No more putting it off despite the cost

May 31st, 2008 at 04:40 pm

Monday I am leaving for San Diego with my daughter to visit my mother/her grandmother. Tickets and rental car are paid for - they weren't cheap. Fortunately, I'll be there until Thursday, so this won't be an expensive trip.

I will be bringing only one checking account and my debit card to it - no credit cards! I've got a set amount in the account while there; my plan is to be careful not to spend extravagantly. I'll be asking myself if I need this item, or need that one.

I felt the need to go see my mother, especially after she experienced what might have been a mini-stroke. Life is a very complex entity; for many of us we can never know when our time is up on this planet. I wasn't there for my father's passing on, but he and I were estranged. Also, he had an extremely painful death from cancer. I seriously doubt I could have handled watching him suffer.

My mother is healthy and robust despite having had surgery just recently. She is looking forward to going back to work; staying home and simply relaxing isn't her forte.

Anyways, whatever money I end up coming back with will end up going to the $20 Challenge. I feel if I keep my focus on the challenge, it will be to my advantage.

    Have a safe trip. Hope your mom is feeling better soon. I think it is a great idea that you are leaving the CCs behind
