that is that after work tonight, I had Dad bring my debit card when he came to get me, and we stopped by the bank, where I withdrew $500, because I figured I'd donate that to Heart and Stroke today, and give them the other half next time I was in. Given that email though, it's now just sitting up in the hiding spot here in my room, where it's rather unsafe. If worse comes to worse though, I'll just move it to a different spot.

As for tonight, it went quite well once again. Jerome had pretty much everything done when I walked in, so all we needed to do was the fry dump, tort rotation, and bagging Bertha. The only time we really got busy was at 11, but other than that, it was dead.

For now though, I'm just going to watch some more of the stuff that's on my external hard drive. Not quite tired enough to go to bed yet, but I'm sure to be soon enough.
