On Friday as we cleaned up the dinner dishes I asked Mr F...
"What is the one thing you miss most about not having money? What's the first thing you'd add back?"
"Going out to eat." He said.
"Me too." I replied.
Not vacations. Not new cars. Not furniture or clothes. Just give us a decent restaurant!
I can suck everything else up. I can budget out grocery money. He can drive a junker. But FOR THE LOVE OF GOD we just want to be able to go to a restaurant (not fancy folks!) and order WHAT WE WANT. And not even think about it.
Going out to eat had the biggest impact on our daily quality of life.
And it's the first thing we're adding back.
I'm not saying every day... but... once a week... that would be amazing! Just to be able to relax and enjoy someone else's cooking. Talk to my family. I really miss that.
