Just too much!

June 26th, 2011 at 05:30 am

I drank too much, ate too much, spent too much... hung out with much younger friends this weekend and I can feel it! It's fun doing something out of the ordinary, but I'm ready to head back to my regular life!

Summer Vacay Day #1

June 20th, 2011 at 12:38 pm

I woke up early, still jet lagged. Then went back to bed, this time with little DD and dog in tow, so no sleep, but it was funny! Little DD wrote a story on the computer while big DD slept, she stayed up really late last night to celebrate no school!

I stopped in at work to finish some end of the year stuff, then did a 30 minute workout with a friend. Afterwards I ate a packed lunch with my girls. Then we got groceries for the week, and the girls are watching a movie downstairs now. I did some cleaning, and I'll get ready to cook in a few minutes. We still have dance class tonight, which is fun for all of us!

A medical appointment scheduled for tomorrow has been rescheduled for later this week. So now we plan on going to the library tomorrow and the pool whenever the rain stops.

Have I mentioned I love it here in the summer?!?! There's so much to do, I feel like I'm on vacation! Or maybe my family is just easily amused!

Home sweet,sweet home!

I made it back from Europe! The most difficult parts of the trip of course involved the airlines, it was a disaster from the beginning as far as transportation and luggage were concerned. I'm too exhausted to go into much detail, I will just say I have no desire to fly anytime soon. Bleh.

Fortunately,Poland is not as expensive as the rest of Europe. Besides unplanned spending on emergency clothes and toiletries to get us through 4 DAYS WITHOUT LUGGAGE(!) I comfortably stayed within budget.

Of course, long term savings took a hit to cover ticket costs, so I'll be building that back up this summer. I noticed that some bloggers are doing a 2 week no eating out challenge, I'm jumping in, starting today!

Glorious June!

All of the bills for the first half of the month have gone through. A transfer is scheduled on Monday from long-term savings to my credit card. This will pay off the plane tickets for Europe. So savings is down to $9,924. I'll bring it back up again, though.

I'm getting excited about the trip! I'm a little anxious about what to wear- seems like no matter what I wear I stick out anyway! At least this time I'm visiting my "homeland", Poland. My mother's family is from Poland, my great-great grandmother! So I might blend in a bit more than when I've visited other places!

A few more weeks of school, so I've got lots of end-of-year work to be done. Then I'm off to Europe! BFF is headed there for work and I'm tagging along! It will cost the plane ticket, but the room will be covered. I'm going to have to take money out of savings to pay for the tickets. Ah, well, that's what it is there for. Sometimes!
