Last five weeks I had one of my closest friends visit.
$14 087.14 Spent from me and $6000 spent from him.
We did much. Sky diving, white water rafting, bungee jumping, quad biking, go karting, shooting, hunting, water parks, amusement parks, top restaurants etc.
But I am glad it's over as it was more than the 10k I budgeted.

But the up news is this month's pay is $80k. It was originally projected to be 65K so the extra income pretty much just paid for the 5 week holiday. I wish it had hit the top line and not just caught up the bottom line. But as my wife has reminded me every time I check the accounts and begin hyperventilating, 'we have to live a little, scrooge mcduck'.

So we met our goal of 250k by December. We have decided to make the new goal $450 000.00 by December.
A stretch but if everything goes to plan (cough choke cough) we should be able to make it.

Will be spending the rest of this month just trying to find some semblance of a routine. The kids are tired of hotels/motel/hostels and campsites. Got to get back into their home schooling ready for September school start.
I think I put almost 3000 km's on my truck.

The ledger accounts put projected incomes for August and September at $25k and $15k.
Also get back to the gym. Too much rich foods have made my board shorts tight. I never thought I would say a 34 mens is tight Stick Out Tongue

payday in 10 days.
I will need a better theme song than Mj's "Beat it" with our new best cheque. Im thinking "im too sexy" by right said fred. Real mood setter.

    That was quite a holiday! It's fun to occasionally live like a king (or in my case, a queen) but it is always good to throw yourself into getting back to normal. Good luck with losing the holiday weight!
