I have been debating even writing this post for several days. November was a month that was busy, frightening and unforgettable but I also want to stay true to myself and have documented some of the reasons that things happen. First we decided to take a trip to Michigan to visit over Thanksgiving. I am a planner and two weeks is never enough time to plan a 7 day trip. But this Amanda was sick and the two weeks turned into 3 days. I spent 5 solid days at the hospital with her and ended up eating several meals just to make the days go faster. I don’t regret spending the time at the hospital and would do it again if needed but it made the month really short. I don’t even think I have actual numbers this month but best guess has to work for now.
Financial- I did fairly well for our trip expenses and I still plan to write a blog post about that. I did end up spending money on more new clothes and shoes. The good news is that we paid all our bills and we have no real needs.
Grocery budget $500- I did end up staying under this amount I am positive. However I am going to guess that I spent around $200 this month on groceries. I am going to plan a HUGE grocery trip at the end of December but the goal is to stay well under $100 prior to that.
Gas- Our trip to Michigan cost us 7 tanks of gas for around $250. I have absolutely no idea what else was spent in gas for the month except $15 on parking for the hospital.
Kid/Summer expenses: Kendall gymnastics $60 was the only required spending for the month but I am thinking I also paid $20 on a fieldtrip.
Earned $100- I have gift cards left for Christmas and we used $70 for trip expenses .
Blogging-5 for the month. I had many things to think about an little time to blog this month.
Exercise- Zero… no explanation.
