Weekend ups and downs

Spent weekend at Dad's house rather than at home where I buy my own food, wine, etc. Est. +$40.00
But Dad didn't have much in the fridge, so I bought my own yogurt, fruit, etc. and toothbrush since I had forgotten to bring one from home. -$11.18
Used $25 TJ Maxx gift card to buy presents for niece and nephew, plus belt for self. Spent a bit more than value of card. -$2.57
Wanted to play with niece & nephew one more time before leaving so took roundabout route to Amtrak station via commuter train instead of subway. -$4.00
Decided I wanted to get home earlier so changed ticket to Acela train instead of regular train. Thought it would be -$27.00 but turned out to be -$45.00. Ouch.
When back in NY, went to Long Island Railroad ticket window to get cash refund for unused transit strike tickets. +$16.00
Very Unscientific Total -$6.75

thumbs up on turning in those strike tickets for cash (let's focus on the positive inflows!) ;)
