Hi Chile, hi Megan. How you gals been doing? Megan, did you have a fun trip?
I sure did. And yes, it did involve spending money, though honestly, it still wasn't a ton of money.
On Friday, July 11th, I ended up getting a last minute oil change for my car. I've been driving so much less than usual, that I have sort of been neglecting my car's upkeep, and in fact eight months had gone by since my last oil change. Of course, in that time, I had only put 5,600 miles on the car, but my manual says to change the oil at 6 months or 7,500 miles. Since it was less than 7,500 miles (though over six months), I thought that I was probably okay, but, in the end, paranoia won out (what if I get stuck in the middle of the desert!) and I got the oil change. So that set me back to the tune of $41.35.
I made Honda, Pie and myself sandwiches for the ride over to Vegas, to save us all the time and money. We arrived in Vegas around 11:00pm, and promptly ordered a few round of drinks. I paid for one round for my friends. Cost of drinks: $58.50.
The next morning, we ate breakfast at a terrible restaurant. Terrible AND expensive. Did I mention we were hungover? Blech. $25.00.
But we made up for it by eating a very nice dinner that night for $25.00.
And the next day, we had a delicious breakfast buffet for $18.32.
Aside from that, I paid $28.00 for gas, and $15.00 for a taxi ride we took.
So in total that comes out to ... $211.17 (not including the $100 for the hotel that I'd paid in advance.) $211.17, for a weekend that was, to quote Mastercard, priceless.
I think I did pretty well, actually, all things considered.
