It’s a nice day today with blue sky and lower 80’s tempreture with slight breeze cooling sweat off my forehead. Not that I walked enough to break a sweat, but it would’ve if I did. It’s a perfect start to a three day weekend. I’m happy that I’m getting a day off on Monday, but I’m also sad that the summer is coming to a close. Kids will start school the day after Monday and all the community pools will be closing. I listed bunch of ideas to do for the summer in my previous post about summer mini vacations. I’m ashamed and bummed out to say that I didn’t get to do anything on the list.
So to close out the summer, we are taking a trip to New York. We initially approached another couple to see if they wanted to go camping with us. We met up to talk about the costs and other things and realized we didn’t have a lot of the equipments that we needed and wasn’t worth it to buy it at this point. So we moved on to the cabin idea. We also realized that with our budget, we can only afford ugly ones and because it’s a holiday weekend, most of places required 3 nights minimum. Then we finally moved on to the New York idea. The other couple had a voucher with a New Jersey hotel for 2 nights. So we decided that we can drive up to the hotel and take the bus to the city since there’s bus that leaves right at the hotel.
So our estimated cost for this trip is $485.00 per couple.
Hotel $20.00 for the tip
If we decide not to watch any show, we’ll probably spend that money on shopping. But only if I see a good deal on work clothes.
But I’m not 100% sure this trip will happen since the weather forecast is saying it’s supposed to rain Saturday, Sunday, and Monday. There’s a 30% chance of t-storm, but that percentage goes up to 60% in the evening time. If our hotel was in New York city, I wouldn’t mind as much, but since we have to commute from New Jersey, I don’t want to deal with rain at all. If this trip actually happens, I’ll post a recap of the costs and if it doesn’t, I’ll post a recap on other things I end up doing this weekend. Whatever it is that I end up doing, I need some fun time to relieve some stress.
What are you guys doing this weekend?
