Sweepstakes are not as fun as they used to be

I used to love entering sweepstakes. I made sure I went to every website that I could and entered almost every sweepstakes that I could find. If I wasn't interested in the prizes I wouldn't bother. But if there was even a marginal interest, I was all over it. Lately I can't even be bothered to enter them at all. There are some that are only a email submission but I won't even do that.

I think part of it is because my computer is acting up. At most, I can usually spend about 45 minutes on the computer before I have to shut it down, wait a half hour then start again. Maybe once I get a new computer, I'll have fun with it again. Or until I win something really cool. Then I'll be all over it again.

I need a serious vacation

I mean somewhere that I can really sit down and relax. I don't want to have to think about anything. I'm looking at a family vacation in the Mexican Riviera. There's a resort called the El Dorado Seaside Suites that I have my eye on. First of all, it's adults only which is a plus. I don't want to hear any screaming children while I'm trying to relax.

They have swim up jacuzzi suites as well as having direct access to the beach. It's the ultimate in luxury. And believe me, I don't mind paying for luxury during vacation. There are also authentic Mexican tile and marble floors. It sounds like a dream and something that I would totally enjoy.

I haven't had a real vacation in about 3 years when I went on my cruise. I am so looking forward to my vacation next year and there is no time like the present to start saving for it.

Someone hasn't paid me

I usually get paid every week or two. I have to admit that I don't always keep track of who owes me money so it's easy to miss a payday. It's not a lot of money either. It's only about $10 bucks. But this is money that I replace to my savings account so I remembered it.

If I don't get my money by the beginning of next week, I'll have to email the people that owe me with a gentle reminder.
