Well, I’m a thousand bucks lighter in the wallet but at least now I am calmer. The timing sucks but it will be fun to have a new toy for working on the road.

I chalk this sense of calm up to the time-out I took after shopping.

I rarely get manicures and this was a serious cheer-me-up-now type of situation.

It ate up a good portion of time I could be using for much more important things today, but my sanity needed tending to.

  • non-fat latte: $5
  • french manicure: $30
  • an hour of down time: priceless
