without a post from me. Bummer.
I’m not where I wanted to be with the financial stuff at all. I didn’t take into account all the trips we take and all the expenses that pop up here and there. We’ve almost got it 50% taken care of, but I really wanted to have it down more by this point. I’m a little frustrated with myself. Despite all that, I’m considering going home for spring break. As much as I want to save money, I want to spend time with my family more. Besides, I’m going to consider that my birthday present.
Last month was a complete wash for knitting and reading, but it was still an excellent month. Private Pinhead got to come home from Iraq for R&R. Mrs. Pinhead and Spicy also came to visit. So from 2/2-2/23, I had guests. I took them to do all the touristy things and we had a blast. Then 2/24 was Her Majesty’s 16th birthday (the month was also not good for saving money).
Here’s some excellent news…on the ship’s FB page, it was posted that they are finally headed back in this direction. I can’t say exactly when they will get home (opsec and all that), but I can say that I will see Sailor Boy again sometime before tax day. Time is going to drag now.
