When Life Throws a Financial Curveball

curveballSo. Without going into a whole lot of details, I’ll do my best to fill everyone in on where things stand with us. It’s been a while since I’ve posted, I know. The truth is that I’ve been feeling rather frustrated with our financial life at the moment, and quite frankly, I haven’t really wanted to talk/write about it all that much.

In a nutshell, I will say that Todd and I have had a financial curveball thrown at us recently. Not a devastating one, but one that has caused us to completely re-evaluate and re-vamp our financial plan. The good news is that it’s only temporary; the bad news is that we don’t know how long we will be operating under these news rules and restrictions.

What this means is that for the time being, we’re basically in financial emergency mode. Our goals of debt repayment are temporarily on hold, with the goal of simply not adding further to the debt. This also means that we’re likely going to have to get creative in terms of finding ways to cut expenses and save even more money. Which, come to think of it, aren’t bad skills to have to hone.

We’ve faced financial curveballs in the past, and we’ll face this one, too. It’s a part of life that most of us have to deal with at one time or another.

I’d love to hear your stories of any financial curveballs life has thrown at you, and what you did to deal with them.

Until next time (and I promise it won’t be so long before I write again),
