I posted about our new family budget. The first holiday, Valentines Day, came and I did not have the money to get Big D a card or a bottle of wine. I had some spending money left over and went to the drug store and purchased .99 cent candy for the kids, Big D got some fruit twizzlers, and I bought myself a box of chocolates, handed them to Big D when I got home to hand back to me.
Big D put on some Tony Bennett and made his famous spaghetti, good and cheap.
We ate dinner together as a family while the crooners crooned in the background. We then watched some T.V. said the rosary as a family and called it a night.
Our first budget holiday was wonderful. The kids got a treat; we ate a good meal, spent time together, and I was able to have my chocolate when everyone went to bed.
It was a nice Valentines day, love was in the air and money was still in the bank.
