I totally spaced on Saturday and bought Wawa before my newphew's championship football game. Did not even remember about the challenge until Sunday night - whoops! Back on track.

Bought food at our work cafeteria yesterday, even though I brought leftovers for lunch. Trying to just acknowledge the shortcoming, but not beat myself up over it. No more buying food this week!

The Hubs and I signed up to be Secret Santas for a local child in need. He's six years old and only asked for essentials like socks, pajamas, and t-shirts, which makes me think his family might have lost everything in the storm. He also wrote he liked Jake and the Neverland Pirates, so last night I ordered the VTech J&NP Learning Laptop for him as well as our nephew whose birthday is the first week of January. Hopefully, it comes in time (we're supposed to turn in the presents by Saturday).

In bad news, my car's transmission has taken to clunking when shifting into certain gears. It's most notable if I accelerate quickly and when I put it in reverse. So far, I've been able to avoid driving except when necessary, but obviously I can't avoid travel all together. There's really nothing I can do about it, anyway, since we don't have the money to get it fixed and I definitely don't have the money for another car right now. It's mostly just frustrating.

Anyone want to contribute to my car fund? I'll chauffer you around in exchange for your donation ;-)
