Help! I Am a Dunce with Money!

Ok, we're not super bad shape or anything, but my husband has a new (very demanding) job, and so he has passed over all the financial chores -- paying bills, keeping the check book, etc. Except he pretty much did everything online and in his head (ie never balanced the check book or kept a budget record). I am not a terribly disciplined person, but I am getting very anxious about this responsibility, especially because we are trying to buy a house, and I know the additional housing expenses are going to be a challenge. What I am asking...
