    Oh, and down 3 lbs this morning. Back to 191... I wish it was 183, but it's not... 8 lbs to go to get back to my Primal Low.

    At least you are heading in the right direction. Given all the stress you easily could have said, "F' it" and gone for an allout junk fiesta. So good on you for keeping it all nailed down.

    Same could be said for wheat and soy...

    DeathStorm2013 Part 2 (or is it Part 3 now?? I can't remember) has started. They're cancelling schools left and right. Brady's school dismisses at 1 pm today. The flakes are still little, but there are a LOT of them and they're sticking. The drive home tonight should be a pleasant one. Was planning to make cube steaks in gravy for dinner tonight, but wondering if I need to change that plan. Cube steaks always take a bit of time between browning them, making the cream of mushroom gravy and then baking them... Hopefully they'll give us some admin time so I can cut out early. Gotta stop at the store and get mushrooms yet...

    Class Wednesday and Thursday this week. Blah! Only 2 more weeks of my Strategic Planning class and then I'm down to working on only my thesis... which I really need to get working on. I've blown through 6 weeks and gotten one page written... *sigh*

    Hey Jenn - my suggestion to "skim" came from what I remember of your pay-off plan from some time ago. I thought there might be some "gravy" going onto the other debts that could be re-purposed for this one time need. Sorry if I sounded flip about it. I thought there was some extra going out to pay off a few things.

    As for Brads habit of bad money usage........... maybe its time for his racing needs to come out of his own allowance? It's his hobby so maybe he should have to be responsible for funding it. Maybe his allowance plus whatever overtime or odd job money could be his to spend on his race car? There has to be a line drawn someplace. But I'm sure figuring out where that line should be will not be easy or pleasant. Purhaps you could suggest a cash only deal -- if the car breaks and theres no money to fix it - then the car sits until the money is gathered. Or take a season off and let Brad figure out how to build a working car fund during that year?

    Is he even slightly willing to be more responsible about the finances? Or is he dead set on staying in the same willy-nilly spending style?

    I'm sorry you're constantly dealing with this frustration. There's few things harder to deal with in a marriage than how to handle the finances.
