Hello again! I’m extra pleased on this Sunday evening because I’ve managed to conquer my sudden but inevitable eclipse FOMO. Portland is almost in the path of totality (I’ve been learning new terminology left and right for this thing) so many of my friends are making plans to head south to see the event tomorrow.
Mr Never Cooks however has to go to work rain or shine, sun or no sun. And hey, there are plenty of things I’m happy to do solo, but finding a way to go 50 miles in the worst traffic in Oregon history while on my own seems like a surefire way to turn a cool event into a stressful mess. And I prefer to have my partner along for all stressful messes.
So, instead I’m settling for the 99.5% eclipse and putting stargazing at Machu Picchu on my bucket list. I had a friend show me pictures from his trip there and I’d say the starry night sky is enough to tide me over until the next total solar eclipse in 2024.
Speaking of bucket list trips, it would be nice to have money in the bank to actually check a few more big ticket items off. Food is a big expense in our household and it can be challenging to cut down too much on the grocery budget. How do I fix this?
