Nana is ok and the 2008 budget is done!

January 2nd, 2008 at 02:52 am

My moms surgery went well and she is out of the ICU today. She may even come home tomorrow.

I spent the day cleaning her home and putting my dad clothes away so she does not have to watch us pack them up.

I also spent some time on my budget. Finances are not as bleak as I was expecting. I had a heart to heart with the hub and we decided that we would give our new spending plan an honest effort.

The budget accounts for our normal monthly expenses, as well as those not so routine expenses...and also provides some money in to a 'miscellaneous' fund so that the unexpected things are covered.

Hopefully, this will enable us to build a nice "emergency" fund. Throughout the year.

Extra money earned will go towards debt until the debt and the emergency fund are fully funded. (unless there are mounting medical bills from another back surgery this year...then most will have to go to that.)

Tonight, was tv and popcorn. Cheap, mindless entertainment.

I will ask for your prayers again tonight that all goes well with the hubs back pain diagnosis tomorrow. I am expecting the news to include the word 'surgery' somewhere....

But for thankfulness is on nana's successful surgery and recouperation. I think she is going to bounce back totally and quickly.

    Best wishes to you and yours. It sounds like you are keeping a very level head all things considering. I am with you on the budget, we both agreed to give it a better effort than we have in the past.
