After being very frugal for a while until I paid off my mortgage, this apparently is going to be the year that all that saved money is going to fly right back out of my bank account.
It all started with me spending the extra money to make the front of my house look a little nicer. Since then I've had minor expenses to take care of. Then of course there were the doctor appointments for my eye issue and finally the great big dental expense. I do have dental insurance but it doesn't pay for much and my dentist is out of network. Needless to say I had to pay for it all up front and the insurance company will repay me a very small fraction.
The latest expense is going to be looking for a plumber. I knew that the tub faucet was dripping but I didn't think it was that bad. I had a big surprise when I opened my water bill to discover that it was $30 more than it usually is.
Today's to do list consists of making an appointment for car inspection and then finding a plumber. Oh and when I recover from both of those, Gibbs needs to get in to the vet to get caught up on shots.
