And it didn't hurt as bad as I thought it would.
Good for you, Kay!
It's never fun to do the nitty gritty of getting back on track. Now you have that part behind you. Imho, facing the numbers is the worst part and you've cleared that hurdle.
Good luck w/keeping track. Sounds like the envelope system is the way to go. I know you've had success w/that in the past.
Sorry to hear about your dh's layoff. That part sucks. Keeping my fingers crossed that it's short and that lots of side jobs come his way!
