What a Relief


Nate and I just so happened to get a sitter last night for the first time in while. This was a first time thing for Kenna. She is almost 1 year and has never been away from me. I was scared to leave her, but I knew that she would be comforted by Kayla if the inlaws couldn't get her happy. I am pleased to say she did pretty well. Only problem was she refused to take a bottle and got a touch dehydrated I think because she didn't pee for the entire time we were gone and even at 11pm when I checked her diaper it was dry. I am not in a big hurry to leave her again because of that. It was a much needed break for me though. We were only gone from 6-9:30 so she lived! We just went to Macaroni Grill and had a nice dinner with a few glasses of wine and then to Lowes to get some more bathroom project stuff. I swear that is never ending! Anyhow, we had so much fun just being us. Looking back, we were breaking the Sabbath too and quite frankly, I don't care. That was his only day off in 13 days and I wasn't going to miss an opportunity to go on a date together! Oh and I forgot to mention more recently, WE ARE DEBT FREE!!!! BUT, we are now trying to pay for this big remodel which is inching up in cost everyday, so money just never ends lol. By September though, all this craziness is going to stop and he will be having 3-4 day weekends every week. I am really looking forward to it!

Congrats on being debt free, my DH and I are working on the same thing with Dave Ramsey's plan. We've only been doing it for about 2 months and have a loooooooong way to go but we know we're on the right path!

I don't have enough discipline to be debt free. There I admit it. Big sigh of relief. We will always have consumer debt, and that is OK.
