We're Going Out

My husband and I are going on a date tonight. I'm so excited!!! We're going to a movie, it's been nearly a year since I last went to a movie...seriously, I even remember the date of the last movie I went to. It was June 2, 2007...I can't believe it's been so long. I suppose there are a lot of other fun things we could do, some people get gps tracking devices and find hidden object things. At least I know I have a cousin who's into doing that. But I'm so much more simple. Dinner and a movie, or even just a movie is my idea of a good night out with my husband.

I need to escape

I'm so stressed out. Our finances were looking up, we were going to be able to pay off all our medical debt. Then our trip back east cost more than expected, but with the economic stimulus check we were still going to be ok. But now, our medical debt is going higher up because of my stupid teeth. I'm so sad. :( I really just need to escape somewhere far away, like the Outer Banks or something. But no, gas is too expensive so I couldn't do that even if I was irresponsible enough to run away. So here I sit in my own private Hell...I hate where we live and now I'm bummed about our finances yet I'm in pain. Oh joy! Lol!

I Think I Can, I Think I Can...

I'm desperate to lose this baby weight once and for all. I've been so good this past week. I've been to the gym several times and have been using their ellipticals. I love those darn things! Right now I'd gladly trade my treadmill in for an elliptical trainer. Our gym doesn't have much else to offer. There are a few exercise bikes, the two elliptical machines and a bunch of weights. The weights are ones I'm not familiar with, so it's hard for me to know what to do there. No one actually works at the gym, so I can't ask anyone either. You just go, type in a code on the door, do whatever you want and turn the lights out if no one else is there when you leave. Kind of strange, huh?

I'm Sick of Daylight Savings Time

My kids were conspiring against me last night. I swear I was up so many times during the night. A little after 5am I was up yet again and this time it was harder to get back to sleep afterwards. The sun was already up and it was light enough in our room that I was sure the lights were on. Gah! I guess that's what we get for living on the far east edge of the time zone, but still...that's way too early for the sun to be up!!!

Is there anything that isn't overpriced these days?

Good gosh! I swear everything is overpriced these days. And if you live in the boonies like us you get it even worse. Like our gas is 25 cents or so more than in Denver, which is about 2 1/2 hours away. Eggs...$4-something a dozen, Milk...nearly $5 a gallon and our store just stopped carrying skim milk (gah! now I have to go 40 miles for my milk!) and the list goes on. I guess you can always get a best buy online at or something. Too bad they don't sell gas, milk and eggs, huh? LOL!

What am I going to be when I "grow up?"

Yes, I'm almost 30, I'm a wife and a mother of 2. So you'd think I was grown up, huh? But what am I going to do when I'm done having kids and they're all in school? I get bored of being at home, plus I really miss making money. I didn't make a ton before I quit to stay home, I was in the mid-20Ks is all, but if I made that now it would sure help. I'm not looking to be a futures broker or anything. But I want something I can do part time so I'm home when my kids leave for school and I'm back home when they get home. They're more important to me than any amount of money so I want to be there for them, but good gosh I need something to keep me from being too bored once they're out of the house.

Where is all the fun stuff?

I swear, I'm struggling to find fun stuff online. I used to find stuff all the time. Sigh...

Wanting While Poor

Have you ever felt so poor that you couldn't buy anything? I'm feeling like that right now after all we spent on vacation. We totally didn't keep to our budget. I swear we bought everything in sight. I'm surprised we didn't come home with a bag full of ostrich feathers, it would have made sense since we bought everything else under the sun. Or so it seems. LOL! I'm sure I'm not the only one who has felt this way, right?

Cell Service and Travel

As you know, if you read my last post, we just got home from vacation. While traveling across the country we came into many areas with poor cell phone coverage and reception. Some cell phone amplifiers may have helped us keep our reception or at least helped us hear better when we did have poor service. Have you ever had a problem with your cell phone reception?

Celebrities and Rehab

I just got home from vacation and I spent time in the car getting "caught up" on my celebrity gossip. Why the heck do so many of them end up in drug rehab? Seriously, just because you're young and have tons of money, that doesn't mean you have to be stupid too! Geez! I guess I should be happy and drug free, but more power to those who do go to rehab.
