We are back from vacation! It was so nice to get away, and to completely stop looking at all the stuff we have to for work.
Was vacation expensive? It depends on what you consider “expensive.” The total cost came to about $1500.00, which includes B&B for 5 days, dinner out every night, a gondola ride to the top of a mountain, gasoline to and from home to vacation destiny, and snacks for lunch. All this for a total of 6 days. We are glad we did it! We are very fortunate to have a most fantastic friend who dog and house sits for us! (If you are reading this, you know who you are!)
Coming back from vacation meant catching up on a few things, like laundry or what have you. Bills are paid at this time of the month (around the 15th) as well as the first. We put a part of the vacation on the credit card we are paying off, just to avoid having to not be able to see where our debit card goes. That entire card is now paid off!
We return to work today. I am back on my awful schedule, and the other half is in a position he does not like, and is not a good fit. He was put there in a moment of corporate reorganization which was not well planned. And with this return to the routines in life will come better detail on our debt reduction and listing of expenses. And the realization that in 3 years we hope to be debt-free (150 more Mondays, but who is counting?) and retired.
