The locksmith just left.  Final charge was $131 for adjusting the front lock, replacing a cylinder in back and a new key.  Most of the cost was actually for the service call, but whaddaya do -- you can't exactly take a lock in to the store.

This pushed variables up to 113%, which is unfortunate, but it had to be done.  I could have waited a few days, but didn't want to do anything too close to my vacation departure date.  The average of my variables this year has been 97%, so I'm good.  Just have to be sure I don't spend anything for the next two days!

Forgot to say -- I also ordered a box of pads for the Breeze litter box -- that was $50, which helped to push variables up to 113%.

    Me too! I've spent a lot this month. More than we budgeted or anticipated. Some in prep for summer. Some just because homes are expensive.

    There are months like that when the unexpected stuff takes over. But better to have it done and cut back.
