HSA went down $3000 when I paid DH's medical bills for his knee...so that was a big blow. But at least we had the money in the HSA to pay for it.
On the flip side we got DH's yearly retirement statement and it went up $3760 from my last estimate...so all in all the numbers came out ok.
After all that moving around we are up $95 for the month! Smile

We met our goal for the Anniversary Cruise this month and are very close to meeting the goal for the checking cushion and the HSA.
We also bought a new lawn mower and a new vacuum.
Just a few more weeks and school will be starting and the cash flow will be increasing again (sigh of relief!).
