Work/ Weekend Update

Today is payday which also means time to make the monthly budget. In the month of july we seem to have less pop up expenses (no birthdays, weddings, graduations, etc). My wife made the first trip to the bank to get the "budget money". Even though she was nervous asking the teller for a high amount and carrying around that much in cash, she did just marvelous. Heres the latest work update:Its about my second week in training going over policies and just getting to know everyone in my group. I've always been good about adapting to change. I'm just glad that I am working again because I feel our paying down debt was rolling along but when I left my job it was stagnant; that made me sick to my stomach. Happily in the weekend news, I have to pick up a rental car to goto a wedding tomorrow for a college buddy of mine. Its exciting to see that my friends are all growing up... And most of them act like kids. :P
