Challenge Accepted, Aidan!
Jeff and Sue
This past week we met up with our coach, Aidan, for our monthly review. When we see her, she always asks how things are going and if we have anything important “going on” that she needs to be aware of. We told her that like last month, we felt that we weren’t doing enough so we were searching for other ways to cut our budget. We explained that we had discontinued a magazine and satellite radio subscription, but those changes were very minimal. We were not satisfied with these alone and wanted to do something more. Something that could have a bigger impact on this competition.

It also means no more air conditioner and hopefully a while before we have to turn on the furnace – we refer to this time as the “free zone.”

Dreaming of Sandy Beaches…Again
Jeff and Sue
The last time we took a vacation alone just the two of us was a four-day trip to Jamaica in 2004! The kids were young (we were too) and that was all we could afford at that time in our lives. Fast forward 14 years to 2018. There was a group of our friends planning a trip to Mexico in February 2019. We decided to jump on the bandwagon since we had devoted so much time and attention to Sue’s cancer treatments and surgeries.
