The Hidden Long Weekend

Now that Halloween is over and done with, thoughts turn to Remembrance Day, at least for me. 

As a side-note, I had no trick-or-treater’s, as for some reason parents don’t want to take their kids to the industrial section of town and knock on the doors of RV’s parked there . . . funny that.

Back to Remembrance Day In years gone by I would go down and find some sort of Remembrance Day ceremonies to partake in.

Due to the fact that I drag Wanda with me wherever I go, so parking is a challenge and I refuse to drive downtown, in recent years I will watch the ceremonies on the TV.

This year November 11 falls on a Friday, so that means that it is a defacto long weekend. I am considering heading to the hills (I can watch the ceremonies from there).

Yet, with the fact that my budgets for November are so tight and my goals so lofty, it seems just too risky and reckless (financially) to do.

I could put it on a card, but I have just paid this one off (this upcoming payday) and so the rule is to keep it at a zero balance each payday. 

With this month being like it is, I won’t be able to do that and so I am back to carrying a balance . . . no thanks.

So, I will see how this payday actually is, and if I can somehow squeak out enough to pay cash for this retreat and still do what I plan to do, okay, I go, otherwise I won’t.

After all, my priorities are to get back to a level fiscal position so I can move ahead to get totally debt free by the end of next year. I can manage without heading to the hills to make sure that happens.

As always: Keep your head up, your attitude positive and keep moving forward!
