My share of my medical bills ended up being right at $1,400. The vet bill as I mentioned previously was $761.27. I spent $608.62 for my new phone and first month of Verizon's service (prepaid). The deposit for the cruise was $400, of which my mom will reimburse me $200. Also, the registration on my 5th wheel was due and thankfully had come down a bit from last year, $407. (I had saved $481 for it). Then a few miscellaneous things: a new car battery and brake pads, and supplies for a craft project. I put most of these on my credit card of course, but want to pay in full before April ends. The bill is actually due on May 6th.
I have sinking funds for all of these things, but not enough to cover the medical (human and canine) or the phone in full. I had reduced sinking funds to just minimal for the glorious cause of paying off the 5th wheel loan, and was really not wanting to reduce them further. But, it makes no sense to leave money sitting in them when I have expenses I cannot cover from current cash flow. So, I have tapped them yet again but will end April with a credit card balance of $0.00, which is just the way I like it.
Beginning with my first paycheck in May, barring further expenses, I should be able to start rebuilding my savings. The only extra expense on the horizon is the balance of the cruise, which is due in full February 6th.
