Vacation and Stuff

June 30th, 2009 at 08:26 pm

So... we are leaving for vacation (San Diego) on Monday - very excited about that. We already paid the hotel room a while back, so now we just need to pay cash for food, gas, and whatever we decide to do while we are there. I have $850 saved (here's hoping we don't come close).

I paid more towards debt this month, but July will be the pay off on the last three cards (instead of June, like I previously thought).

I have been trying to get more organized in the spending department, so I got Quicken - it's not working like I thought it would. For some reason I have a hard time getting my banking information to automatically download. I think we will start fresh in August, and really try to keep track of everything (July will be too spendy). Besides, August is the beginning of the last of the bills to pay off. We are getting so close, it's nice. It certainly feels great to be paying cash for everything, including our vacation.

We've tried doing some fun things with the kids this summer; besides the pool and library, we've gone to the movies a few times (always a matinee and BYOCandy). We went and saw Transformers last week - LOVED IT!

I am abt to finish up my 2nd class (Masters program)... it's going well. I look forward to the $1470 in tuition reiumbursement! lol...

Work has been crazy; a ton of new projects coming my way. But, it all deals with recognition programs for our associates, so it's fun work!

I will post pics of Nic and Shamu when we get back!! Smile

Until then... Hasta luego!

    I almost swallowed my tongue when I saw that $5.50 bottle of Aquafina. I think hotels are insane, the prices that they will lead people to pay for convenience. Ridiculous. Most of the time you can walk across the street to a store and pay 1/4 of the cost and have some insurance that you are saving yourself an arm and a leg! Thanks for the laugh... =)
