frissy asked: Are you going to have enough this summer to cover your slip fee?

Excellent question! I wouldn't have been able to do it, to tell you the truth. First of all, I had only saved for the first 6 or 7 months before the money flow stopped. And secondly, we spent everything I had saved to eat, pay medical, legal, accounting, and debt bills. Oh, and care repairs. Spent the last $250 last week on two new tires.

But family members came to our rescue and filled in when our resources failed. I wish I had saved more ahead (ok, I *wish* we had saved up an emergency fund in ADDITION to the slip fee fund), so that we wouldn't have needed to ask for so much help.

Now that life is beginning to even out, I plan to utilize my new financial savvy (along with the support & motivation from this board) to pay that back with haste.

And...what's a slip fee?
Heheh! Check with FredinSeoul. :-)
