Happy Summer Ya'll.
Things are rockin' and rollin' on my end. Finally, finally seeing the light at the end of the tunnel when it comes to our financial journey. We are on track to be debt free by the end of the year (minus the house)!
As I type this I am listening to Dave Ramsey and it's so motivating! I think our original plan was to be done by August but we had to cash flow some other medical bills and took some money to do some fun things. It's hard to find a happy medium between spending and saving.
My new job is going great and I love learning new things every day. My co-workers are amazing and love being a part of a great team.
I had a random dream about dad the other night. He looked like his old self and I remember thinking he looked so handsome. I miss him so much.
In May we went camping a lot and had a blast.
The first trip was with some friends of friends that own some property on the river. We had a pig roast and that was interesting to say the least. It was a great weekend just to relax and get away.
The next trip was with mom and her friends up at Elkmont. It is the prime spot to see the synchronized fireflies. This brings people from all over and we got lucky enough to get a spot in the campground to whee we could walk to see them. It was amazing! I definitely would go to it again.
On a separate occasion we spent the day in a kayak- that was sort of fun. We are definitely novices and manage to flip it twice! Once we decided to sit in the bottom of the kayak we managed to keep it together. It's funny now but at the time I was thinking I wanted to turn around and go back! We ended up being on the lake for about 7 or 8 hours and by the end we were exhausted. We definitely had a good workout!
We have also found ourselves going to some great concerts. Thanks to Spotify we have found some great bands. Chris and I went to Cincinnati to see the Turnpike Troubadours and had an absolute blast.
Last weekend we went to the Shed in Maryville to see the Damn Quails.. another band Chris found on Spotify. Tomorrow night we are off to see Jamey Johnson with some friends in Greeneville, TN. Should be fun!
