Explanation of the Two Trips on Sidebar

January 31st, 2017 at 02:22 pm

I updated my sidebar. I thought I would explain the two trips. A few weeks ago my daughter decided she was going to drive up to MI in March. My grandma isn't in the best of health, so she wants to see her asap. She was going to do the drive on her own. Her best friend is going, but she doesn't have a license.

Anyhow, we talked, and in the end I decided to join her and help drive. I am paying the difference in gas for her to swing over to the far end of the panhandle to pick me up. Basically, everything figured in, my portion going to run no more than $200. We are driving straight through. We have a place to stay and most, if not all, of our meals are covered. My uncle will be in town from Florida too and insists on covering meals. My parents also tend to want to feed us. We are packing food for the car. I have a refund coming from the cable company (another nightmare story) and will use that money for this trip. In addition to helping my daughter drive and seeing my grandma, I want to look at towns where I am considering living. This takes the burden off sending friends and family to do it for me.

The New Hampshire trip is not set in stone. One of my close friends is getting married Labor Day weekend. I really want to go, but she knows about the major move and totally understands if I cannot make it. I will see how the move all works out and decide in June on that one. I won't do it unless I can cash flow it from regular spending and any potential leftover moving fund money.

I also wanted to note the moving fund is just the cost of moving our stuff. I already have money set aside for first month's rent and a security deposit.
