Florida trip and update

July 6th, 2011 at 05:29 am

My DS#2 and I will be going to Florida next Wednesday for 12 days. DS#2 is too busy with work and school and is not able to go. Hubby is also working so it's just the two of us going. I plan to take him to Magic Kingdom, Universal and a water park. The rest of the time there we'll use the pool and family get-together. I know that it's brutally hot in Florida this time of year, but this is the only time we can go and spend a little more time with the family.
The cost of the airfare was $496.80. I haven't decided what the budget will be for this trip.


It's been close to a month since the school year ended, which means no work for me until September and I'm proud to say that we have not tapped into our savings to pay any bills yet. The mortgage is paid up to October 1st and the rents from the rental property so far have covered food and the bills. I even managed to put $300 into savings and $100 towards the mortgage principal.


I should be able to get a $25 gift card from Amazon soon using my Chase reward points and I'm very close to getting another $5 amazon gift card from Swagbucks.

This is it for the financial updates. I hope everyone has a great work week.
