I paid bills this morning. Paid off my credit card and promptly booked a four night mini cruise 12-22 over Xmas on the Monarch of the Seas. I was so glad I had paid off my credit card. Why did I do this you might ask.
Well David and I each needed 2000 miles on Alaska airlines to pay for our airfare to Puerto Vallarta in June. By flying to L.A. for this four dayer, we then have the required miles and now we won't have to pay airfare to P.V. which saved us about $600 a piece. How's that for rationalization? It's sounding better all the time.
Hmmm, I used points to get to Phoenix in May for a friends wedding, paid for the hotel and air fare!!! :-)
Now I am quickly building up some more with my deposits for the "biggie" cruise next year, oh, and then there was the Glory, hmmmm! Part time work might be a good thing right now besides hiding the credit cards!
I've been trying to book the Monarch for weeks now ... just waiting for rates to drop. They do have some super rates in December (I think) with $199 for an inside. I'm hoping they will be down like that in January for my post-holiday cruise.
