It’s still hard to say no
August 30, 2009
I just went back to work this week after summer vacation. I’ve gone out to eat for lunch or dinner every day this week. I’m definitely making up for last month of gas and groceries! It’s just really hard not to give in; not to have that immediate gratification I get from enjoying a nice meal with friends. I have felt really guilty about it, and I have not found a single way to justify it.
I guess on one hand I should remain positive because I’m not trying to justify these expenses. In the past that’s what I would have done. I also know that this pattern of dining out is only for this week. My life of brown bag lunches will resume next week.
