This is a good month. Not only are we under budget, but we're also down one more trash bag this month. Hopefully we can keep that up!
One big change, though...I was given a new responsibility at church - I'm now working with the youth, which means that I have to be at church on Wednesday nights as well as Sundays and will also be driving a lot for youth conferences, dances, camping trips, etc. Our church is 10 miles from our house, and our going there is non-negotiable (in case anyone was going to suggest switching churches), so I'm going to look for opportunities to carpool and other ways to keep my mileage down - like switching to a closer doctor and stores.
In case anyone is wondering how we did with the May extreme challenge - we did it!!! I turned on the A/C maybe four times: twice when it was just too hot to sleep and twice when we had company over. The heat is still off today, and we might be able to go longer - if I can convince my husband to quit closing the windows at night. (He says that the outdoor noise bothers him.)

Next Month I'll Be...
