Money Matters

2007 will be a major spending year for me.

$ = just a bit
$$ = 3-digits (mid to upper)
$$$ = 4-digits (lower-end)
$$$$ = 4-digits & up.

LASIK – $$$$ – No more glasses, so it will be worth it! Right now, one thing bugging me about this is the change in schedule that I only heard about yesterday. Plus, the description of the entire procedure freaks me out a little. My eyes have been sensitive ever since I had “pink eye,” so I don’t know how they will react to the surgery.

Braces – $$$$ – I’ll be paying this over the course of the next 2-3 years. I think I’ll start the whole “teeth removal” process in July since 1) I haven’t even consulted with the oral surgeon yet, and 2) I’ll be out of town until then. This means I will not have a “metal mouth” while in Spain!

Spain – $$$ – Airline tickets are already paid for. Now it’s just the expenses of when we’ll actually be there. Since I made a bulk of the ticket purchases, the sister will be covering some of the other expenses, so maybe it won’t be so bad after all.

Wine Tasting in Lompoc – $ – Amanda invited a bunch of us to her hometown for a wine tasting weekend. Her mom has the hook-ups, so pricewise, it shouldn’t be too bad. The plan is to drive down on Friday night and back up again Sunday night.

PDX House – $$ – The tenants called me, and there may be some repairs and exterminations to be paid for. Dagnabit. I don’t know how much all that will cost.

While expensive, it should be a fun year!
