Experiencing the joys of home ownership means also experiencing some of the not so joyful moments. You have to take the bad with the good. My furnace’s boiler cracked so I am now the proud owner of a shiny new furnace and someone else is the proud owner of more than $3,200 of my money.
Combine this with $1,200 to keep my vehicle on the road and another $600 for two other things I had to have done to equipment at my house and this has been a damn expensive month.
I probably shouldn’t complain. I’ve got the financial wherewithal to absorb this. (Save your money kids.) This would be a disaster for some folks. Still, any month where I end up spending $5,000 I didn’t expect to is not a good one.
