This is what our nights look like. Although the husband usually gets about half the bed and the baby and I share a quarter of the space. So last night I decided it was time to start putting her in her crib. She went down about 7 and slept until 12.
Our split bedroom floor plan which I loved when I moved in, I hate now! I felt so far away from my baby. And it makes me so nervous because when Gianna sleeps she prefers to lay on her stomach. Face flat in the mattress. No matter how much you move her or prop her to lay on her back that's how she ends up. So needless to say when she woke up at 1230 I pulled her into bed with me. But what the cutest thing of the night was walking into her room and finding my dog guarding her crib. Made my heart melt
2. I have a love hate relationship with the army. I hate then when they make my husband leave all the time but I love them for their solid paycheck and occasional perks. Like our first family vacation will be to New Orleans thanks to a marriage retreat the army is putting on. Score! I've never been to New Orleans and can't wait to go spend the weekend there!
3. Budgeting- I have been trying to really budget and save money these past few months. I only use cash and have envelopes for everything. It's hard to budget when your husband doesn't get the concept. We each get a amount for spending money. He blows his the first day of payday instead of stretching it out two weeks. And since he knows I have envelopes of money for other things he thinks he can just use that. The other day he's texting me about transferring money so he can go to breakfast with the guys. I said there was none so instead if not going like a normal person would do I get a text saying I owe his friend 20 bucks. Sigh. Maybe one day he will understand the budget concept
4. And on to my last point. Downsizing. Lately I've been feeling the need to downsize. Growing up I never had cable. Ever. I didn't get cable until the hubs and I were married and living in our own place. Here in Fl the price of cable is insane. Back in nc with Time Warner I had home phone, high speed Internet and cable with hvo, dvr and show time. Here in fl I only have Internet plus cable with hvo and dvr and I pay more than double what I paid in nc. So I've debated about getting rid of cable. Or just switching to basic. But then I hesitate. Can I survive without my trashy reality tv shows. We have been making a point to then off the tv at 9 every night and read. It's been so nice. But could I always do that. Give up cable. And isn't it horrible that I don't know if I can give it up lol. Yet every month I complain about the cable bill. So I'm giving myself to the end of the month to decide
How about any of you. Have you gotten rid of cable or downsized anything in your lives?
