Random Thoughts

Football training camps started this week. Well all except the Cowboys who started early because they think they're special. Anyways..the big drama in the Redskins training camp is our 100 million dollar man (literally) can't pass his stupid fitness thing. Seriously?! Albert Haynesworth has already caused problems in the offseason by being stupid and now he can't pass the test so he can't practice. Dude is being paid ridiculous amounts of money and he's had a whole off-season to get in shape and he can't do it. Stupid.

My sweet boy spent Friday night and all day Saturday at the lake with grandpa. While the evening was nice without him I will tell you how wild and crazy me and the hubby got. We ate leftovers and then ordered a movie on On Demand. We didn't even leave the house. And I was in bed by 10. It's like at the end of Shrek 3 when Shrek was like, the kids are asleep what do you want to do and the shot pans out and Shrek and Fiona are passed out on the bed. Yep, pretty much us!

We did go out to dinner the next night after we both got off work and I remember why we hardly ever go out to a nice(ish) restaurant. We went to Chili's and I even had $14 remaining on a gift card and we still spent $33! I got a (delicious) strawberry daquiri, we ordered an appetizer and then we both got meals and it was $40 before the tip and gift card. Holy crap. We will be going out for our anniversary in a few weeks so I need to prioritize the money I guess! Especially if we are going to pay for a sitter too. Wow! I'm glad I'm not single in this world. Well I guess it wouldn't be to bad since I'm the girl so hopefully the boy would be paying for me but wow.

I am so ready for the heat to be gone here. We are currently under a heat advisory for the state of Kansas until 1pm Tuesday. We have had 7 days over 100 degrees so far this summer and it is only the first week in August. We are still expecting August to be hard. I'm really nervous to see what my electric bill is going to be. Pretty sure it feels like it is running all day and all night. And it still always feels like it's hot in the house. It's summers like these I wish we had a basement!

Ok. That's all I got for today. To check out more random go see Keely over at www.theunmom.com

My electric bill is already sky high and it's only getting hotter here.
I had to laugh at the dinner line. Me, hubby, and two boys went to eat at an all you can eat buffet the other day where it cost almost $40 for the four of us. I about stroked out. People laughed at me because apparently that's not a bad price to pay. Call me cheap.

I can't even comprehend the kind of money sports players make. It is soo far up there that my brain taps out.

LOL! Shrek and Fiona!
That is exactly why hubby and I never go out to eat. Hubby brought supper home last week and it costed $17! I was shocked. We won't be doing that again for some time.

My electric bill scared me bad last month. I am trying all I can to make it lower this month and that means sweating my butt off while doing nothing.
