Today is the last deposit from PPP going into my Disney fund account. I have a small check at home that I still need to deposit. Once I get that in there, we will officially have $1691 for spending money for our trip to Disney. That $1,691 will cover gas, groceries, gift tchotchkes (although we’ll get off light on this since my entire family will be vacationing with us), parking fees and money spent inside the parks themselves. This averages out to $211 per day (including our travel days). I’ve already calculated that the roundtrip cost for gas will be about $250. Taking that out of the equation, we really have more like $180/day including travel days. Which is still pretty darn good since there’s NO WAY we’ll spend that much on travel days.
And actually, I just realized – that’s not everything! I have $60 in AmEx gift checks at home to use AND I believe I’ll be getting $200 from the medical study next Wednesday morning. I don’t know if that’ll be via AmEx gift check or an actual CHECK, but either way, I forgot to add that money – so we really DO have about $211 per day when you consider the AmEx stuff will pay for the gas costs.
With any luck we’ll bring some home – my goal is to bring some home. I’ve decided I want a Wii. I know I said I’d “never” have a video game in the house, but the Wii Fitness just looks too cool not to try (c’mon – hula hooping? bowling? I’m all over that!) and would be more expansive than just doing Dance Dance Revolution on a used PS2.
