Mini Update

I haven't really had much to update lately, so I've been quiet. The van window was replaced last Monday, it ended up costing about $250. Not as bad as I expected, and it killed me to tap into the emergency fund for it. Man I wanted to charge it on the credit card and "pay it off" next month!

Matt and I had a talk the other night as I was paying bills for month end, and I came to the realization that I have a hard time committing my money to where it should be. Case in point, Matt had charged a few things for Cub Scouts on our credit card and they wrote us a check for the stuff. My first instinct was to put the check in the bank, pay the $10 minimum to the card and then use the rest of the money for household expenses. It's that behavior that slowly killed us over the past few years and I MUST STOP.

So I bit the bullet and paid it all. Of course that leaves us dangling as to what we are going to do for the rest of the month, but it will all come together eventually.
