April, When It was still normal

My cushion took a beating in March.  And I am worried April won't be much better since we will be going out with friends before we leave for England on May fifteenth.  Send good thoughts.  (Update:  England is now on hold.)

At $12.31 per day we have $369.30 to spend for April.  Our cushion is$68.02 from January and $32.08 left from February.  So, the max is $469.40.  Let's see how well we do.

What did we eat:

Leftovers of pizza, ham loaf, French Onion soup;  grilled pork chops with Greek cucumber salad and creamed spinach; leftover savoury cheesecake, tacos at Megen's, ham steak on the grill, leftover ham steak

Eating Out:

Lunch with Ginger and Eileen. $11.01
Lunch on way to beach house  $10.87
Dinner out at beach house. $20.57
Dinner and lunch on way back from D.C.   $15.80


Aldi:  $21.25
Cantaloupe, Brussels sprouts, cucumbers (3), canned peaches, pears, fruit cocktail and mandarin oranges,  Parmesan cheese, Roma tomatoes, asparagus, carrots, mushrooms, olives (2), cream

We've spent $79.50 so far this month.  We have $289.80 of April's money, plus the  $101.10 of bonus.

It is anyone's guess how the next few weeks will go.
Yesterday I had surgery to repair a broken left hip.
 Once released, I will be going to a rehab center to kick start my rehab.
 For the next few weeks Mike will be chief cook and grocery shopper.
 I think I have left him enough funds.  We shall see.
