Family Emergency

So, while we were on our trip we had a family emergency.  I won't get into the details, but my grandma had to go to the hospital on Thursday and has to stay until at least Monday to get some tests done.

We made a few extra trips back and forth from the cabin to the hospital and ate out more than we would have otherwise - all in all a low-cost emergency.  That said, it is what the e-fund was meant for.

I've transferred $150 from our emergency fund into our joint account to cover some of the extra cost.  Once all the transactions go through from the weekend, we'll have a better idea about if that's enough (it should be close enough).

Even before this fam-emergency, Jordan and I realized we didn't actually plan very well (if at all) for our week away.  So for the next two weeks, it's going to be movies and WOW for us - no more extra spending.  Otherwise, paying off my student loan is in jeopardy.
