Archive for September, 2011

DH and I finally went and got our passports done last Friday. Gosh! It was expensive. DH had to replace his since he can't find it. We have torn the house apart and also checked the safety deposit box. We have no idea where it is. In the end, he may have ended up having to replace it anyway since is was approximately 15 years old. Not sure if it was actually expired or not but they said it probably shouldn't slow it down much if at all.

I know he had it on the last cruise we went on in 2004 but now it is nowhere to be found. At that time, you weren't required to have a passport for a cruise so I just used a certified copy of my birth certificate. Of course, now, you need it for any travel outside the states.

Feels good to get it done but I had no idea it would be so much. $110 each and then $25 each to the city for handling/sending it in. Yikes!

I made a roast chicken

Ugh....lots of money out the door today.

Mortgage: $961

Credit Card: $750 (pd in full)

Deposit down on dd2's club soccer $200

I also had our travel agent charge $1000 to towards our cruise in April. That won't hit the credit card until next due date though.

I got paid on Wed and dh gets paid on Friday. I hate it when we get paid the same week. DH gets paid every other Friday...never changes. I on the otherhand, get paid on the 15th and either the 30th or 31st. It is usually fine but I like it much better when we are paid on opposite weeks....kind of like getting paid every week. Makes the cash flow much better.
