Ebb and Flow

Time has actually slowed this week. Monday and Tuesday dragged. It feels like we should be a lot closer to Friday than we are. I suppose I'm just excited for the weekend.

We'll be dining at Border Grill for the first time. I've always been curious, but especially so after watching Top Chef. Travelzoo's $49 dinner for two sealed it. We'll grab dinner there before the Dirty Heads concert at Mandalay Bay Beach.

We've been trying not too spend money this week, since July was a such a costly month. My car needed a new water pump for its 5th birthday. Registration was due, and let's not forget that car payment. We prepaid our hotel stays for San Diego and Anaheim. Bills are at their peak this time of year with high power, water and gas bills. We also bought the RZR. If I were to drop a coin in the piggy bank all I'd hear is an echo.

We need to spend on RZR accessories and Restaurant Week is coming. Tightening of the purse strings is in order, the timing just sucks. Football is right around the corner. Soon, Frank will go back to Mon/Tues off and we'll no longer have a shared day off. Time off is tricky during football season and we've already chosen our days. That's the time it's easier to save our pennies. Not now, I just want to enjoy what little is left of summer.

Don't get me wrong, I'm forever grateful for all that we are able to do. I know how fortunate we are. We work hard to play hard, it's all ebb and flow.
