Woohoo!! The settlement check from the van accident came in today! Just over $1,100!! Now we can resupply our emergency fund and Daniel is taking me out tonight as an anniversary re-do since the van broke down last time. We keep a $1,000 emergency fund in the bank for life's minor emergencies like for when major parts go out on the van, unexpected medical bills, broken appliances, etc. Lately ours has been at about half full because of all the little problems we've had. Since we've had this emergency fund we haven't had any problems with going negative in our checking account monthly. I'm also excited that we can use part of this money to renew our zoo membership and to get another 100 hour pass at the local drop-in child care center. Getting the big pass really saves us alot of money on babysitting in the long run! Well, I'm off to check the movie listings for our date tonight!
