Focus on Positives - I was able to replace what I borrowed from our emergency fund, and the EF is back to where it should be, I was able to pay the plumber and make up the deficit within my budget by scrimping a bit on food/gas/entertainment, and I put $300 in savings for bath remodel by selling stuff.
And on a personal note, some of my family lives in AZ and their house was spared from the fires. Homes less than a mile away weren't. They got to go back home after a week of evacuations. So, so sad to see many of my favorite old stomping grounds damaged (by all 3 AZ/NM fires), but very thankful my family and friends are safe.
Work hours were down for J in June, and unfortunately that trend looks to continue in July. And our medical bills crept up again this month and will next month too. I'm getting that sinking feeling we'll never catch up again on those pesky things... July would also be when some annual/semiannual vehicle expenses are due. So the challenge will be to really, really keep to budget this month, no cheatsies.
And J volunteered to try to sell the Harley this month.
I am so listing it today along with some other furniture and stuff. Wish me luck!
