When I lost my mother almost 2 years ago. Everyone kept telling me, “Time heals all wounds.” That may be true, however, there is NOTHING that will heal the wound of losing a parent. I recently had hysterectomy surgery. It’s something that my husband and I talked about quite often since we lost my mom. She was supposed to get one at my age, but she was “too busy raising kids” and she didn’t want to have to take time off work in order to heal. There was one problem with her thinking.
A few of the first things I do, whenever we’re in a crunch for money, is look at how much we’re spending on food, crazy items that we don’t need or use, and how much we’re spending at the grocery store. It’s usually around birthdays, holidays, or a party when I really start to freak because those times are usually when we’re spending the most. That’s when we (myself actually) starts working on budgeting our grocery bill.
Well, we started the home hunting process and we’re in the home stretch on closing on our first home (and hopefully forever), which should be done by the end of this month. The process has been a pain in the butt, however, it’s been more so because the range that we were approved for and what we initially wanted, just weren’t lining up as a possibility.
