It’s been a busy month! Our evenings and weekends have been packed with events, friends, and responsibilities. I’m at the point where when a friend cancels, I’m thrilled. I even had to take a rain check on an invitation for dinner with this lovely lady. We’re looking forward to our next completely free weekend on May 21. (Sigh. That’s a long time.)
We’re not making extra income like we were in the fall when I worked after school three days a week. I miss the check, but as busy as we’ve been, I’m so thankful it’s no longer such a frequent commitment. It’s also been interesting to see what cooking for four has done to our budget. I also failed to get cash in my envelopes last month, which resulted in us coming in around $60 over budget. (It’s a miracle that it wasn’t more!) Since our month starts today, I plan to go to the bank tomorrow morning (or send Dexter) so I don’t make excuses later.
I was disappointed about the lack of extra payments we made this month. We paid off 0.8% of our debt and have 75.8% to go. Next month we’ll make another small extra payment, but I’m hoping it at least gets us down to 75%. The following two months should be much more fun!
Thanks for checking in on our progress!
