Shook it off

November 23rd, 2020 at 06:14 pm

The bloggers on this site are so inspiring and supportive of each other.  THANK YOU for indulging me in my last pity party post rather than beating me up.  I am happy to say, it was a very short-lived tantrum, and life is back to whatever normal means. 

The rental company of the house I reserved initially was kinda nasty about my postponing the trip.  I get it.  But when there is a statewide mandate of no more than 6 people from 2 households allowed, and our plans were 20 people from 3 states and 5 households, I would think they might be a little more understanding.  Alas, the next day they called and gave me a full refund travel voucher for use at a later date, which is all I wanted.   So we can re-plan the trip anytime before May 31.

I had bought the grandkids each a big throw as a side gift for Christmas.  (The trip IS still the GIFT).  I have asked parents to please explain that the trip is STILL the GIFT from gma and papa.   They will get their blankets at Christmas and we will enjoy time together as we can until the trip!

Having the hub home is a little challenging on my frugal plans, as I suspected it might be.  Smile  But I give him credit for at least trying.  Our grocery bill was much highr than what I have been spending- but we also have more options, which I know make him happier.  I will plan to stay more frugal during those weeks when he is gone for work.  It's all about balance and marital bliss.  Big Grin
