It’s officially the last day of September. Can you believe there are only 3 months left in 2014? Yikes! So, how did things go for September?
I knew it was going to be an expensive month, especially with a week-long vacation with my Mom and sisters in Walt Disney World. I came in right where I thought I would on spending, although I may have some money coming to me from one of my sisters. She lost her debit card at the end of the trip, so I ended up paying for a few things she said she would cover. If I’ve learned anything about my sisters though, it’s not to count on them when they say “I’ll pay you back”. I’m better off just assuming that money is gone.
I’m a little nervous about how the rest of the year will pan out. The boyfriend is still in the process of looking for a new job, and as of October 1st, we get to start paying rent on the apartment. We’re still sorting through how we’ll handle things financially. I’ve volunteered to cover the rent and utilities at the apartment, at least while we’re in the process of making some changes (like selling a house, or two). He’s not very comfortable with that idea. But unless some very big changes happen very soon, he may not have a choice.
Change is always scary. I don’t know what the rest of 2014 will hold for us. But I’m optimistic that as long as we work together, everything will turn out fine!
