Looking Forward to Payday

April 25th, 2010 at 08:39 pm

It's been a spendy month.

There is something about wanting your about to be deployed husband to get whatever he wants, even if it isn't in the budget! I've been out to lunch three times in the last two weeks and bought too much wine, beer and coffee. Oh, and the family went out to dinner and ice cream, too.

I only regret it from a financial standpoint. We did enjoy ourselves. It also isn't going to hurt us in the long run. Too much! Smile

I'm really looking forward to payday on Friday to get back on track. I hope to keep the spending to a minimum this week so it doesn't get worse! Unfortunately, the Army has already made a paycheck error in their favor by at least $70, maybe more. Someone is looking into it, so I hope to have that money back by mid May.

Are you having a good month financially?

    Good luck getting back on track.
    Actually, I owed on my federal, state, and local taxes so I am not having a good month financially. Frown

    No, my husband charged way too much. I paid it all off, but it has messed up my budget.

    I've already blogged about how I spent too much on myself.

    I also bought a plane ticket for a conference I will go to in July. I WILL be reimbursed -- but not till after the conference. So it's going to be a lean month.

    I already blogged about quitting as CFO... so that tells you how our month has gone, but at least our rental is rented again, the new windows are paid for, the taxes are paid, etc.

    Hey we would do the same in your shoes. I wanted to buy my SIL a car when he got back from his deployment! I held off....he bought his own with his re-enlistment bonus....
