Car Insurance $50 (Estimate as I don't know how this will change yet)

    During transition things get bumpy so you may need to dip into savings for socializing. Is Freddies a bar?...can you pick something healthier than Wendy's or Taco Johns... Fried and chemical infused foods need to be avoided just now for really healthy baked, vegetable and fresh fruit targeted choices. All the grocery chains have ready made trays of cut up fruit and veggies with dip small party trays. The deli will cut your favourite cheese in cubes. Costs a bit more but you're worth it! [please forgive the cliche]

    Thanks snafu. For the most part I don't eat crap. lol Wendys I had two chicken sandwiches. Taco Johns I just wanted something NAUGHTY! And it was delicious! Normally I always bring yogurt or leftovers for lunch. Paradiso was for a friend's BD dinner(fish tacos and a margarita). Captain Freddies is a bar/restaurant and that was for another friend's going away party (Spinach salad with mushrooms, olives, artichoke hearts, and peppers, YUM! and 3 beers). I like pizza or burgers once in awhile as a treat but for the most part I eat pretty healthy.

    Today I am going to make some soup for lunch for the week. Lots of veggies in my freezer I need to use up. Also have enough yogurts for the week, blueberries and granola.
