i noticed a few days ago that my driver's license wasn't in my purse. a day or two before that i had thought at one point that i had less cash in my purse than i remembered. today i put in three loads of laundry and headed to the bank for quarters so i could pay for the dryer. when i got to the bank, i realized that i still didn't have my driver's license...luckily i had my SAIC ID card. i cashed my erie insurance refund check ($72, score! it was my money to begin with, but found money feel good even if it was already yours...more on that momentarily) for $30 in quarters and some extra cash for tonight, and headed back to the apartment.
the money for tonight is for dinner and a movie: the JC-DC alumni group planned dinner at McGinty's and then discounted tickets to see pan's labyrinth at the AFI Silver Theater in Silver Spring, MD. only $7.50 for tickets! paul and i are trying to save money for car payments and weddings and other such important things, but i decided this was an allowable expense since it's one day after the sixth anniversary of our first official date, so we should celebrate.
so anyway, i get back from the bank and head straight to the laundry room (i like to be responsible, and also i was crossing my fingers that the large-capacity dryer would be empty - it was!), and begin unloading my two machined full of darks into the big dryer. i finished unloading the first machine (all paul's stuff) and started on the second, and sitting on top was a twenty dollar bill! that was exciting. i began to remember a walk paul and i had taken on tuesday, and that i may have put some money and my driver's licence in my pocket, so i crossed my fingers for the license to be here. i kept digging, and along with the license (*whew* i had been worried), i found another $31!! sheesh. i don't know why i put that much money in my pocket for a walk. but now with the refund check, money already in my wallet, and my newly laundered money, i will have plenty to use tonight at dinner without breaking out the credit card or disturbing my bank balance. i love found money!
speaking of tonight, time for a shower before the dryer is done!
