I just looked at the calendar and I see we have five paydays in July. I love it when that happens. Now that Angie is no longer an influence This will be an additional 2,239.00 I can put into savings. This next month will look fantastic.
If things work as I anticipate I will be able to use that money to pay for Carries vehicle and not influence our additional savings.
Update: We are not purchasing a vehicle for Carrie when she is here, Daryl is going to rent the Explorer to us for $100.00 per week while she is here and she will be driving me to work and picking me up. This will allow us to put that additional money into savings and also save a little on the trips to and from work.
Also, today is Juneteenth or something like that and we actually get this day off. Strange as it may sound but yep.
What is Juneteenth? Well I wondered the same thing and this is what I found.
“Juneteenth is a federal holiday in the United States commemorating the emancipation of enslaved African-Americans. It is also often observed for celebrating African-American culture. Originating in Galveston, Texas, it has been celebrated annually on June 19 in various parts of the United States since 1865.“
It just became a federal holiday June 17, 2021. No wonder I had never heard of it. I wonder what they took away from the employees at the bank I used to work for when they introduced this new holiday. If they do I’m sure it would seriously piss some people off. When they introduced Martin Luther King Jr. day as a federal holiday the bank where I worked then took away our birthday holiday instead of added the additional day off. With the possibility of being labeled racist why the hell are we adding all these holidays for other races and taking others away????
I love surprise three day weekends!
