Went into work today. Lot's of people on vacation right now, place was emptier than usual.

Spent $5.50 for lunch in cafeteria
Got 10 cents a gal off gas at King Soopers. Paid 1.99/gal and spent $15.29
Got my free Souper Salad meal on the way home. I got a free meal for buying a $25 gift card.

Total spent this month = $308.58

Finished reading my book Red Lily by Nora Roberts. Romance. Very good. Third in a trilogy. Reading is a big priority for me, it's my number one way to reduce stress, relax and enjoy myself. I like a wide variety of books so it seems like there's almost always something new out by an author that I like. I don't know what I would do without the library. I could easily spend $150 - $200 hundred more per month than I do now if I didn't have library books to read. I'm also very fortunate that I can listen to books while I'm working at home. Anytime I'm working on something that doesn't require a lot of concentration I can listen to a book. I probably listen to books about 3 hours a day and I usually read between 3 and 4 hours a day. Since I don't have to commute most days I get a little more time out of the day. I used to average a book a day, but I don't think I read quite that much anymore. My eyes tend to hurt more in the evenings and I get sleepy, middle-age creeping up on me Smile I probably average 5 books a week now.
