Well, they aren't just "popping" up, but my savings plan is really getting derailed lately. This month, we had to have my husbands car serviced and that cost $300. They said that we MUST replace the timing belt ASAP, so at the end of the month that'll be $700. Then my husband went in to a periodontist (at the strong urging of his dentist) and that will end up costing us $600 for the surgery. I finally made it in to the orthodontist today and that will end up costing me $800!! I don't think that we'll be able to get back on track until something like July or August. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/irked.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="irked">:<br>
Anyone else have this happen to them?<br><br>

I can relate. Dh sent a note this morning and said that the student club money for the club in which he is the faculty leader just got taken by the principal. Competition is next Saturday and that money is supposed to pay for travel to the competition and food for the day. It now has to come out of our pockets. It's about a $250 day at least. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/irked.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="irked">:

Ugh, that always happens to me. The other day I was happy after my kids' doctor visit that there was no copayment and I was "woohoo-ing" about getting to save that $40 I thought I'd spend, when I come out to see my car had a ticket ($65) for an expired inspection sticker <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/rant.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="rant">:<br><br>
Something is always coming up. Usually it's with my dd's dance team: another fundraiser, another piece of costume, worn out shoes, lost leotards, etc.<br><br>
I feel you.
