What Would Suze Do?


Unfortunately, this week has gotten off to an inauspicious start. D and I have known for awhile now that his car needs some repair work, but given that these repairs were not critical and fairly expensive, we had been putting it off... However, this weekend, lights started appearing on the dashboard that we had never seen before and we knew we couldn’t put it off anymore.

Just this morning, as D was driving to the repair shop, he hit a pothole and popped his tire, thus doubling our repair bill…

Oh me, this doesn’t come at a good time, because March and April promise to be very expensive months with travel, friends and family birthdays, graduations, medical bills, and other costs…what’s a girl to do???

Then, it hit me!! “Quit worrying…cut back a little…and wait for our tax return!!” How could I have forgotten about that?! Now, let’s just hope that the income tax return fairy is good to us this year…

I hope your week gets better. I'm going to add Tori's books to my list. Thanks for the tip? There was one on your blog some time ago that you recommended...seemed like the girl had on a toboggan blowing snow or something? Can you tell me what it was?
