Well as predicted, the refund is just all gone…I am simply amazed…this time it took what 5 weeks to blow through them? That can’t possibly be right, can it?  We had a ton of bills that needed paying, catching up on the car past due was the big one, making payments to Citimortgage, again important, but it just doesn’t seem realistic at all that some $3,242.00 is gone…that relief we felt with having that cash was determinable, you could feel it, it was just a huge relief off of our shoulders…but alas it’s gone.  Right now I have all of $607.66 left which I’ve just dumped back into my funds available for bills and have determined that it will be used this week to help off set our AT&T and Citi payments for the week with some left over.  Let us not discount or forget that I have $650.00 pulled aside for the down payment on our next car to be purchased in a few weeks when our restructure is done. So without further adieu, here’s this week’s budget…
