My July expenses were lower than last month’s by about $100. Most categories were below budget except for Gasoline/Car and Medical/Health categories. I went back to work at the end June and I drove an additional 10 miles dropping off / picking up baby butterfly. Since I was on unpaid leave for 6 weeks, I had to pay my own long term care monthly fees.

After my four months of maternity leave, I took six weeks of unpaid leave after baby butterfly was born. During this time, my company continued to pay for my standard health benefits such as medical, dental and vision insurance. Long term care insurance was considered a premium benefit, so I had to pay over $100 out of pocket while on leave. My parents live about five miles away from me, and I send baby butterfly to my parents everyday for consistency; therefore, my gasoline will go up a little bit every month. This month I also had to pay for the car registration.
