Even though I am trying hard to cut the budget and save wants are creeping in. As long as we stagger them it will be ok, and we aren't in any danger of not meeting our obligations.

The latest want: softball.

The partner and I paid $60 yesterday to join the a softball team in the city's league. I am choosing to look at this as an investment-an investment in our health because we will be playing and practicing weekly and an investment in our relationship because it is something else we can do together. Right now I am able to use his son's mitt, but I will probably have to buy my own soon. Other than that I shouldn't have to buy anything else except maybe some new socks and pants to play in.

The next want I'll probably wait until May for. I want to get hiking boots. The partner wants me to come hiking with him in the many local places we have, and we're definitely going to do some hiking when we go out west. So I have time to make room in our finances for a pair. I also think the boots will be a two fold investment.

As it stands I'm about $500 short for the May 10th payment, and only have $200 on my credit card. Only 8 days left to try to keep it under $1000 (I am confident I will do it!)

    $60 for a season's softball sounds like a great investment in your health.

    You know, we scrimp a lot but one thing we don't scrimp on is exercise and our social life/friends. This sounds like a great combination of the two. Who knows, you might meet some cool new people!
