Most of the health issues that my wife and I have been dealing with over the past 15 months are now in the rear view mirror. Amnesia, Cancer, Balance issues, poof. WTF... Life is a strange ride.
And now, for the first time in 9 years, my wife is working. She's working from home doing transcriptions. It won't pay for the mortgage, but will help take the edge off our tight budget situation.
We just got our tax refund - about $4,500, and then at almost the same time came to discover some issues with our chimney. Our first estimate for repairs - $3,500. *sigh* I was thinking this money would help pay for vacation, but just like that it appears to be spoken for.
Regardless of the chimney issues, we're still planning to go on a few trips, we'll just need to dip into our investments instead. |
