2014 off to an expensive start!

January 19th, 2014 at 05:22 am

While the hub was home, he went to the dentist with a lost filling and ended up needing a root canal and crown. Then, this past week, DD3 started having tooth pain and ended up getting all 4 wisdom teeth pulled. Dentist expenses YTD so far $3800.

Then, long story, but DS and DIL had a major bump in the road and we helped them out with a loan to catch up.

Aside from the dental expenses, I am staying within our budget. At the beginning of next month, we get our annual bonus. This will go straight to the emergency fund.

Z turned 3 this week. It is comforting to see that he is adjusting well in his new home. His bio-dad is still doing all he can to bring him home, but that is totally up to the courts now. I miss him terribly, but am so grateful he is adjusting and happy.

Next week I will be relocating for work. We are moving about two miles from our current offices to an older building and I will move into a cubicle- which is fine- Ive never worked in a cubicle, so I am looking at this as a new experience. We will be there for about a year. I get paid well and will work where-ever they want me to. I am going to look for organizing options for the smaller space. And will focus on downsizing my paper files all week next week as I pack to move.

All in all, life is good. I am enjoying this three day weekend.

    Oh pooh - but at least, because of your careful budgeting, a lot of pain (physical and financial) was taken care of within your family. May this be the only bump for year!!

    Darn on those dental expenses. You must be getting some updates on Z to know that he is adjusting to his new home. That has to be a comfort.
