Wwweeellllll...Houston, we have a (small) problem. It's a case of just a lliittttllee case of over enthusiasm. Last month was a 5 pay month for us since DaHubby gets paid on Wednesdays. In my excitement to make some serious progress, I used a large chunk of this past final monthly paycheck to shore up that emergency account.
Wwweeellllll...I forgot one (or three) small things. *Eh-hem* We still have to eat. *cough* And, we still have our weekly transfers to various accounts. *sigh*
Yes, I wrote out a beautiful budget - but it would have helped if I had remembered to list FOOD and the transfers that cover our PROPERTY TAXES and LIFE INSURANCE that come out of every check.
So, to keep me accountable and so y'all don't think there's any hanky-panky going on with my savings ticker, I'm 'fessing up now. I'll be transferring back some of the moolah back into our checking account today to cover those "necessities" I somehow managed to forget about.
Consider me chastised. *blush* My "punishment"? I'll be listening to Dave Ramsey online archives most of the day (meant to be funny), I get to call someone and tell them I can't make the drive to my best friend's 40th surprise birthday party tomorrow (not funny), and I get to feel like crud because DaHubby's b-day is Sunday (he will also be 40) and we have nothing special for him (SO not funny). *sigh*
Just feeling icky, silly, and dumb.
