Portland, Hip Dislocation, and College

August 14th, 2017 at 07:36 am

Lots of updates:

1) Portland vacation totals came in at $5,023 which is $977 under budget Smile We had a great time! Our youngest daughter has already started planning for next year's vacation which she is determined will be overseas somewhere. I have to start saving my pennies!

2) A couple of weeks ago, our oldest daughter went tubing on the lake with her friends. Long story short, she ended up with a dislocated hip of all things! The medics had to air lift her to the nearest trauma hospital. We had quite a scare but everything turned out as best as possible. She is fine now with no broken bones/tendons or any permanent damage. I was warned by the hospital that the bills will be hefty though... will update you guys as I get those.

3) I had to make our first college payment the other day and it hurt! Between tuition and room/board, we had to shell out about $12K for the Fall semester. Ouch.

    College IS expensive isn't it? I feel like the room and board is the most expensive part!

    So sorry about your daughter. That had to be very scary.

    Wow, she did that tubing? I guess the water can get pretty rough. Sorry about the injury and the hefty bills that are coming.

    #2 - Oh no! Sounds awful! Glad that she is okay.
