Tim sent me a copy of our 2011 budget to review. It was almost the same as last years except for the increased cost on car insurance due to the inclusion of a new driver in the family - Shannon. I thought that it was pretty good. Then I realized that this new driver will also be going to college this year. That means there will be more than car insurance that we will have to help her with. I emailed Tim who was at that time working upstairs. While Shannon is not going to college until the fall, we might as well get used to the idea of having less discretionary money. He agreed. And the budget was revised. Now a portion of our budget is going somewhere as if our daughter is already in college.
In some ways this is like breaking-in a new pair of shoes (for a special event) in order to avoid those nasty blisters. We'll see how we do.
