Holy crap it's taken me days to log into this site! I just wanted to say Happy Easter everyone! I hope everyone had a great weekend!
I've been incredibly sick lately with strep and a chest infection. I had to take time off work and am still not 100%. Sadly, I have still been on my mad spending streak as I have been so icky feeling that I haven't eaten at home in about a month (a bit of an exageration but you get the point). In the meantime, the weather stripping ripped off my storm door and my windshield cracked . . . again! Egads. So now I'm looking at about $1K in total for car maintenance, new door (it can't be fixed) and new windshield.
But, in order to try and keep it together, I have committed to not eating out in April (with the exception of my Dad's Birthday dinner which is coming out of the sinking funds). I went out and spent $70 on groceries yesterday and got some extra ground venison from BF. I made a pot of chili, slow cooker chicken fajitas, bean salad (though I may have put in too much onion on this one!) shepherds pie, chicken pot pie, tortierre and soup. I am almost done cooking it all and it will be put in the freezer. I think I have almost a month worth of meals right there!
So the plan is to build the home/car efund and as I have money saved, repair/ replace these things. I have taped the door until I can replace it and I have driven around with a cracked windshield before and can do it again.
Once I have a bit more time I will try and update the debt count. It's nothing exceptional as I have really fallen off the wagon but I guess I can be thankful that I am still going in the right direction, albeit much more slowly than I should have . . .
