A Friday Rant -

view out our window last anniversary
Just saying, it bugs me when I seem to be the only one in the family who is SERIOUS about economizing and saving money. Our wedding anniversary is the 16th - we don't have a pot to piss in yet hubby wants to take a weekend away spending 2 nights somewhere. He pouts if I say the unpopular, "We really shouldn't" so I guess I have to cave in - and just do it and if we have to spend the rest of the month, catching up - eating beans and weenies, I guess that is what I have to do.

Going away for 1 night is really a stretch. I hope I can talk him down to just that. Plus where do we go? We are surrounded by snow on the east, north and west of us. The only way out is south. Going to our state's capitol doesn't sound like a romantic weekend, but I guess it's better than staying home, where there are major tensions between him and my sons. 

Oh heck, I give up - - - or as my wise mother-in-law used to say, "It's only money!".


  1. My husband thinks I'm cheap. My mother thinks I'm a spendrift. What am I? My mother criticizes me for spending a dollar. My husband thinks $10 is lpennies. That I'm cheap for not spending ten dollars. I could go on and on. I could do a Friday rant:))

    1. That's funny. I always have a rant or two up my sleeve.
