April 2013 is going down in history as the worst month thus far in our Total Money Makeover life. I say "thus far" because I know May 2013 will give April a run for it's money. It has been relatively easy to stay on budget from month to month. It has not always be pleasant, but it hasn't been too hard to deny ourselves in order to keep on track. This month though, has thrown us a Sallie Mae mix up, a random unjustifiable parking ticket and extra medical bills. We've done everything we can to get reimbursed and protest and rectify errors but I don't hold out much hope that the budget will balance at the end of month.
I truly hope I'm wrong.
