Last night, I was whining to my husband about how I don't have any talents like all these other wives I see around me. I guess I must be having some sort of identity crisis or something. Just feeling a little bit useless. All of these women are making businesses with their cake decorating, sewing, food preparation, house warming talents and well, I'm just not one of them. I was even reading of one wife's budgeting talents on her blog and the following convo between Dev and I ensued (picture us in bed, Devin trying to fall asleep, and me going on and on about my lack of talents-nighttime seems to be my favorite time of the day to endlessly chat):
Me: "I don't have the talent of budgeting even."
Devin: "Yes, you do."
Me: "Dev, we don't even have a budget."
Devin: "Sure, we do. It's called, Spend Nothing."
We had a good laugh about that one! It's really, SO TRUE! I know exactly what our fixed costs are each month and plan for those; otherwise, we really don't spend anything. And I mean ANYTHING--except diapers, wipes, and an occasional bit on dates (but even then, we get buy 1 get 1 free meals or something cheap). So, I guess you don't need a budget when you don't have any money after all...
