Kink in the Budget

May 5th, 2016 at 05:10 pm

I found out today that I have to have surgery on June 1 to repair a Hernia. It will outpatient but I will miss about 2 weeks at my second job. Just when things were going good. I will have to redo my budget for June and probably July won't look too pretty either. I won't be able to lift anything above 5 pounds for 6 weeks. The bag I put my laptop in weighs more than that when the laptop is in it! Will have to figure something out about that.

I had to turn the heat back on today. It was 63 degrees in the house! I don't know what is going on. I saw pictures online of snow (SNOW!) at the Tenn/NC border near the smokey mountains! What is happening????

    It was colder and rainy here too! It's spring, the weather changes!

    Hopefully the surgery is for the best. Take two bags, one with laptop and one with other stuff. Two trips!

    Reminds me of after my C-section, when they told me not to lift anything over 6 lbs. -- but my baby was 6.9 lbs! Good luck with everything.

    Welcome back to SA, we've missed you and your cheerful site. Sorry you need surgery, it's a setback but recovery time is important. Did you freeze your CCs in the fridge freezer or do you think we're nuts! I've found it helpful to use a backpack for laptop and items typically carried in a handbag or tote. Keys on a lanyard keeps them from getting lost in the bottom of pack. If that's too heavy, you might borrow a small size roller bag if you haven't one at hand. if you need to buy, consider GW or one of the Thrift shops since it's for short term use.

    With income to be reduced any/all cutbacks this month helps.

    Could you get a laptop bag on wheels, so you would pull it instead of carry it?
