We were going through our finances and realized its time to tighten up the budget belts again...
I know, I know,,, its the story of my life! Bennie asked yesterday how much was in savings,,,, I've been kinda dreading that question. Not that I'm hiding anything from him, its just he doesn't always realize whats going on with things,,, he just asks for money and assumes its there and every things fine. Don't get me wrong,, we have some money,, just not as much as he thought.
Then he asks me,,, "well, what if I get layed off again?",,,, okay,, now how is that possibly my fault? Or how can I control that? Things just arnt going as planned because of getting the new car, We had planned on not having a car payment, and soon getting the truck payed off, but then WHAM,,,,,,, we are back to 2 car payments again... Plus since I thought we werent going to have car payments I went out and got the Y membership. Now I have ended up with more money going out than I had in the first place!! The truck will be payed off soon though.
I feel like a failure sometimes when it comes to money. He said I should run another ad for babysitting in the paper but,, I really do not like doing that.... Sometimes you get scary people coming to interview you and you never know what they are going to be like, or if you can trust them to pay you... I much rather have word of mouth people. Ugh..... Sometimes I wish I had a fancy degree and could go out and get a really good paying job,,, but then that would mean I would have to leave my babies with someone else and I don't like doing that. I am doing what I always want be doing,, its just not enough income sometimes.
I am going to sit down today and re figure out the budget. See what kinda shape we are in and how long it will take to build back up the savings to where we would like it to be.
