Emergency Fund


Well, our personal finances certainly took a hit this month. With the baby sick, and the wife away from work for a week, we will bring home about 600 dollars less than expected. SOO…The debt reduction plan will have to be adjusted. An interesting side note, however, is that I have found that simply THINKING about saving money seems to produce more money. The more we plan, the more we conserve, the more we budget, the more extra little bits of money seem to show up. We have received gifts, refunds that we had forgotten about, even a check for overpayment for a medical bill from LAST YEAR. We must be doing something right… Any of you ever experienced this FOUND MONEY PHENOMENON?

Quick weight loss update…I have removed the annoying tickertracker thingy from above each posts. I have lost 4 of the 40 pounds I want to lose…10 percent gone. Yay for me. Where’s the cake?
