Caught up?

All of our bills are paid through December. How in the hell did this happen?

We have been steadily behind for about a year. I sometimes don't know where our money goes, but it goes. And quickly. That's why I almost shit my pants (sorry for the visual) when I wrote out all the checks, licked all the stamps, sealed all the envelopes and wrote our remaining balance in the register. A balance in the black. We actually have money left over. It's crazy.

I suck with money and unfortunately, I married a sucky-money person too. Together we can blow all sorts of cash on all sorts of nothing. That's why having kids really makes the anxiety disorder in me rage. I can't tell you how many nights I've lost sleep worrying about how dear husband was going to get to work with gas being so freakin' expensive ($2.48/gallon is rape I tell ya). So, now I have nothing like that to keep me awake at night. What am I going to worry about now?

I'll think of something dear readers. Have no fear. I'm a professional worry-wart. But, perhaps you can give me some suggestions...

*again I have typed a spelling-error free post. Someone give me a cookie!

When I was pregnant with my first son, my husband had just quit doing his PH.d and got a "real" job. I will remember this moment FOREVER! I was HUGE and ready to deliver, and I was paying our bills because my husband got his first "real" paycheck. I paid all our bills and had money left over, I about almost died and then announced we were going out to dinner. Yeah, so the kids came and our money left! :)

Ok, well I tried to log in to blogger but it won't let me....whatever!!
How the heck can you pay your bills 2 months in advance??? That's a miracle in my book. Please send me your secret.
congratulations on your great financial success. I am quite jealous!!

I would also love to know your secret! That must be an awesome feeling! And what better time for that to happen, but when we are quickly approaching Christmas time!
