Our holiday $ went for other stuff I was frustrated when I needed it h. Said it was gone. No gifts for each other sad face. Big sigh ...

This yr. When people ask how was your holiday I lie and say it was good, but taxes and prop. Ins. got paid. We got a jeep in the fall. H got a battery for the truck unexpected $175 sigh.
