A little update

May 22nd, 2016 at 08:00 am

My niece returned home yesterday. She stayed with us for eight days. I spent about $250 dining out, buying her a few clothing articles and few other gifts during her stay. I don't regret it; I see her maybe once a year for a few days and she is a very kind and simple soul. I do worry about her future since there is very little opportunity for her to become independent and I think my brother and his wife are in so much debt. Let's see what happens. I'm also extremely proud of my boys because they really took care of her while she was here. They are very generous and loving.

On another note, I decided to stay put and see how long I can stay at my job. As of today, I'm putting myself on a spending freeze, especially on the eating out department. It's gotten very crazy lately with that and needless to say, eating out is quite expensive. I will try to hoard as much money possible so that when the time comes, I'll have more freedom to explore other options if needed. Luckily, we have an extended weekend and I won't have to be at work tomorrow and next weekend will be a five day weekend for me with Memorial Day coming. The district gave us back two unused snow days. This will give me some time to recharge and pull myself together in anticipation to the end of the school year.

    I hope having made the decision to stay (for now) gives you some peace of mind. Will you be able to have the summer off? I think you need to recharge your batteries.

    Wow, lucky you - two unused snow days! Here in Maryland, the school year was just extended by two days because of too many snow days.
