With three months of NO paychecks rapidly approaching I've devised a super tight budget as always only there isn't any extra for credit card payments. This month we've had numerous expenses that I didn't foresee and didn't budget (not to mention the husband's spending category has been ridiculously over budget).
$40.86 Oil change husbands vehicle
$45 Birthing class
$35.61 Hospital bill / blood work
$32.44 Oil change my vehicle
$60 Extra water payment
$62.50 Blood work for the dog
$295 GONE just like that in one month = sweating just a bit.
I'm not panicking yet. I'm certain that we will be getting some sort of tax refund. I haven't budgeted that at all. But I am looking ahead to a year of financial struggle and headache. This is going to be one spectacularly FABULOUS and horridly difficult year. Ah, but we will survive and I'm certain we'll come out the other end of it much better off and stronger people.

Oh, I feel I should mention that our little Bozzy's gum disease has progressed. He needs his teeth veterinary cleaned again and they said they'll probably have to remove another 3 teeth (at least). We're looking at another $500 bill on that one. We're going to have to put it off for a bit but it's SOOOO awful when your babies are sick. I just can't stand it : (
