Our 2016 MIssion and My Favorite Person!!!!!
Fine, I'm sure that I got a lot done. It's just my mind is mush. I honestly, have to write every little thing down or its gone.
I'm getting closer to having to pay off the balance of the credit card before the 0% is gone. I think it is the end of July. I'm plucking away at it. I think we owe about $3700. We started at $6000 so I'm getting there. Who pays off a car in a year? Someone that likes to stress themselves out.
And just to make sure that I'm more stressed out, we booked a quick trip to visit DJ. My SIL wanted to see Ball State. And I want the boys to see the college. Anna would visit my SIL at EIU and it made a huge impact on her when she was small. Justin and Andrew worship DJ and I want them to remember the visit. DJ bought them Ball State Tees. It should be a fun visit but my focus should be on saving.
Den wanted to go on a fishing trip with his BFF, Steve(my besties hub). But they have family coming in from England. So it looks like they are bringing Steve's FIL and then I said Den should, bring his dad. One thing led to another and my FIL took over. They are no longer camping or staying in a cabin, they are now staying in a posh resort. Den loves his dad but don't mess with his fishin'. I'm sure it will work itself out. Either way, its another bill.
Scott, Anna's BF, didn't get the teaching job in IL. That's not cool, I really wanted them to come home. Anna said the only good thing about it is they can now make more definite plans about moving or staying in Denver. I said move home for a few months. Neither seemed real jazzed about living in IL. I wonder why. Hey, do you think its cuz of me?
The grocery bill/gas/everything else fund is dropping ever so slightly and holding. This is a small miracle. And my stockpile is growing. $200/week is a fair amount, I think.
This stunning picture was stolen from Elephant's Child. YAY!!! Really, don't even bother reading anything here just go visit E.C.. I love all the festivals that go on and I'm addicted to the stunning pictures.
Are you going to accomplish a lot or a little this weekend? Are you saving money? Are you leaving by way of hot air balloon?
Broke and Grounded,
