So Hard to Say No Sometimes

July 22nd, 2017 at 11:52 am

So...my potential future brother and sister in law along with their son and daughter joined us at the cottage this weekend. They came in from Chicago and it's always so great seeing them. He and I exchange war stories, he helps me with a lake project (this year we redesigned a new ladder off the deck) and she is such an amazing friend. She is a doctor of child psych so her approach to everything is like water off a ducks back in comparison to the horror she sees/hears daily.

Anyway, this morning, none of us felt like cooking breakfast after the massive "lake drink" taste test we participated in last night. Very, very rare for me but the evening was perfect. A variety of dark beers, local wine, bloody mary mixtures and a family margeritta recipe.

So...considering he insisted on paying for the ladder supplies, I sprung for breakfast. $84.00 later, I must admit.....money well spent and zero cleanup. Currently sitting on the deck, reading Salems Lot, listening to Gordon Lightfoot and looking forward to the evenings chicken bbq. Peace all.

    What about accumulating cash for your next car? Wasn't that the plan?

    Absolutely. Loose Change and CC rewards are helping. Got a bit off task this weekend.

    I see potential BIL's generous payment of materials needed to build the ladder as 'snowflakes' and wonder if you'd consider adding the sum he expended to your New Car Fund. Unanticipated savings like that are important in major funding goals.

    Excellent idea! Thanks snafu!
