I can't believe it's the middle of September and I haven't posted yet this month--my bad.  There hasn't been much going on in the way of sewing, but I have started a new Bible Study.  I'm on week three of seven, and I love it.  The homework just draws me closer to God.  It's five hours per week of study time.  Class time is very good, too.  
This summer we completed a study about money with my hubby, and Erin at our church.  We met some wonderful people in our class, and one very sweet lady that has a blog also.  It's here.  The study was top of the line when it comes to budgets and debt.
It comes with the envelope system which I believe is the key to staying on budget.
I'm still trying to get the hang of it, but my free-spirit hubby doesn't care either way if we do it or not.  He's perfectly content with doing whatever I desire, which leaves me the job of keeping him on board.  I just need to hang in there and keep trying.  It would have been easier when we were dirt poor, but now it's so easy to slip back into old habits.  I know we could save more money by doing this, and I need to be more diligent and organized about it.
On another note, I'm taking my sister to the airport today so she can be with her kids and grand kids for a while.  Hubby is taking off earlier than usual to go with us, and do the driving
(which I love to let someone else do).  We will eat in Branson while we are there.  That will be nice.
