December turned out pretty well.  We only overspent by $150, leaving $450 for January.  It’s looking like January has a surplus of about $1,000, which we’re hoping to keep since spouse’s paychecks will be somewhat lower while he’s on leave.  We also have to make sure we have enough to tune up the cars and move.

But the past week has been great for spending.  We haven’t really left the house, and have been eating what my mom made.  It’s been awesome.  Hopefully we’ll be able to continue that.

Baby’s super cute too.
