The Good, The Bad & The Ugly

It's been awhile since I've done an edition of the good, the bad and the ugly so I figured it was time to bring it back!

The Good

I thought we were going to owe on our taxes and after many cold sweats I finally found out from our accountant that we don't owe! Thank goodness! Maybe my mom's affirmations worked but either way we don't owe any money. I had been worried about it for weeks and dreading hearing the news so that was a major relief to find out that we don't owe and we are actually getting a little back!

The Bad

My husband and I had to spend two weeks apart! His work sent him to a training for two weeks and it was located in Georgia. This had been the longest we had ever been apart since we started dating. We had only been apart for 3-4 days before this work trip. It felt a little weird being at home without him and my days off were very silent. Now that he's back we can get ready for vacation to New York City!

The Ugly

While my husband was away he took our large suitcase. Our luggage use to be my luggage before we got together. I've had that luggage since around 2006 and taken it tons of places. Well finally it gave up and the wheels fell off. It was a great set and this is the second bag that finally bit the dust. Since it was only a three piece set that leaves us with only one piece of luggage and it's the carry on size. So we had to bite the bullet and get some new luggage. I mean you can't go to New York with only one carry on for two people.

We were lucky though and got a great set for a good price. We each got a checked bag and carry on. Now we can spin our luggage 360 degrees and have the handlers through them around and nothing get smashed inside our hard shell luggage.
