Tomorrow, dh is finally going to the bank. Him dragging on it means we're delayed about 9 days. Not a big deal, but it means my savings account may be a little smaller than hoped as we have payments coming due, paying the old mortgage, and other things. I haven't made them yet in hopes that it's all settled first. Now the money is sitting in the bank ready to be transferred to either pay the bill, or to savings. So we are waiting on that. We should get the disbursement prior to the end of the month so instead of payments we'll do payoffs.

Then we are building that savings account as quickly as possible. Once that is set up, then we hit the mortgage as hard as we can. And with any luck, we have no layoffs. Dh is down to a 4 day week though, that hurts the budget some, but not nearly as bad as a layoff.

On Saturday, I'm picking up the puppy. I'm very excited for that. She'll be home by noon! I'll have driven 5 hours by then time, but it'll be so worth it.

Dh is a little crabby about that, he'd hoped to go himself tomorrow, so that the kids aren't sitting at home waiting, driving him But he won't be home until 8-8:30, then they'll eat, he'll shower, he'll start the weekend clean up with the kids and I should be home. I'll have the littlest with me, so he'll only need to contend with dd9, who'd totally wired about it, she's actually cried because we couldn't get the puppy immediately. She'll have to get over it.

But Gizmo is coming home!! I'm pretty hyped about it.
