This was an expensive month. We owed on our taxes, and there was our share of the cost of fixing the car that argued with a deer. We held about steady on debt, but that means we’re now behind my goal for this point in the year.

Speaking of expense, we’ve gotten more estimates on the siding job, and it’s looking like we can do it for less than originally thought, but it still may be that we’ll need to postpone to next year for financial reasons. Also, the basement doors have given out completely and need to be repaired — preferably before doing the siding.
