I know part of being an adult is having money in savings so that when you need a new water heater, you just pull the money out of savings and voila! It is paid for.
But man, I’m still not great at this “Put money in savings” business. I mean, I do it, regularly, but not with a grown-up amount of money. And so todays adventure leaves $50 in my savings account.
I hope we don’t have any disasters that cost more than $50 after this.
But, really, as far as unlucky things go, this was a very lucky thing. It was in the garage, the plumber could replace it right away, and I have the money to pay for it and the vacation time to sit here while they do it.
We have not always been so lucky. So, I’m wigged out, but I’m really grateful, too.
