Think I Can Afford to Splurge a Little

By that I mean that I can probably afford to do the stuff that normal people take for granted. It is going to be necessary to stay on budget, but the worst part of it is over. I had to cut a lot of corners to get in this house. It is not a big house and it does not sit on much land, but it is my house. At least it will be once I pay the bank. I was looking at direct tv packages today. Right now I am not getting any channels except the ones that come over the air. It is not the greatest thing, but we are obviously trying to get the place in our name. That is how you have to roll if you want to get to where you need to be. A house is a big step for us and we had to give up a lot of little things to get it in our name.

Of course we are in a much better place at this point in time and I am thinking that I can afford to let a bit of money go as easy. It was not as though I have not really sacrificed that much for the house. I am making about a quarter as much more now than I was when I saved up the money for the down payment on the house. It saved us a lot of money actually once we got in the place and now we have some money saved up. We have to pay about two thirds as much in a house payment as we were paying for rent on a one bedroom apartment before we moved here. That is the easy part of it, but you have to save up money for a rainy day too.
