Apparently, I horded a large amount of my vacation time this year, so I’m taking the rest of the year off. This counts weekends and regular days off, of course, but as I write this I am relaxing and not thinking about work for 27 straight days!
Twenty-seven days! That’s nearly a month! We will be doing some traveling for Christmas, but I will also spend a few weeks at home.
This month I bought a 20-punch pass to a local hot springs, so I might take Little Miss to the springs a few times. Maybe we will get ambitious and try snow-shoeing or cross-country skiing. Will my house get cleaned? Probably not, even though it desperately needs it!
Mainly, I am hoping to rejuvenate. By the end of work, I was pretty worn down. I wasn’t sleeping well and always had a low-grade headache. I just need a break. A long break.
I have collected quite a list of blogs that publish their monthly expenses. A “New*” next to a blog indicates that it is a new addition to the Church of FI, not a new blog necessarily. Some of these blogs combine their net worth and expense reports. I like to compare my spending to these reports and try to improve where I can. Here is the lowdown on November’s expenses (published in December).
