Weekly Debt Update #19- Father’s Day Weekend and Disney Prep

by

Hope everyone is having a wonderful day.

This past weekend was Father’s Day, of course, so for all you fathers out there- here’s to you. Since my dad was down in Orlando visiting my nephew all weekend, we did not do any celebrating. After talking with my mom and brother, we’re holding off celebrating with my dad until the weekend of the 4th, since we all have the weekend off. However, just like for mother’s day where I celebrated GF being the “mother” of our dogs, she did some amazingly wonderful things for me. First, she made me breakfast, and then I got to spend most of the day doing what I wanted (spent playing guitar) while she worried about taking care of the chores. She made the dinner of my choice (her awesome homemade chili and a Greek salad) and then took us for a drive to a little, but fairly famous, road side stand for root beer floats. On the way back, we stopped at a beach and relaxed in the park. Here’s me on a child’s swing, lol:

As for Disney prep- I appreciate all the amazing comments on last week’s post. We now have some ideas for what we are going to do for food on our way back. Chances are at this point, we’ll find a grocery store outside of Disney and grab some items to pack in our cooler on the way back. Like I said before, GF has begun picking up non-perishables for the ride down. The way she coupons and shops, I don’t see a problem having enough non-perishable foods for both the way down and the way back up. We also started doing a “hardcore” cleaning of our house. The house never gets really dirty, but we don’t clean into the nooks and crannies too often. GF and I agree that there’s no better feeling after vacation than coming home to a super clean house. This way we won’t have to worry about doing much in the ways of chores when we get back. If there’s one thing about Disney, with the amount of walking and the lack of sleep, you could use a vacation after, so to speak, lol. ¬†We started doing the cleaning last night and we’ll move room to room until we leave in a couple of weeks.

My Apologies

by

I want to apologize for not having a post written for my day today. Given the holiday and the day off yesterday, I got my days all mixed up and I forgot today was Tuesday. I fully intended on writing my post tonight (thinking today was Monday), until GF texted me, asking me when I was going to post:

GF: “Are you going to post today?”

Me: “I’m writing my post tonight but I won’t post it until the morning.”

GF: “It’s Tuesday, though”

After a few minutes thinking about it:

Me: “O #$%@. I forgot.”

Me: “The holiday really screwed me up.”

I spent the whole day at work before this point thinking today was Monday. So, instead of trying and failing to put something together, if you can forgive me, I’ll put together my post I was originally intending on writing and post it on Thursday (since Hope posts tomorrow).
