Pregnancy and Bills

Tricked ya!!! No, I'm not pregnant but if you notice the ticker at the top of the page that shows how long we've been logged in to China...I should have given birth by now. Big sigh....hopefully it won't be another 9 months before we can bring our daughter home!

Brian and I sat down last night to work on our budget. On August 31 Brian will complete his training in anesthesia. Literally its taken us 12 years to get to this point. He will begin working for our new employer on Sept. 17th. Northstar Anesthesia. Anyone heard of them? Anyway, our income will go up but we still have massive amounts of debt to pay off so we are getting our numbers together to take to our "money guy" so we can get a debt payback plan going from the get go. The reason I'm telling you all of this is so I can show you this picture. Look closely...notice how it takes us two screens, one bottle of pills and a glass of wine to get through it!! Just kidding about the bottle of pills! I was very proud of Brian and I as there were no tears last night! Way to go, Brian! (hee-hee!)

It is a rare milestone when a couple can talk about budget and finances without tears. Way to go!

Oh, those budget nights look way too familiar! We, too, have both computers going, and I literally have to pray my way through it so that I don't get overwhelmed. Not always fun, but so worth it!

We are so happy for you and Brian to be finally at this incredible "finish line" of finishing school and residency and all of that fun stuff! We will be praying for this big transition. :)
