SATURDAY MARCH 23
$ MONEY SPENT OUT OF POCKET
- After Joyce Carol Oates* panel at Montclair Literary Festival [bought tickets a while back], Raymond's, dinner out w Sis and Karen. My part counting tip, $33.
*Great to see, hear and meet the author. I met her once as a student at a Douglass College event. "I remember going to Douglass College. It was very nice," she said when I brought that up at the book-signing table I want to read Blonde, about Marilyn Monroe; Black Water, about the Chappaquiddick victim; and an early short story, "Where Are You Going, Where Have You Been?" Ms. Oates said many people say the story affected/terrified them. I just googled and found it to read. JCO wrote it in 1966 'for Bob Dylan.'
- Yoga Mechanics, 5-class card, $120.
- Montclair Bread Company, rosemary loaf; iced coffee; delicious prosciutto, ricotta and fig sandwich; small bottle chocolate milk; and $1.40 jar tip, $24.
MONEY THOUGHT: I have been missing yoga. I want to get back to going at least once a week. Sometimes when I wake up in the morning, my body is off-balance, tilted to the left. Money spent on yoga is well spent and I would like to make that a priority. I saved the cost of an Uber home after Punch's soccer game yesterday by asking a friend for a ride. Sometimes people, including us, have packed schedules, but the friend I asked had a little leeway. Dan had been at the game but then had to take the car and drive to work.
