If it is "5 o'clock somewhere," does that mean it can be 5 o'clock anywhere and all the time?

Smile ** OK - SO WHAT DID I DO WITH ALL THAt $ ?? **

Well, after spending a few weeks deciding what to do . what to do, what to do...............



I decided to do something "totally" insane with the money -
and in the process celebrate -



and move forward and away from the debacle over my newly March 2013 Collette Vacations.com canceled vacation that I didn't choose to cancel.
(TAKE NOTE HOW I HAVE NOW CHANGED THE TITLE OF THIS TR TO REFLECT MY NEW ADVENTURE)


I.......



er........


Well you see.........





I decided to pay (ahead) 14 months of my home mortage ALL AT ONCE!!


SIDENOTE:
- (I decided to go this route since approx 90 days out from any vacation is just IMO too soon of a turn around time to research, find and then plan any vacation & that moreover, I always have a 'bad habit' of turning vacations into adventures) -




ANYWHO -
Now, let me tell ya, it was funny getting my bank to reverse off the huge credit I had on my Disney credit card and apply it against my mortgage.




Meaning,
they told me there would be a '$XXX.xx' advance payment charge applied to my credit card if I did that.


HUH????





So I asked the bank rep if they could process me a refund check.
She said yes.

I then said
why not print one up now for me, I sign it and then give it right back to you to apply to my mortgage account.

She looked at me as if I had lost my mind.




It took a few days, but I got the refund check in the mail, took it promptly to the bank and now have 14 months of my home mortgage all paid off @ once- which is good.
Hopefully now that will speed up how much I have left to pay on my mortgage.



THE BANK'S REACTION TO ALL THIS? followed very quickly by.




So,
I decided to celebrate and have a meal that would bust all meals; courtesy of SUBWAY (my fav place to visit):

(a foot-long chicken sandwhich & 6 choc chip cookies) = YUM!!


and what meal just wouldn't be complete without -


** that's a BLUE BELL cookies & creame chocolate milkshake with 'Manheim Steamroller' powdered cinnammon hot chocolate sprinkled in for good measure. **



I thought of adding whip creame to it but hey......since this meal was "0" calories , why add extra calories to it??




ANYWHO -



Along the way of all this celebrating, I finally figured out what to do with my vacation time coming up in March.









UP NEXT




Still keeping in the spirit of wine tasting 101 & other pre-trip assorted silliness AND as a side note, meeting up with my Disneyland vacation planner for an upcoming December 2014 adventure into Anaheim California.
(okokokokok.....so I am getting a little ahead of myself)
