A Round of Golf

El Mirage, Arizona

Sometimes I am surprised at how little Rich and I are spending on this journey compared to what I thought it would cost.

Sure, we have the huge expense of buying Homer. And then there is the cost of diesel to move from place to place. Homer gets a whopping ten miles per gallon.

But motor home insurance and registration have been less than we anticipated, and there are a lot of standard expenses we don’t have because we’re homeless: no property taxes, no utilities bills, less than half the auto insurance because we’re down to two cars and one is in storage.

All that being said, we are still incredibly tight with our money on some stuff.

Case in point–we are struggling with paying extra for Internet.

Actually, I should say were struggling. I’m not struggling anymore…

I started looking at our resort neighbors and most of them golf once a week. And good for them.

imagesSo I got to thinking, I don’t golf and pickleball doesn’t cost me anything for my daily sweat.

What if I pretended I golfed and applied my golf round money toward my Internet cost?

Problem solved. Now I have no problem paying for Internet.

Hmmm… I wonder what else I can justify buying because I don’t play golf… 🙂

  1. Oh how I missed not seeing this blog this morning. Thought I would check one last time, yipppeee here it is. I so love this blog and the way you write. Like I said before Kathy, we would all chip in to pay for you to have internet because everyone loves this blog. Life is so short, just have fun, you don’t have to justify at this stage in your life.

    1. Thanks, Lorraine. Just a really crummy connection last night and then, of course, pickleball this morning. 🙂 That’s why today’s post is late…

  2. Let’s see; what else instead of a round of golf…..

    A weekly massage, a facial, large amounts of Diet Pepsi, chocolate stash, books, music, magic candy…. I am in!

    1. Just think of the possibilities, Carol! A cheap round of golf is between $20 and $30. But a round at a PGA course is a couple of hundred. I could justify a bunch of gifts to myself if I pretend I’m not golfing at Pebble Beach… 🙂
