When the going gets tough

It's becoming increasingly difficult to find things to do cheaply that keep our attention for more than 5 minutes. Money is so tight and we are waaay overextended. So what's a couple to do? The answer: Set up a bonfire and invite your family over. That's exactly what we did last night. I decided to forego school, came home and mowed the lawn (well 1/4 of it if you ask Aaron) for the first time in my life, and then we had my mom and dad over and Aaron's mom and stepdad over. They played a little horseshoes, we had some smores and had a good evening.

Aaron's parents are divorced and remarried and I always feel a little weird or guilty when we do something with one side and don't invite the other. My parents are still together so I don't have much experience with divorced parents and all the "rules". Apparently it's kosher to do things separately and not invite both of them everytime we do something. Especially since one set of parents live close and the other, not so much. It's something I've got to get used to as when I take this man, I also take his family. Maybe I'm too worried I'll hurt someone's feelings and usually I wish I could invite both sets, informing them that the other set of parents have been invited, and leave the decision to come or not on their shoulders. However, with my luck, they would both decline.


Have a great weekend!!!


Oh, a couple housecleaning issues:

1. The feet of bloggers page is almost ready.
2. Take a gander to the top of this site in case you thought the banner was an ad, it's not. It's the Amber Alert system. I'd encourage you to put the ticker on your site. Too many children in this world are missing.
3. I have a picture of my shoes, purse and jewelry for the wedding, I'll post that on Monday. :)

    Wow a bonfire sounds like a lot of fun! I wouldnt know the rules on the divorce issue either. My parents are still married and so are Ryans. Although they did divorce each other once and got remarried lol They were really young! Anyways, hope you have a great weekend.

    Yeah, I imagine the divorced thing is hard. I've dated a couple guys with divorced parents, but it was easy with them. The first guys family lived in Luxemburg (where he was from) and the second guys family was very nice but we never did anything with them. I always got the feeling like they didn't care much for me. Don't know why, but it was easy to avoid them that way! Have a great weekend :)
