As the title suggests I am taking a trip. I don’t call it a vacation because I am taking my children with me and ANYONE who has ever traveled with kids knows it is NOT a vacation.
We are driving down to Washington, DC. It’s about a 10 hour drive give or take. We have made this trip before. We have driven to Maryland 3 times before and it’s all in the same neighbourhood as far as I am concerned. We were supposed to be going back to MD but all the family I usually stay with are unable to put us up. 😦 So we going to visit different family. New family. Hopefully it will all go well.
I was planning to leave on Tuesday, but you know what happens when you make a plan … LOL So today I am rushing around like chicken with its head cut off in order to be able to leave tomorrow. So much to do so little time to do it. I need to get some US $. Thankfully my local TD bank is open on Sundays. I always thought it was not necessary to have a branch open on a Sunday. Today I am eating my words. 🙂
While away from home, my financial tracking is minimal to none. I go in full vacation mode when it comes to spending. I see, I want it, it goes in the cart. I am hoping that since I have learned about my July 2015 debt free date it will have some impact on what goes in the cart.
I will keep all my receipts and write down what I spend so I can give a full accounting when I return.
Until then, keep safe and spend less. Take care.
