This year it isn't going to happen.
You see Tim and I are committed to being debt free. We use credit cards but pay them off at the end of the month. This last statement was big, with a capital B! But we had our vacation on it (which was planned for) and new tires for the van. It had several other big needs as well. Because it was big, it ate up the 'discretionary' spending.
Now, before you feel too badly for me, know that Sunday afternoon through Wednesday I am getting a basically free trip to Williamsburg! One of my favorite places! And we are going along with our pals from Hospitality Lane! It is going to be so fun! Then home for Thanksgiving with Mom and Dad, Nate and Kay and Kamryn, Tim's brother Dan and family and our friend Denny. We are so blessed.
But just for the record I am disappointed. However to go would mean putting it on the credit card and having to stretch the budget way too much to pay for it. I love this day out with my girls. They are growing and changing so much...I love celebrating these special days with them.
I guess I will have to console myself by preparing for my trip this next week....
