Food: $25.00 (yes, you read that right...for an entire weekend...there really is such a thing as a free lunch!)
Coffee: $8.00 (I bought two cups at Starbucks, and at one exit asked at a Daily's if there was a Starbucks nearby, and the girl at the counter said no, but treated me to a free large coffee...sweet!)
New blouse for the convention and a new Kermit the Frog purse: $21.00
A book on CD to listen to on the road: $65.00 (I'll get $60.00 of it back when I return it to the Cracker Barrel)
Hotel for one night: $110.00
Speeding ticket on the way to Augusta: to be determined *sigh*
Meeting new friends, seeing old ones again, making a cop chuckle, and knowing without a doubt that you're making a difference: Priceless!
