    My wife took Christmas Eve Eve off so we could have a game day together. I found the game I really wanted to try with her in the attic after days of searching, only to discover, on said Game Day, that I was missing pieces and we couldn't play.

    I feel kind of bad for feeling this way but I really am dreading the holidays. I'd really like to go sit on a deserted island and have a drink alone than pretend everything is ok and try to ignore the white elephant in the room. However for my kids, husband, my brothers widow and his daughter...

    I'm curious... what kind of budgets do you all use, if you use a "budget" at all?
