My Europe trip was awesome! We had 2 days in London, but one of them was marred by Jet Lag. Seriously, like I could sleep on the plane on the way to London! So, we landed, and started with the touring right away. By 8 pm I was miserable from being so sleep deprived and needing a shower. Of course we go to Europe during their worst heat wave. But, we saw lots of awesome things and had a great time! Then we were off to Caen and the beaches of Normandy. It was awe inspiring! Then we went to St. Malo. Seriously, go there!!! Its gorgeous and wonderful. We stayed there for 2 days. Then off to Paris, which was my least favorite. It was loud, dirty, and crowded. The Louvre was cool though. I wish we had more time at the museum, but again, like Paris itself, loud and crowded. After 3 days in Paris we were off to Brugge and Brussels! 2 words: Belgian Chocolate! It was amazing. Belgium is so quirky I loved it! I am happy to be home though. Travel is exhausting and expensive! (below are just a few of my pictures!)
Just before we left we spent 9k on a new AC and furnace. Friday we discovered that sewage was backing up into our basement. I so do not have the money for this. Our credit is maxed from the AC purchase and we JUST got back from vacation so our savings is nonexistent. Home ownership is KILLING ME! How do you all handle these unexpected expenses? Not being able to use water since Thursday was not cool. I have 2 weeks worth of laundry to do from our trip. So, I am currently in a hotel that our insurance is covering since, you know, toilets are a necessity and right now, we can’t use ours. (Like I haven’t had enough hotels lately! At least they found one that allows dogs since we couldn’t leave them at home). Buy a house, they said, it will be great, they said. When does it get great?
So, yeah, the good was the trip, the bad is my bank account, and the UGLY is the poo water in my basement. Thats my life right now. At least I am off work until August!
So, whats new with you this week? Did you read any of the same books I did? Did you find any great book deals I need to grab ASAP? Let me know in the comments!
