Our friends Stacy and Steve got engaged this weekend. They bought the ring together just a few weeks before – not unlike another couple I know – so it wasn’t entirely unexpected. They’re good people.
Friday night Tammy and I went out for sushi and I went a little crazy with the gin and tonics later that evening. Saturday was rough.
I’m at a point in my life where I’m ready to buy nice things for myself, my wife, and my house, but I unfortunately don’t have any money to do so. Raises are an infrequent event at my company and Tammy’s company is about the same. I don’t think that either one of us have gotten raises since we bought the house last year, so we’re still dangerously low on funds. At least I’ve got my health, and I’m pretty happy with how my life is going.
