Good to see more people join us.
How is everybody doing?
We are holding up all-right. We were able to free up some money by trading in the car and taking on car payments for the same amount but for a longer period of time. The money was spent on zeroing a CC account (well, not actually zero it as we still have 6 payments of loans drawn on that card to meet previous late payments but zero the current astronomical balance. Did that make sense?
The BIG challenge will be receiving houseguests (a family of 4) for a month. They will travel halfway across the world to stay with us for 30 days. We are already getting twitches thinking about all the extra expenses we will incur in during this time. Besides the obvious, there will be numerous daytrips, higher electricity bill, groceries, etc. No matter how much your guests help out, you still end up spending a fortune. I speak from experience, we have visitors from abroad at least once a year for an equal period of time.
Any suggestions for free or inexpensive things to do? Between us we will have 3 kids who are 2,3 and 5 years old and ACTIVE!
