Trip Total and More

July 26th, 2016 at 12:31 pm

Thanks to a couple of mystery shops, a small cash gift, and my Enterprise discount through my daughter, my trip total for 10 days was $325.92. I am pleased.

The visit went well and my son absolutely loved Michigan State. We will still take a day trip to Florida State, but he more or less made up his mind. He is in CT visiting his dad, but he is not taking him to UConn so it is out. I am upset he won't make the time to take him, but my son said he really doesn't want to live with dad full-time. He also does not want to live on campus.

As far as MSU, I would likely move back to MI next year. I am looking around a bit, but I will cross that bridge in the fall when it is a definite decision on his part. I am looking at towns within 25 miles so it is not a far commute.

I emptied out my short term savings today. I had the struts replaced on the car. The total was $672.36. I had $636 even saved up. I cash flowed the rest out of checking. I do need an alignment. The gentleman who fixed it referred me elsewhere and said the alignment would be $55.00. I will get that done next week.

While I was gone, my veggies grew! I have cucumbers and peppers ready to harvest. The tomatoes are getting close as well. I am excited. I have only tried gardening once before, and it did not go well.

    So one more year in florida? Then back to Michigan? Or are you from CT? What would the job situation be in Michigan?

    @LivingAlmostLarge I grew up in Michigan, but I left nearly 20 years ago. I lived in NH for several years. The job situation is not really a factor. I work from home; however, I wouldn't mind subbing to supplement my income. I will spend the next few months doing heavy research and comparisons on cost/quality of living. I do not want to move around the country again. I plan on this move being final.
