"Bridge of Wings -
Where He Waits"

despite my grumblings about finances (which also may partly be the fact that, at the moment, when there is extra money, it's still not enough to try to cover even one bill in the debt hole we need to get ourselves out of -- making it feel pretty pointless to even try at the moment), there is one thing that makes it worth it to be out here in georgia (other than the wonderful things happening with taz): we actually get to go places and do things every now and then. part of that is that we do make some extra money now and again, and part of the -- the biggest part, probably -- is having a car.

freedom is a very cool thing, ya know.

kitten couldn't make it up this weekend, but we decided not to waste it. yesterday we decided to take the kiddles out to lunch. jewel, as usual, wasn't around and couldn't have paid her share even if she had been, so it was just us and the little ones. we decided to check around a local mall to see what they had in terms of outlying restaurants -- which wasn't much, as it turns out. but there was a mexican place. now, a few months ago, we had lost our fave mexican place when it closed down, so we've been looking for a new one, but really haven't been too impressed with anywhere we've been to so far. so we decided to give this one a shot.

and found our new place. the food rocked, the prices were reasonable, the distance workable.

after lunch, we did a swing through the mall, got youngest some sun glasses since she seems to be having light sensitivity problems (she's seeing an ophthalmologist in june so maybe we'll find out what's up with all that). we didn't stay out late, we did spend a little too much, but we also had a very good time.

today it was me and the man time. jewel watched the kids (for a break on the money she owes us), and we went off and saw x3, had some lunch, swung by target to get in on a sale on fans, and picked up a new phone at best buy. lunch was at the same mexican place from yesterday (i told saxy that i was waiting to watch him move in. lol) -- still wonderful, but i think the movie popcorn interfered with it a bit (and, yes, i know, we shouldn't have even had the popcorn, diets and finances considered).

x3 . . . well, i'm not too sure about it. i enjoyed it as a movie experience, didn't like it so much as a x-men fan. they set it up for a possible sequel, but i doubt it would fly with the characters they dumped out of the equation. i definitely wasn't happy with the lack of special effects used for phoenix. it just didn't work for me. some people have complained about what went on with rogue, but i can see it at the age she is for these movies, so it didn't bother me. and anyone who stayed until the very end of everything can see that it wasn't a permanent thing. anyway, so, there were things i enjoyed, a few more things that annoyed me (the handling of storm in the films has irked me from the beginning). i wouldn't say it's the best of the films, but was worth seeing -- and i'm quite the picky movie goer.

course, now we get to pay for these little outings in terms of the financial juggle. any activities when we see kitten and her man next weekend will have to be on her paycheck since we're looking on playing catch up for the next couple of months.

and, yes, i'm stressing a bit about the money, but really trying not to too much. i needed time with my family after that last couple of weeks, and needed time away from kiddles. the rest of summer won't be so care free since i'm not working. in fact, you could call this a last hurrah until october or so since it'll take that long for the paychecks to catch up to the deficits from the summer.

right now, i'm pretty content. i've spent some very nice time with my younger kids, without all the stress and drama that has gone over the last few weeks. then i did the same with the husband. i'm tired, but tired in a good way. i enjoyed myself and enjoyed my family for the first time in a long while, really.

and that means a heck of a lot more to me than money.
