I'm beginning to wonder if our trip to FL planned in january is such a great idea. After so long a time with little to no extra cash, we've been making a good living since April when Dave landed his awesome new job. And as a result, all those little things we put off for years is coming up...like tires for my truck, some major work on his truck and car that will need to be done by winter and spring (respectively), getting the furnace checked out etc etc etc. *Sigh* All those maintenance items that we put off and put off and put off, and now we have the money to get some of it done. Which means we're not putting spending money in the bank for Florida in January.
It's damn frustrating, seriously, for both of us. But the awesome part is, if we can stick it out for a few more months all of those weird, irregular costs will be done and we'll be on our way to a better financial position overall. And that's pretty cool.
