[snip!] ... times a day (even at 1am to see if anything has gone out at midnight), and count whatever money in my wallet almost constantly."Yeah I'm also very anal about checking everything but this month was just a bad month for us. We over did it with Christmas presents, moved into a new townhouse so we had deposits for utilities and needed basic necessities, plus because of the holidays DH hasn't worked a full week all month. I'm not as freaked out about it as I thought I would be but I think it's because I know our bills are paid and we have everything we need for DD.

Quoting Monkey Nuts:" You'll be out of the rut soon enough. Can't your SO take over watching the finances for a while until ... [snip!] ... get your stress levels under control? It's bad for you to stress so much, especially when you are going to try to TTC. "
