Reached Our Baby Step 3 Goal

With Dave's unemployment finally coming in, we were able to reach our initial Baby Step 3 emergency fund goal last week! And as usual with us, Murphy showed up to help us celebrate. More car trouble. But this time, it was an inexpensive fix - a new battery for the van. Since we are still in the midst of our "storm cloud", we are going to continue adding to the emergency fund for now. Then we'll move onto increasing retirement and college savings and paying extra on our mortgage (which Dave is really excited about!). So that's where we currently are on our journey of financial peace and freedom - sorta, kinda, not really finished with Baby Step 3 :)

Great news! It's amazing how long it takes for some for unemployment benefits to kick in.
