It has been quiet awhile since I’ve posted. Over a month in fact. I had to take a break. I was getting overwhelmed with life and work and really just burnt out on everything. So I took my vacation down to disney, and it was awesome. The boys had an amazing time and I really hated coming back. That saying “need a vacation from my vacation” is so true.
Chaning the budget
I’ve saved up a few bucks and now have enough money in the account to pay for my monthly expenses. So I’ve decided to change how i’m paying my bills. For December I am paying everything on the first of the month and then as I get paid i will refill the general fund. Any income more than what I budgetted and spent will go to savings.
Starting in January I will add a few more catagories in my budget and save for them (i.e. birthday fund and christmas fund) That way i’m not budgetting them in the last minute.
The wife is going to school still and has maintained all A’s. She was going to apply for a grant type program through the state that would pay her tuition but her GPA is a hair shy so she didn’t qualify. This bummed her out. The good news is if she keeps at least a C average this semester she will qualify to apply. That would be a great blessing for us.
I made two major purchases that last few weeks. I bought a Glock 35 for myself and a Ruger sr9c for the wife. This is something I’ve wanted to do for quiet some time. It has nothing to do with politics. Some nuts out there think the president is going to circumvent the second amendment and I just have to say they are nuts. He might want to ban high capacity rifles, but he will not ban guns. That is all I’m going to say on that subject.
So I bought these just because I wanted something for home protection. I love the feel of the Glock and my wife loves the feel of the Ruger. They are both great weapons.
(Please don’t leave comments about how guns are bad. You will be wasting the time and effort, because statistically violent crime is higher per capita in areas where guns are harder to get legally.)
