Foggy, rainy, dreary here.
I like save da money like this guy.

As far as finances, it's good that we don't owe on the house or cars. It makes a big difference in surviving what happened. His company didn't keep the job open for his return, as the docs aren't sure at all about any dates. So no paychecks to count on. I've cut back on totally extraneous spending, just down to the basics. And we're getting along just fine. I have to admit it was more fun when I could just splurge on something (my splurges were never extravagent).

Usually by this time of year, I have my vacation weeks picked and 2 or 3 round trip tickets bought...that might not happen this year.
But with my mom having three trips to the ER in six months, I need to stick close by. Last Friday had me scared, it's really bad when a doctor's office has to call 911....she's doing better now. I was not ready to lose her.
