Weekly Budget Report

We’re officially into overspending for the month, but it’s all because of car repairs.  The truck needed to get taken in because of some starting issues, and ended up needing a new battery, and several components around the batter rebuilt.  I mean, it’s a 20-year-old truck, so it probably shouldn’t have been a surprise.

We’re still a little ahead where I’d like to be for restaurants, but frankly at this point, I’m just rolling with it.  I’m too uncomfortable any more to do much around the house, and am just waiting to have this darn baby.

I probably won’t have a lot in my spending category, because I can’t find nursing bras in my size (38J/K lol.  It’s rough).  So I’m just going to make do with what I have for the first month or so, and then invest in real wired nursing bras around month 2 or 3.  Nordstroms will convert regular bras to nursing bras, so that’s probably what will happen once I find out what a more stable size is likely to be.
