An update and 2014
We have several exciting things that have already started this year. I will most likely start a nanny position a few evenings a week for 5, yes you read that right 5 children. Their ages are 6,4,3,2 and 10 months. The hubby will be helping me with that until I get adjusted.
We are also in the process of becoming respite caregivers for foster children. Our friend has a 2 month old foster and we have been watching him and will care for him for a week in April when they go out of state.
I'll start fertility treatments again in February. The hope was to start in January, but aunt flo decided to come to town before my injectables came in the mail, so we had to delay a month. I've waited 35 years so far, what's another month?
I signed us up for Dave Ramsey's Financial Peace University at a local church. That starts in February too. Why is it so hard to save money and not live paycheck-to-paycheck?
Ever since the miscarriage in July, we have let budgets and such go out the window. We have to snap out of that fog of "we deserve it" mentality now and start being a lot more responsible with our money. I am searching other blogs everyday for money making and saving ideas to try and reign in this monster we've created.
