Here is where I fess up to all of the no-spend week items that I flubbed on.
Day 1: I bought lunch even though I brought it to work b/c a coworker invited me out and I said yes before thinking
Day 1: I bought plane tickets to go home, but I had no control over that
Day 3: (black Friday) I didn't buy stuff personally but I went grocery shopping and costco shopping to help out...and was rewarded with a free cookbook.
Day 4: We bought lunch at McDonalds, funny thing is in line at the drive thru we decided to get a McRib Meal and an extra McRib (and share the fries and drink). The scene went like this:
McDrivethru: "Welcome to McDonalds, can I interest you in a McRib value meal?
Captain: "Why yes, that sounds Great!"
McDrivethru: "Can I interest you in adding another McRib for $1?"
Captain: "Why yes, that sounds GREAT!"
It was all I could do to keep from giggling in the background.
Other than those purchases I think we did pretty well as we were mostly home or at the wake or the funeral. I'm glad we went back though, we got to see a lot of the captains family and friends, including "Grandma Captain" who I finally finished the shawl for!
