we did pretty well, overall. I think we mostly just went over budget on food because I was making the Christmas breakfast. But, it was relaly nice. and we are headed to California Friday to visit with dh's family and we were going to buy some frames to make pictures of dd for everyone and a CD for his brother and decided that instead we will send the money to the relief fund in Asia and tell everyone we made a donation in their names. Seems silly to buy gifts now. After the holidays, we will be back on track with our cash. Also are getting the house reapprasied and are crossign our fingers that it appraises enough so we can pull some cash out ot pay off the cc we put the remainder of the renovation on. we shall sell... at the very least, hopefully they will roll the closing costs into the loan. we have homeowner's insurnace coming up- dont' need another $1200 expense on top of that!!
