Well I got to see how they raised our property taxes. I flipped out last summer when the assessed value of our home went up 75% in one year. I had a conniption. DH said someone posted on our Facebook Be Neighborly group from the city council and he said we would have no raise in property taxes. Everyone's assessement was increased and this would mean we all have the same share of taxes so it wouldn't change. Well that was a blatent lie. Either way I am just annoyed at it. It went from $11k to about $15k a year. That is a hefty chunk of change.
We also decided to push back macchu picchu until summer 2024. That meant we had no real plans for the summer. So I began to think about what to do. DH wanted to minimize his vacation days (he'll have used 1 by august, but he gets 15 a year), and gets a 4 day weekend labor day so 4 days going somewhere the last week of August. I figured no more than a 6 hour flight. That put us on the east coast at most. So I picked florida and WDW. I read that a lot of schools are back in session, the season is getting lower and while it's hot, it's not any worse than any other time in summer except it supposed to be less crowded. We'll see what happens. DH is fine with a 4 day vacation and the kids want to go but didn't want to miss school which was the option was to pull them out october again.
The only things now are deciding how visiting my parents for summer and christmas will play out.
