Please write an introductory message when you decide to join our thread. We would like to know: a. Who you are: Rachael. Mom to Keller (2.5 yrs) and Charlotte (6 weeks). Wife to traveling DH (read: I am practically a single mom some weeks and am by myself a lot). My hang up is that I am ALONE a lot (4-6 days a week every single week) so to compensate for that I spend, spend, spend money that should be going other places (not to the point of destruction but not as...

Hi ladies...I am back! Me: Mom of 2 - Our newest addition will be 4 weeks this week. Time for me to get back on the wagon. Financial Goals: Pay Off Debt How: Live Frugally (ie not go on the spending spree I've been on - we have lived VERY frugally before, we can do it again!) Find side jobs for me - any suggestions on this are welcome. ***** Since new baby joined us I have been super out of touch with our budget (basically ignoring it) so it is time...
Ladies - SHE'S HERE!!!!! (totally shocked we had a girl - we didn't know the sex and I was sure it was a boy!) Charlotte Ryan was born 7/22 at 11am exactly - she was 8lb 6oz and 20 3/4 inches. She was born in the water after 3 pushes that came in a span of 2 minutes (the midwife almost didn't make it!). I am in ***** (I am recording all unbudgeted spending here and loan payoffs!)

Crunchy*VT - This post is specifically dedicated to you so you don't have to wonder! I've been having contractions 10-12 minutes apart for a little over an hour.

Still no baby...hoping for soon! The pressure in my nether regions is about to push me over the edge!

Still no baby... *sigh* my DH has been on call for work for 4 days which is great, I need to go into labor while he is here so if this baby can just hurry up that would be great!?! Spending is going pretty well considering we are all home. We have been doing a lot of playing outside in the beautiful weather and lots and lots of walking around the neighborhood. ***** (I am recording all unbudgeted spending here and loan payoffs!)

The week is starting off well! I continue to pay off small items from my unemployment pay, already 2 things paid off this month! Hoping for a baby this week or next so that might throw things off a little. However, I am much better prepared this time around (less junk more neceessities!) and I have $75 in gift cards to Target just for the new addition! ***** (I am recording all unbudgeted spending here and loan payoffs!)
