So, it appears that DH and I will not be going to work much for the rest of the week, thanks to certain political stuff going on in Washington, DC. That'll jolt one into some realistic evaluations of an emergency fund. Turns out we have much more than I ever count as "emergency funds" because on a day like this, the envelope for a new car, the envelope for legal expenses, and all the other envelopes with money set aside for a planned purchase are ALL part of the emergency fund.

ThyPeace, and the cash part of the investment account, not that there's much there at the moment having just paid for the addition on the house. Sigh.
