Traveling expenses

I just got off the phone to my travel agent. I needed travel insurance, just in case I get sick while I am in colorado. Or in case I need a doctor or something. I didnt know if my travel agent did insurance, but when I asked, they did. She looked at all the different options and she gave me a price of 75 euro for a premier plus policy. I took it, because my thinking is, its better to be covered just in case something goes wrong. I am covered now from today, even though I am not traveling until May. She emailed the details on to me. She said if something goes wrong that I should wait until I get home to claim, unless of course I am in hospital or something, which hopefully wont happen. She did tell me the policy doesnt cover the corona virus. No insurance are covering that. Its only if the government tells you not to travel that you’d get your money back, if you cancel your trip without being told not to travel you lose all of your money. I’m not too worried about the corona virus though. I mean I know some countries have had a lot of people get it, but America hasnt had that many cases. If I wash my hands and sanitise them with the hand sanitiser I should be fine. I’m glad I’ve gotten travel insurance now, I also asked her about my visa, and where to go to apply for it. She told me to go to the ESTA website, but to make sure I was only being charged 14 dollars, because some sites are trying to cash in on people applying and charging astronomical fees. I googled it and I’ve seen the offical ESTA site, and so I know now where to apply for it. I am hoping to do that next week. I need my sisters help to complete the application. I have time anyway, I can do it some time this month. ONce I get the visa its valid for 2 years. There are so many hidden expenses when traveling. You buy you ticket and start saving your spending money and you think thats all you need to do but it isnt. Far from it. I’m just about done now though. I think I’m all set to go now.

Couldnt resist dessert

Well, I was baaad! I had dessert both yesterday and today. I just couldnt resist it, it was banoffee pie, one of my all time favourites.
My sisters partner made it for us. It was so delicious! I am not sorry I ate it! It was lush!
But besides having dessert on both days, I have been good. I havent eaten any chocolate at all, not one sweet which is a first for me.
Between now and Monday mornings weigh in my plan is to not eat any junk food. There is plenty of it in the house, but I am going to avoid it.
We’ll see if I can do it! I hope I can!

Working over christmas

I am working a lot this week. I am helping brenda out, brenda is my supervisor. She is short staffed, so I helped her out this morning. I worked for 3 hours this morning. I also worked yesterday afternoon but that was my regular shift. I am working tomorrow and on friday also. I dont mind. The office closes on Friday afternoon but we’ll continue to make calls over the whole christmas holiday period. I will just work from home for a few hours each day over christmas and the new year. I will have about 12 to 15 clients to call. There are 10 of us working it. I’m happy to do it. Some of our clients wont see anybody over the holidays so they are depending on our call. I’m happy I’m able to help.
