G-man has been trying to get back in my good graces. And honestly, he has been working hard this week. But we will see if the momentum continues. We have been here before....things are fine, even good, for a few weeks, and then we are back to same ole same ole.
Fridays are typically our "errand" day. We are both off of work. Kids are at school (or camp, now). So we can bee-bop around. Tomorrow's schedule includes dropping his car off for an oil change (woo hoo! Have a gift card, plus 10% coupon, PLUS, a $13 cash rebate!). After that....I figured we would do our weekly grocery shopping, and I need to get a gift for a baby shower.
He wants to go to the movies (a super duper RARE event in our house). Again, in an effort to woo me, he found a local theater that has the new Twilight movie (yeah, I am a tween....a 35 year old tween) at 10am. But even the matinee price would be $15 for the two of us. No drink or snack. Just $15 for the honor of watching the movie.....and that is at the cruddy theater!
I told him that while the idea was nice, it really is too much money. And reiterated that getting out of debt is sacrifice. I need to keep pounding that idea into his head!!! Date night does not have to be expensive. And it doesn't have to satisfy anyone except us.
I am fine with spending the day doing errands. And waiting a few months for the movie to go to the redbox and we can rent it for a buck.
At what point will he learn all of this??? Didn't we just have an $80 disaster date night dinner, just a week ago????
