All Wrapped Up — Jan. 5

Our Freaking Budget Weekly Wrap-Up

I’ll clear up the answer to everyone’s first question real fast:

So that should clear that right up. Otherwise, it’s business as usual. I’m back to work. Joanna’s back to growing a human. And Persie is still trying to find the highest ledge in our house to jump onto. For now, it’s the five-foot mantle above the fireplace. And that’s that.

    Johnny, only you would create a website to tell people that your baby is still not here. Classic! I love it. I know the waiting game is difficult, but it will happen. Did your wife’s OB give her a date for induction? Good luck to you and Joanna!
