Just catching up...

July 2nd, 2013 at 05:55 pm

Hubby goes in for his second surgery on the 9th. Looks like he won't be returning to work until Dec or Jan. Wow, that will be one year off work.

The emergency fund has taken quite a hit. Had to take a considerable chunk out to cover annual auto insurance and some living expenses. Usually we have money put aside in an "escrow acct" for ins, taxes, etc. but haven't been able to contribute to this acct since he is not working.

Had to get DD a new mattress. I didn't realize how bad hers was. This is something that couldn't be put off. The sagging was awful. I tried turning it and still so bad. I found one online that had great reviews and bought it. I did a quick search and found a coupon code that saved $40! Not bad for about 3 mins. work!

Watching the emergency fund go down is depressing but I guess it's what it is there for...

    That is what it is there for...I hope the recovery is fast and that your expenses stay low in the meantime. Good luck!

    I hate using the emergency fund, too. Good job on the mattress. If it was sagging, you just had to do it.

    Thanks CCF and Sheila

    CB...my daughter and I was watching The Voice finale in her room and when I got up off her bed I could hardly walk. My body was so stiff. Actually got the mattress in the mail today. Daughter is anxious to sleep on it.
