I just got the first paycheck that had some overtime in it. I was able to pay off all my bills/credit cards (I wasn’t budgeting well right after my daughter died, for obvious reasons.) Now I’m free to start saving up for the memorial garden and the gravestone. I think after 2 paychecks I will have that money, maybe 3. Everything after that, plus my tax return, will be for traveling!
Current realistic travel plans:
NYC for a weekend
Chicago for a weekend
Big trip in the fall… depending on who’s coming with, Greek Islands and Cappadocia or just Cappadocia/Istanbul/Turkey’s Aegean and Mediterranean coastline.
