Busy, busy October!

Construction is done. I have paid the final bill and now know exactly where we stand for paying off the bills. My goal is to have it all paid in 4 years. But in return, we have pretty much a new home that shouldn't need too much maintenance for many years.

We still have 2 expenses coming, the heating/air unit and a banister for the stairs...but we could make do without either if need be while we save. (we have a really good wood stove and a log deck to feed it)

My kids surprised me last weekend with a trip down to San Francisco to Levi's stadium to see the 49ers play the Greenbay Packers. If you know me, you know I am a HUGE Packers fan...the kids love the 49ers. This was a bucket list adventure for me. We had so much fun. Frugal, not so much- but definitely a wonderful shared experience for the memory books. And we were able to site see around San Fran for 2 days and have a ton of fun.

The hub is home again for three weeks. This weekend is a quiet one. I plan to bake tomorrow. Since it is October, ronza's are in order. (think hot pocket filled with beef and sauerkraut dipped in mustard- yum!)

Next weekend I get to go on a 3 day trip with a couple of girlfriends. One of the moms owns a timeshare, so we get to go stay at a nearby resort super cheap. We will hike, play games and visit. Us three haven't done a trip like this in about 7 years, so we are excited...this will be a frugal trip with most meals cooked at the condo we are staying in and the activities all free. Just good friend time.

Then, the following weekend, its our bi-annual family trip to a different resort. Just the adults, and a weekend of fun and being together. I get to have all my chicks in the same nest for 3 days!! I budget for this trip, so even though its not as is already paid for. We make all but one meal at home, and the entertainment is enjoying each other, walks, games, puzzles, and some cocktails in the evening.

Needless to say, October is one busy month this year!

    I think where I live is where the Runza originated. Smile At least according to NE. Smile I haven't tried one yet since they don't make a vegetarian variety - although I suppose I could try my hand at making my own. Smile
    It's great you are having such great trips!
