Planning — Winter 2019

Autumn Recap:

  • Wardrobe — I found that two of my 2nd layers aren’t warm enough for late Autumn and Winter, so they got put in the tote and I bought a sweatshirt. It is casual, but it suits my lifestyle and looks sporty and tidy when I wear it out in public. I switched out most of my t-shirts for long-sleeved t-shirts.
  • Weather — We had far more wet days than the average and are on track to have one of the wettest years on record (Since I post this seasonally, there are still some days of the year left.)
  • Activities — I did not go to Florida this year. There were too many things going on and I couldn’t justify the expense.
  • Budget — We kept current with any new medical bills and paid off medical debt of $400. We had a total loss claim on our vehicle. Hannah bought a 2019 to replace the 2013.
