  1. In the Savings catagory, what do you mean by “family leave” is that like vacation $ or $ you are saving to take time off when you are on FMLA (for the adoption?) I was just being nosey. LOL

    • Hi Shannon!

      No worries about prying – it is a great question!

      The “family leave” account is actually for both and a tiny bit more. We’re using it for vacation and for wage replacement for the adoption process. We’re also using it for any family emergencies/events – ailing grandparents, flying nieces and nephews out, etc. It is basically money set aside to nurture family bonds.

  2. Looks like you’re making great progress! It’s always encouraging to see, as I’m on the same journey you are on. Keep up the great work! I’m glad I found your blog.
