Lisa, what a lovely firepit! I am so happy for you.

I keep forgetting not everyone has a zillion rocks everywhere. The southwest is made of rocks. We don't buy them out here - we just try not to trip over them all. :-)

Nancy, I am so proud of you for returning here so diligently to record your expenses! It is so useful to track and observe our spending habits. Good job.

Today I paid my mortgage but I don't consider it something I 'spent''s not like i had a choice about that one.

Other than that I spent nothing. I thought about taking myself out to eat because I accomplished a few good things today, but then decided I could just make myself something and save the money for my goals.

It really helps having a big goal like Europe to save for.
