So Brando and I had a loooong conversation today. We've really been off track as far as being on track where money is concerned. He uploaded all our stuff into Quicken and got the automatic updates from the credit cards and home loan and auto loan and such set up and then showed me the how he broke things down. Sheesh we need to be making a lot of money to survive.
It doesn't help the massive credit card debt we've ensued being virtually unemployed the last year. That's three quarters of our apartment right there. It's been a necessary evil because we still need to live. We just need to live a little barer than we're used to for a bit before we can refinance the house to bring down the payments for the debt and start bringing in those checks a little more. Even then it'd help to live on the bare minimum so we can take some VACATIONS sometime : ) . Yeah, we deserve one of those.
On the cute side, Shawners wonders out of his room tonight with his eyes still all sleepy like and passes us on his way to our room. Brando asked him what he was doing and he says, "I-I just need Mommy." and he came over and curled up into my lap.
