Hey y'all-

I know that my sharp wit and timely commentary wasn't entirely missed but I went on vacation, blew May budget, avoided debt, organized my self at work so now I am actually motivated to some degree, and found out that I am expecting in January. That has entailed a new degree of happiness, stress, Dr appointments (entirely covered by health insurance at said job), and monetary chaos. Argh, 18 years of a new line item in the budget! (snicker, snicker!) Yes, this is an unplanned, un-saved for, un-scheduled occurence and we are entirely happy. Did I mention we have decided to do some "family planning" (i.e more rugrats and when?) and probably buy a home this fall (FHA loan anyone)?

Whew, glad the CC is paid off! I am a little nervous about the fact that my finances are in shambles due to two months of completely ignoring them but there is a new immediacy to the situation (i.e. January 9th is staring me down in the face!). so, I wil get back on the bandwagon-just help me up please (I am ballooning by the day)cowboys and gals!
