Lesson 61 - Make a BUDGET

 Make a Budget!

Now that the Husband gets paid only once a month, we join the ranks of the retired people, those on welfare, disability, and of course government workers which is what the Husband is now.  My Mom always told me never to shop on the 1st of the month.  Well...just coming off a month long spending fast - we were running out of meals and food, and I had to go to the grocery store.

I could not believe my eyes. Everyone in this town, gets paid once a month! Plus with this being San Francisco 49er territory, the stores were busier than usual.

I have to perfect - my new monthly budget.  I've never lived to where we only get paid once a month. Our military pension is once a month but it's a second income. It was always nice to have that once a week paycheck to look forward to. Maybe it will make the month go longer. I'm always gripping out fast time goes by.

So here's to a 28 day February!
