Our life has officially become a money pit in mid-2016.
Income taxes: A couple thousand due to Uncle Sam this year (which sucks when you are counting on a minor refund to help fund a summer vacation).
Denis’s van: $800 repair
Tree removal due to dead tree leaning dangerously close to our fence after it began uprooting itself: $700
A/C repair for the upstairs unit (a repair that did NOTHING because 2 weeks later it was still not working properly and the FIVE POUNDS of coolant they put in the system was gone after 2 weeks (please note they did NOT charge us a penny for the first followup visit earlier this week)): $500
Aging pets: $300 vet bill for annual checkup, vaccinations and meds.… continue on, dear reader!
