What a beautiful morning, there has been a lot of those this summer so far. With summer just over half over it's good to start looking toward Fall now. At least just September itself. No news on the work front, that will probably come the last week of August for me. With my pending September raise, no one is choosing me for a permanent slot this year, just as well, it makes work easier for me for the time being. Besides I've learned to expect anything and nothing is set in stone so I'll roll with whatever waves come along.
Saturday I leave for 2 weeks in Mexico. Because of my Anime convention in Baltimore being late this year, I'm headed to Mexico later than I normally go. I'll be there right up until the very end of Summer vacation. I return the 31st, head to my best friends daughter's 10th Birthday BBQ on the 1st and then it's off to work on the 3rd. We have Thursday and Friday off for the Jewish holiday so it will be a painless week back. I managed to save up a nice chunk of cash for my trip this year and I'm proud of that. I'm still no angel with my spending, but I did get much better at my saving. I like to use cash for as much of this trip as I can every year, using my card for all the big stuff and sending the payments in full right to my credit card. Get's me a lot of points too that way. No interest earned, win win for me. Earned me a $100 gift card to Ruth's Chris steakhouse, that will be a delicious night out.
