grown up decisions

Being a grown up can be fun. Making money, spending money. But deciding not to spend money is a very grown up decision.

Mark and I had plans to redo our patio this summer. The concrete has been in poor condition since we bought the house and the backyard isn’t quite as welcoming as we’d like.

But, last month’s expenses (new heater and a/c for the house, new tires, an out-of-town wedding, an iPhone, flood insurance premium, and medical bills) put the kibosh on our plans. At least temporarily. I’m hopeful we’ll have more of a cushion in the early fall and can do our work then.

And now, since it’s Finance Friday, I better go update our recent spending in my spreadsheet…:)
