Spent a wonderful four days on vacation with my daughter. I loved every minute of it. She loved it all as well, but evidently if you let your kid do stuff on vacation that you wouldn't normally do, it is the dirty laundry that is aired to everyone. Even a stranger on the plane.
My mommy let me swim in lightning.
My mommy walked away from me and I fell off a stool.
My mommy let me eat lots of junk and I got so hyper it gave me a headache.
Now, before you call CPS, the lightning was at least 20 miles away and we were sailing away from it. She told me time after time that she could get off those stools by herself, so I let her and she fell and as for the junk, we ate lots of good fruits, vegetables and other healthy things in addition to all the junk.
Today is a little bitter sweet. I spent lots of time back in reality. Washing clothes, grocery shopping, unpacking, paying bills and catching up on e-mails and reading everyone's wonderful blogs.
In case anyone was wondering, FH did not clean out the garage. He made a dent. He did do a bunch, but I still can't get my car in the garage. That man has more junk than anyone I have ever date. Hey FH, 1980 called and they want their sweaters back... I know there are lots of people that keep stuff because it was a gift or it has special memories, but at some point, you have to keep the memories in your heart and pass along the cross stitch coasters that grandma made. I know that you know what I am talking about.
Okay, my blog just posted itself unexpectedly. Is that you Grandma? Are you mad that I didn't keep the coasters?
Part of what I did today was bill management. I really thought with FH moving in that I would be more financially stable. He has given me money, but not the amount that we had agreed upon. I know the month isn't over yet, but I am wondering what our payment plan is. He got a checking account at the same bank that I am a member of and I told him I was confused. Why move your money to the same bank right before we get married? I figured we would go joint on checking after the big day. He doesn't want to do that. He said that he wants to keep his own checking in case he wants to buy me something. That doesn't sit well with me. It makes me think he is hiding something.
What doesn't he want me to know? How much me makes? How much he doesn't make? We have never officially discussed how much money either one of us makes. We did produce our expenses and discuss them, but never how much either one of us was bringing in. We will definitely be having this conversation before the big day. Not that I care if he makes more or less than I do. I just don't want any secrets between us. We can talk about anything and everything else, but when it comes to finances, he plays it pretty close to the vest.
