Our 2016 Mission and Our Favorite Person!!!!
So what's going on in my world? Pretty blah. Paid more off on the car. And that's about it. Talked to Anna and DJ this week. Normally, we just text. Anna has officially turned into Den. She said while she appreciated the fact that I wanted her to make decisions on her own. She said she would parent like Den and won't ever let her kids out of the house. DJ is pinching pennies and cleaning the apartment all of the time since his roommates aren't clean. Hmmmm, wonder who he is taking after?
Ok and on to a situation I need a bit of guidance with. A friend of our(Well, friends of the family) that spends money like its water, never mind the fact that they are drowning in debt, has invited us to a surprise birthday party for his wife. It's at a posh wine bar and its $20 per person to get in and its certain wines for 2 hours. We have to pay it so $40 for both of us and then the gift. It's also quite a drive so we won't be drinking. To summarize, it will be over 2 hours of driving, $40 to get in and not drink, and the gift and card. He politely argued with me until I said we would go. When I told Den, he stared at me and said,"we have to pay to give her a gift?" Any ideas on how to get out of this? And saying piss off isn't an answer because I have to see them at holidays. Don't get me wrong, I really like them but we don't have money to waste.
Thrifty at Sixty!!!!! Run over and check out how they decorated their new place!!!
Do you have plans for this weekend? Are you trying to come up with an excuse to get out of an expensive party?
Have a great weekend,
