Ugh...that is all that I have to say. I HATE bills!!!! Well, everyone does.
I love Fridays, well I love the anticipation of Fridays. My husband gets to be home for the next two days and we get to spend time with family and friends. We usually have a fantastic time, but...
This morning I woke up, checked e-mail, and logged onto our bank account. Yeah! Payday!!!! Not. After paying our rent and car insurance we have a whole $67 to spend on groceries, gas, a birthday present, on and on and on. Needless to say it is not enough money for us to make any head-way on our debt reduction plan.
I know that my husband works hard, and we have it better than some people but it is still frustrating not to be able to do the things that we want to do.
This morning my husband asked me if we had enough money to go on a date, he really is the sweetest man. We rarely go out, honestly we have probably only gone on a dozen or so actual dates throughout the course of dating and marriage. (Isn't that sad???) But, I had to say no. We don't have the money after buying diapers and hopefully enough food to get by.
I am going to tell him that when we get his check for cleaning next week we will go out. Spend the $50 or so bucks and go to dinner and a movie. I love him, and I would love to spend some alone time with him....but, it is not always in the cards. I don't think that going on the occasional date, instead of paying extra on our debt, is going to hurt us but, in fact, help us in the long run. Having a healthy relationship is key, otherwise what are you living for? Living to be debt free??? That's sad. How do you and your spouse make sure that you get enough time together? What are your favorite cheap date ideas?
I can not wait to be debt free. But, is that ever going to happen?
