We had our Financial Peace University class on Sunday. I found it incredibly difficult to share the reason we were gone for last three sessions.
Admitting we had taken a family vacation to Europe is the equivalent of telling your Alcoholics Anonymous sponsor you spent the last two and a half weeks downing bottles of Jameson.
They weren’t exactly receptive to the idea.
We explained that this was likely the last and only time we would have the opportunity to go with our family and we funded the trip fully with cash.
But still, they weren’t happy about it.
I started to get annoyed and then realized, isn’t that the point of FPU accountability? Isn’t that the reason for the class?
No, I wouldn’t have changed my decision to go… but you can bet I won’t be strolling into class with a new sweater or a cup of Starbucks anytime soon.
