Taking a day off..

United States
May 5, 2017 6:56am CST
I'm not working today.. I gave myself a 3 day weekend! Woohoo! Originally hubby and I had planned to go away for the weekend. Sunday will be our anniversary, and next weekend is my birthday. We planned to go to Atlantic City for this weekend, so we both requested the weekend off.. However, after our vacation with the kids a couple weeks ago, and needing to replace the brakes on my van, we just don't have the money to go away right now. So hubby will go to work at both of his jobs all weekend, but I kept the day off that I requested. My license will expire next Friday on my birthday. I will go to the DMV today to get that taken care of. Then I will do my grocery shopping and some other errands. Then I'll spend the rest of the day relaxing and maybe watching a couple movies. With all this rain we're having, Atlantic City probably wouldn't have been much fun anyway...

As I don't have time during the work week to renew my license, that was a primary reason for keeping my day off.

So sorry you can't your anniversary or birthday in Atlantic City. With this rain, you're better off doing your errands and taking it easy.

Forsure! Although spending my day off running errands isn't exactly fun!

@katsmeow1213 Less to worry about is my motto. Enjoy your anniversary on Sunday. You and your hubs will have many more years to celebrate together.

Well, if Atlantic City may have been rain-filled, it may not have been the best place to go anyway. At least you have time to get things done and relax a bit. Wishing you a very happy anniversary!

Thank you! I'm sure it would have been expensive and not much fun in the rain. We can try again another year.

We have been wanting to go camping for 2 weeks now but the rain and cold weather has stopped those plans. And now our 2nd car has broken down and it's not worth fixing. So we have to buy another car. It won't be brand new but close, I told hubby it has to be at least a 2014 we are getting older and don't want problems anymore with cars.

I hear ya there! I have a 2011, it's the newest car I've ever owned. I've had it almost 2 years now, and still have quite a few more payments to make on it, but I love having a reliable vehicle I don't have to worry about!

Happy belated anniversary!!!! But I can say happy early birthday ! Hope you got a lot done . . . getting things off the checklist always helps and hopefully it got you ahead for the weekend. Sorry you couldn't go on your trip this time, but it's definitely something to look forward to when the time is right!

Thank you. He wants to go out to dinner Sunday. My boys want to go see a movie, and we only have enough money for one thing... decisions decisions.

So far I've just done a lot of grocery shopping, and that was stressful and hectic as always! Oh well, I now have the rest of the day to myself!

Sometimes a staycation can be just as fun. Have you been to Atlantic City before? Hope you have a great weekend.

No I've never been to Atlantic City. I really just needed a day to be able to run some errands as I'm not able to during a typical work week.
