Time to Regain Some Balance

July 1st, 2019 at 08:03 am

Yikes, it's been a month. We've had the lovely Juliette from Lyon, France with us for 2 1/2 weeks, but she'll be leaving Sunday. And as fun as it's been, it's been tough on the budget. We've been to a dairy breakfast, way too many meals out, the art museum, the public museum, the Brewers' game, a day train trip to Chicago and up the Willis Tower, the boat trip on the river, the Art Museum, then to Spring Green to Frank Lloyd Wright's Taliesin and an overnight in Madison. Good thing I'm getting paid this summer or my budget would be shot. Less expensive outings on the docket for this week.

In other news, my DH has had his contract extended until the end of the year, and it appears my DD will be switching jobs in search of more work hours. Hopefully that will allow me some time to catch up--and I have serious catching up to do.

Grabbing onto these last two months of summer and making the most of them.

    Glad the hubby’s contract was extended. Outside of the bang to the budget it sounds as if you all had a great time building memories

    Sounds like a really fun visit! I would love to see Taliesin some day. I learned a lot about Frank Lloyd Wright when I read "The Women."

    Glad on contract extension! Sounds like a fun time with your French gal! If you recall, our time with the Italian was a debacle! Smile

    CB: It's not a far drive for you--a couple of hours and the surrounding area is beautiful.
