Emergency Fund Daily Savings
July 8th: $35
July 9th: $40
July 10th: $45
July 11th: $50 / $800
I'm plugging away at this and am remembering to transfer over $5 per day, or putting a $5 bill in the envelope. Today brings the Emergency fund to $341 total. I think that we should have the remainder of it in the bank account by the end of the summer.
My trip to the doctor last week made me open my eyes to some things that I really need to start taking care of with my body and my health. To become a candidate for the hernia repair surgery, I must lose 40 pounds and quit smoking. Before I get hit with a million comments on the benefits of losing and quitting, I have to say, I know that there are many really, really good reasons to quit. The problem with me is that I have never wanted to. I am slowly changing my mindset on this. I'm thinking a 'total retransformation' of myself as my gift to myself for my upcoming 40th birthday next year. for the weight, 'lose 40 by 40' sounds good to me.
My dental appointment was excruciating, as I found out I have a cracked tooth. I only went for a cleaning, and had some rather extreme pain. I guess I've been avoiding the area naturally, so it hasn't been bothering me too much. I'm probably going to have the tooth pulled, and some sort of spacer or denture put in. I can just imagine how much that is going to cost.
We had a wonderful weekend in Niagara Falls with DD2. I got to do some things that I have always wanted do, like go on the Maid of the Mist, and The Journey Behind the Falls. We're already talking about saving up for another weekend there as there are so many other things that we would have liked to have done.
I'll post some pictures later today.
How's your Monday shaping up?
