Wow! An expensive month. Truth be told, we are a little embarrassed by it. It feels like we have fallen into that trap of the less time we have, the more we spend.
"I love teaching and changing people's lives, it just doesn't pay enough, which means I work more and don't spend time with the kids, and don't have time to workout...
