Family health issues and Fiji Holiday

May 26th, 2010 at 03:00 am

A lot has happened to us this month that I donít even know where to start telling you about it. 3 weeks ago we had to go interstate for an emergency because of DHís grandmother, she was critical in the hospital, luckily she is now recovering. Without hesitation we flew out few hours after hearing the news. We stayed with my in-laws for few days, our accommodation and most of our foods were covered. We still however, spent all up $770+ on airfares, car rental, taxis, and a bit on food. Iíve decided that this money will come out of our Emergency Fund. I will probably repay the EF at the end of the year. I just want to achieve all my financial goals this year first before I do anything else.

2 weeks ago we went to Fiji for our holiday this year... it was fantastic! We stayed for a week, and spent a bit too much. We went over our budget by over $600! Oops! I have decided to take this money from our Sunny day savings. Our Sunny Day saving is for anything that we really feel like spending it on. In the past Iíve mainly used it to buy some shares. This is where my $5 per NSD normally goes into and in the past I used to also put $200 a month into it but I have currently stopped this regular monthly deposit. Despite the overspending we really enjoyed our holiday and wished we stayed longer (I will try to post some photos on the weekend).

It feels like we havenít been home at all this month. Financially, it is going to be a so-so month, there are some big bills due like our quarterly property rates/tax and a lot of medical bills for DHís injury. Also, in the last few days DH and I havenít been feeling too good. I think it is probably from too much travelling and the change in the weather, luckily we havenít really spent any money for it and we are now recovering well.

Hopefully, I will be able to catch up on everyoneís blog in the next few days. I missed you all.

    I have always wanted to visit Fiji, but I'm not surprised that you went over your budget on a trip like that! I think that keeping it to $600 has to lead you to feel pretty good about things. Does worker's comp insurance help out with DH's medical situation at all?

    Dh is still trying to organise it, he just needs to talk to some HR personnel about it. There's a form that he needs to fill out, he just need to get one of those form first.
