Just keep swimming

That phrase is even cuter now that I've seen Finding Dory.

I'm finding it really difficult to keep up with everything going on. We're in the middle of packing for our move this upcoming weekend. So far, costs for that are about $60 for the truck (with the total for miles coming to about $30). Plus, we'll have food cost since we'll be ordering pizza as a thank you to our helpers (my brothers plus DH's best friend and dad). We have upcoming vet costs for shots, plus our younger dog has a problem controlling her bowels when she's sleeping, so we want to check on that. We also want to get the dogs groomed before moving, so that is another $100 or so.

My rabbit died last week. I'd had him nearly a decade. We bought him in our junior year and kept him in our dorm, breaking pet rules. He was always a grumpy old thing, but I was so sad when he passed. We were going to bring him to the vet to be put down, since his behavior changed so quickly. Fortunately, I was with him and he passed away comfortably in the comfort of his home.

DH is shaping up to have a great month, so hopefully next month, we'll be able to get back on track and pay off some things. First up, is $1400 to an outstanding personal loan. That pain is leftover from my pre-savingadvice days, and I'll be glad when it's gone.

Pokemon Go

Not much on the financial front, but I found my new favorite pastime which gives me more quality time with my DH, dogs, and provides some exercise. It's always been a hassle to get DH to walk with me because he's so tired in the evenings. I don't like taking both pups on long walks by myself because the younger one is still learning her big girl manners, so it's difficult to control them both. With pokemon go, DH is suddenly much more motivated to walk even if it's just a mile around the neighborhood. We've been getting out a lot more, plus it's silly fun. Have you noticed more people out and about in your neighborhood? Are you trying to catch em all?
