Looking forward to Fall

August 9th, 2010 at 04:58 pm

The heat is really getting to me. It was 104 today and the heat index was around 112. I am so looking forward to fall..but fall here doesn't hit until end of September or first of October.

We completed most of the school shopping this weekend with the exception of a few odds and ends. We caught some good sales at the outlet mall yesterday and had a gift card from hubby's work so the clothes are bought with the exception of sneakers for dd.

My paycheck and bonus hit the bank over the weekend. I will be transferring the bonus into savings, as well as part of my paycheck to prep for the end of month mortgage payment. I am finding that we are really strapped at the end of the month because I am paying all of the mortgage payment out of that last check. Between hubby and I we get 4 paychecks per month. So I am going to start taking 1/4 of the mortgage payment from each check and putting it in savings until the mortgage is due. We will see how it goes.

The kids will be going to my Mom and Dad's this weekend for one more mini trip before school starts on the 23rd. Hubby and I are going to work on installing the wood floor in dd's room.

Hope everyone has a great week!

    Good plan with the mortgage payment. I had to pay ours that way back when my DH was paid weekly. One check alone wouldn't even cover the mortgage back then.

    I am looking forward to fall also! I can't take any more of this sweaty summer. Generally as a rule, I would take warmth over cold any day, but this year's just too hot, sticky and gross.

    Wow, that heat would get to me, too! Glad that you are going to have to time to finish projects and I hope that the flooring leads to a nice change. We love our wood floors and would not change them for anything. I agree with pippi above, I really prefer Fall because it usually offers some insurance of lower temperatures but still lovely sunshine.
