Darn those expenses!

Can I just say how thankful I am that I have a great job and how even more thankful I am for my friend who helps me get contractual side work?  Daycare and medical expenses are eating my lunch, literally.  I understand how people can get into major debt if you don't stick to your  budget.  I'm going to have to make some major sacrifices including Gracie's Mommy & Me dance class so that we are not continuing to delve into our savings.  Needless to say, I am counting down until Gracie is not in daycare anymore (or less expensive Ready!  Set!  Start!).  I am also praying that my car can last for another 2 years (it has had a couple of minor issues this past couple of weeks) and that my parents' fridge that they gave me keeps on trucking for at least a year more.  There was a time when I was considering putting Gracie in Catholic school, but financially, I'm leaning more towards public elementary school and then maybe private middle school.  Who knows what will happen then.  I think I'm gonna buy a lottery ticket tomorrow.
