I'm back

April 5th, 2015 at 05:32 am

Well, I'm back from my six day trip to visit my Queen (my Mom). I'm happy to say that she is healthy and still pretty lucid. Overall, I enjoyed sleeping to the ocean breeze but the roosters were pretty annoying Smile Island life is quite different and even though I've not lived there since I was 12 years old, it does not take too long to get used to it. I went over my budget about $120 but this was mainly due to the fact that I opened a bank account to which I will send funds for my Mom. I usually send her United States Postal Service money orders. Now all she has to do is use the ATM card to buy food or medicine.

Before I left, I made my usual deposits to the Emergency and Retirement Home funds. We managed to live on my income and bank my husband's income again in March. I am not sure we will be able to do the same in April since the kitchen granite happened to cost $1K more than anticipated and the credit card bill is pretty high. I'm okay with that.

I leave you with a late afternoon picture of my hometown beach.
