In my last post we celebrated a meager success in savings. In this post I get to describe our meager loss of savings (you're welcome). We had a surprise trip to the vet for the discounted price of $99 and a tire replacement of $140. We are in between spring and summer classes which means the additional teaching income wont be back until the end of june. We have $100 to last us until the 30th. The lesson we are learning is tough. Im not sure how to make such a small sum of money last, we are used to credit cards to pull us through but we eliminated those. Life 2. Tcats 1. we get one point for having money in savings to cover the vet. Life gave us a suckerpunch. its rude like that.

    You had the money for the emergency though. What would you have done before?

    Life is rude, and there is no control, but frugality leads to financial serenity.

    Ouch, that really stinks, and it has to lead to some frustration... but you can do this! And you are right to be glad that you had something there for the emergency situation, as well... without that insurance you would have been even worse off, and this is only temporary! Hang in there...
