Not good, but not too shabby

  1. We did it! --- oh, and I finally got a bed...

    (now that the first 'seen' paycheck has cleared and available)

    WE DID IT!

    Okay, perhaps that looks a bit overboard, but let me back-up and explain some. We made it through the first 'invisible paycheck' which means we made it through September using one paycheck and the other one was put away for the 2010/2012 plan.

    Shhhh... We even had some money left over... and I bought a bed! I can't wait to see the look on my beloveds face when he

  2. On Target With My Stockpile...

    by , 10-03-2008 at 11:17 PM (The Long Road, But Worth Every Step)
    I apologize in advance... today's post lacks the energy I usually try to display in my writing.

    The other day, I made a post to the forum about finally having my BEF (baby emergency fund) complete.

    Before I begin, I wanted to thank those who took the time to stop by my blog(s) and wanted to let you know I appreciate the feedback.
