Keyboard Change & Vacation In Sight

May 23rd, 2008 at 09:41 pm

I've got 30 cents here on the keyboard to add to the $20 Challenge.

Day before yesterday we locked in our timeshare exchange for this year's upcoming vacation. It is within 4 hours driving time so that won't hurt too badly on the old gas budget. Now it's just a matter of getting all the boys' employers on board with the time frame.

There is alot to be said for never being absent and covering other's shifts for them, and they've both done a lot of that, so, here's hoping! In any case, they're going. If they have to find alternate employment upon their return? So be it.

2008 Challenge Total $119.96
Cumualtive Challenge Total $648.57

I've spent a bit at garage sales this week - $8.50 yesterday and $2.10 today.

This morning we spent our time outside doing some brush burning. Still cleaning up from the ice storm. There's still lots more to burn!

    Amber, we've still got a giant brush pile to burn and have approximately 30 big lawn leaf bags of small brush that's piled up waiting to be hauled off by the trash service - 5 bags a week is all they'll take over and above our regular trash cart. We've hauled about four truck loads of cut wood to my Dad & sister's place and there's probably four or five more truck loads here! Dad's is an hour away, sister's an hour and a half, so w/gas prices what they are, it may be awhile before we get down there with any more of it.

    It was/still IS a rip-roaring big ol'mess!! Please God no more ice next year!

    I have my fingers crossed that you will not have ice next year
