Weekend Retreat

We put an extra payment towards the mortgage and realized as long as we get the balance down between $58K and $60K this year, we are still on track to paying off the house in the next 3 years. I started a new column in my spreadsheet to track the property taxes on the house because I always seem to not sock enough away and then it hits me, so Im budgeting better in this regard.

I booked us a nice 4 star resort for the weekend with some of our splurge money. I love the rooms that have the jacuzzi in the room. I dropped our dog off this morning at a friends house and gave him a treat for being a good dog. Im going to finish a great water cooler story and post it here on Monday. Stay tuned! :)

I'm jealous - a warm jacuzzi is sounding pretty darn good right now! I hope you have a blast!
