Just Couldn't Stand It

August 27th, 2014 at 04:38 pm

I just couldn't stand it, I had to make a mortgage chip! I decided to pay an extra $35.28, just to make the balance a nice round number. Yes, I need to be saving cash. But, it made me happy, so I did it!

Things have been going very well with BF and I. I enjoy his company so very much. I know getting his mom's house ready to sell has been so hard for him, but he is powering through. Of course, when you gut the kitchen all the way down to the studs in the walls, it often takes longer than expected to get everything done. But, the house is almost there. I will take pics this weekend and post them.

My mother is considering booking a cruise for 4. This particular trip sails from LA and visits Cabo, Puerta Vallarta, and Mazatlan. It is a 7 day trip. My mother wants to do this trip with J, yours truly, nephew, and herself. The price is quite reasonable at $499 + port tax of $95, per person. I know I said no more vacations until after my next car is paid for, but I'm not going to turn down a trip someone else is offering to me. I will have some costs of course. I told her I would pay for the gratuity and to park my car for a week. I will also probably pay for our gas down and back. I may pay for J to do a fun excursion or two, depending on what is offered.

    Please don't say no! That's a phenomenal price $ 71. per day so long as it's an enjoyable ship not one of those 'Costa' problematic cruise lines. I'm guessing you know you can make your own arrangements for excursions for about 50% of the cruise linked ground trip. We were overwhelmed by offers from locals with vans conveniently parked nearby who understood exactly where to go and gave us more opportunity to see things important to locals than touristy shops, restaurants and sites.
