Monday Check-In
Nicole Dieker

I estimated $330 and ended up have an almost-no-spend weekend (kind of, more on that later). Here’s how that happened…

Friday: Last weekend I bought a bunch of tequila by popular request. Then by popular request, margaritas were made. I had two, which leads to…

Saturday: …a (minor) migraine, for some reason. Yay. Put together a shopping list, went grocery shopping. My dad paid, though the turkey and some additional things will need to be picked up on Wednesday. I’m counting $75 for that, since the turkey was reserved over the weekend.

Then I lay in bed for the rest of the day alternating listening to episodes of Downton Abbey and sleeping and wrote zero words.

Sunday: Finally got to writing! Somewhere in there, under the guise of “research”, I ordered a used book on 18th century feminism, $5. I wrote two days’ worth of NaNoWriMo wordcount. If I can keep up that pace, I’ll finish. If I can’t…well…better luck next year, I guess.

Total: $80.
