I Don't Like to Play By These Rules

When you decide as a couple to seriously fight the backwards slide into debt, American consumerism, and frustration, you will be hit numerous times over the head with a big, ugly stick

Not a fan of these rules.

Not going to lie.

As I've mentioned before, we're in the midst of Dave Ramsey's Financial Peace University and we're LOVING it.

Although we've known many of these principles, having everything so conveniently packaged into a neat, hardcover book and website is just so handy - really it couldn't be easier to figure these things out! Thanks, Dave, for taking away our excuses.

But, now this dumb rule has been smashing us over the head:

We filled up our $1000 quick emergency fund

My computer broke and since it's a business tool we had to repair and replace parts

We started working on filling up our $1000 quick emergency fund again

Tonight, while delivering phonebooks (Mike picked up two routes this week - yay extra cash, boo hiss no extra time together - hence we all went - even Starbuck - driving around countryside we didn't even know existed - delivering phone books - hanging out - enjoying the weather - earning cash) my car's ABS light came on. According to the manual the remedy is to turn off the car and then restart. Well, on the restart it took FOREVER to turn over - as in I was really getting nervous! It's been getting slower and slower the last few weeks and tonight definitely put some fear into my little heart. UGH. Seriously?!

The End...
