I am so tired. Going back to work has had our whole family flipped upside down. I really felt the pain when I had both kiddos in meltdown mode when I left for work. Talk about pulling on my heart strings! I know time will easy the transition and hopefully some sort of normalcy will set in.

On the $$ side of things it is awesome to be contributing to the family pocketbook. We have chosen to keep my income in separate from the rest and just use it to pay childcare and loans. I’m super pumped to get my first check on Friday!

We also had a garage sale this past weekend and unloaded a ton of random stuff we just don’t use. Still lots to unload but we are seeing an improvement already and making some cash along the way.

Last night we good a bottle of wine and some ice cream to finally sit down and make a serious budget. We set it up in mint.com so we can check it on our phones before making purchases. I still want to watch all the tutorials on nomoreharvarddebt.com but right now it is a good start.
