Mini update. I've gotten a few little checks in the mail (all reimbursement) and instead of putting them in checking to get frittered away, I've stashed them into our vacation savings fund. I went ahead and transfered some money from the second pay period check into our home maintenance account.
So, I'm happy to see those accounts go up this month, when I thought it would be a really tight month. The nasty weather and being sick has kept me indoors and out of the stores. Which is great for the budget. I haven't put gas in the van since 12/12/12. Groceries have been coming in under budget, yet we've been eating well.
I've been sewing away on my latest project, and it's keeping me occupied and happy. I want to do a lot of little things around the house, but at the same time, I need to quilt some projects to sell in the local crafts gallery. My inventory there is pitiful, and it's a great opportunity to show my craft, sell stuff and network in the art/craft community. With all the rain/sleet lately, house projects aren't really top priority any way.
My baby started walking this week. His birthday is next week, he'll be ONE!!! Where has this year gone? And why did my husband hint that perhaps he'd like another?!?! (I caught him looking through my galleries on facebook - of all my pregnancy pictures and the newborn baby pictures.... I think I saw a tear in his eye.... hmmmm.....).
Anyway, off to pay some bills then SEW like the wind.
