April was a busy month as a I had a big project at work. Because of my vacation the due date became “before you leave”. With the help of my co-workers we met the deadline but worked more hours than typical including weekends.
This was on top of the usual pre-vacation activity which includes grooming appointments, pet planning, and packing. I’m one of those people who packs a week in advance and this time it was right up to the day. Somehow, we made it.
Budget and Spending
We came back from vacation without any new bills. In fact I had half my spending money left (just couldn’t find anything I wanted to spend it on). It’s a great feeling.
The only unplanned expense was replacing a cracked windshield in my car. It went into the car wash with a decent crack, but was still drivable. It came out with a crack across the whole window and replacement couldn’t be put off any longer. This cost us $249 which came from the car repair sinking fund.
