    Happy Monday!

    I usually hate Mondays, but this is one is ok so far!

    Made my last student loan payment this morning - 29 months. So happy to be done with them! Makes it worth throwing award money, tax refunds, and way-over-minimum monthly payments eating at my monthly budget to have them gone!

    And my new laptop just arrived at my desk - which is good because my nearly 5 year old one was clicking up a storm this morning. I think it knows that it can soon go to a better place.

    Now if only we could pick where to go on vacation this summer - anyone been to the USVI, St. Lucia, or other fabulous Caribbean destinations not named Jamaica/DR/Mexico?

    yeah and she's in-state for vet school. If she had gone to ISU, she was looking at a quarter million.

    I have been to St. Lucia, St. Kitts, Nevis, Grand Bahama, St. Marteen, Anugilla, and Antiugua. Treat yourself as a guest, not a tourist. If choosing Jamaica, hit the interior. You will find the soul of the island.

    I'll be looking at almost $60K for out of state tuition..... Hoping the landscape business stays the way it is in May when I graduate.

    Skip the Caribbean for the winter. Lots of fun places to go when its not already cold.


    If that is your only time, Jamaica was amazing. We did Couples Negril.

    of those, which did you like best? And where did you stay in St. Lucia? I've wanted to go there for a couple years now, but want to stay in the Soufriere region which is more expensive.

    It's crazy how much new grads are stuck with.

    Summer works best for us (plus most of these places are cheaper then) and we went to Jamaica (Couples San Souci - want to go to Negril someday too!) so we're trying to go to a different island.
