My daughter turns 2 the end of this month so our daycare should be going down by $1 per day. Its not much but I will take it. I’m so happy with her new daycare. I don’t pay for holidays that they are closed so it is about the same price or even cheaper. I paid $120 per week before and I now pay $25 per day now. I’m not sure if I have to pay for days that she is sick and doesn’t attend or not. I would think that we do have to pay for those days but Y seemed to think not. He’s the one who initially set Lil’ Punk up at this daycare so they may have told him that. I will check on that.
I paid an extra $50 this month on my student loan. My initial goal for 2011 was to get it below $6000. It now sits at $6973 but my payment hasn’t hit yet for July. That will bring it to just under $6900. Assuming the other regular payments for this year, it will be at $6500 approximately. I think that I’m going to leave my goal of under $6000 for the year. I had thought about aiming for $5000 or under for my student loan this year but I think that may be stretching it considering my other goals for this year.
We went kayaking on a nearby lake last night with friends. We already have our kayaks and gear. We picnicked at the lake. I brought sandwiches and my friend brought grapes and chips. I didn’t go to the store to buy anything special for the sandwiches. I used turkey that I already had and egg salad. I also had one peanut butter and jelly for Lil’ Punk but it turns out that my friends’ kid wanted that to. I really like hanging out with friends and just doing whatever. It’s nice not to have to worry about being on your best behavior or making something fancy. We had a really good time lazily kayaking and swimming in the lake. It was a late night as we didn’t get home until 9 pm but there are only so many warm summer nights.
I really like leaving comments for my fellow bloggers. I like for you to know what I’m thinking or offer a couple words of encouragement. I’m not able to comment when I have to log into Blogger because my computer is older than dirt. I have my comments set to where anybody can leave a comment with their name/URL. I would encourage more of you to do that so I can leave you comments. I appreciate all of the comments that I get. I know that I often don’t comment on your comments but I am grateful that you took the time to put your thoughts onto my blog.
We’re having a freakin’ heat wave here. Soooo hoootttt! Lovin’ it!
