Birthday on the Cheap

Paul is my boyfriend for almost seven years now. We are both mature and raising teens separately from a previous marriage. We are in no hurry to tie the knots. Some time we will get there before we move to our retirement home :). Anyway, we have grown very relaxed with each other, and we laugh a lot together. It revolves around (mostly) how cheap he is. Of course, I like to exaggerate but that's what jokers do. 

Here's what my cheap boyfriend did this week.

  1. My boyfriend is so cheap, he took me out for a birthday lunch in a Japanese restaurant (not cheap, but . .  ). Then, instead, of ordering me dessert there, he took me to an ice cream shop next door.  "it is cheaper there," he says. 
  2. Not only that but instead of taking me for a nice walk in the park while licking our ice cream, he asked to walk just outside in the parking lot. He did not want to waste gas on a drive to the park. 
  3. We also stirred away from the stores especially the Jewelry store. "They are open," he says. (This reminds me when he offered to walk to the mall with me after 6 pm when the stores were closed. I really liked a pair of boots I could see through the display that I could not buy).
  4. "I will take you for a nicer date on Saturday for your birthday week." Something to look forward to, so I thought . . .  He took me to a trade show to look at RVs, not to buy but just to look. He was even complaining about the $10 entrance fee he paid for both of us.
  5. Oh, I haven't told you about the big stone he gave me for my birthday. It was this plastic gem on a Hallmark card. Yup, that's my stone pictured above!
Oh, Paul makes me laugh. Please note, I am not putting him down. I really like the guy. He is such an awesome person and he truly takes care of me. He keeps me happy.
Silly Sunday post, my boyfriend is so cheap jokes

  2. I'm a cheap husband. I took my wife to the movies today because I get free passes from my employer. No Popcorn, no drinks.

Overdue Gratitude

Hello, hello. I am here after two months. I have been meaning to write my gratitude but did not get myself to sit down and actually type and post it. My daughter turned 21, an adult but still young at heart and spirit. She is my forever baby and youngest and smallest.  We celebrated 2020 style, just me and her in Estes. We stayed in a condo with a nice view. The place was by the stream and the water was not all frozen yet. We could hear the water flowing with its relaxing nature sound. We walked outdoors in with the cold breeze. Surprise, surprise, we were the only ones outdoors. The masks, I must admit, felt good to wear as our breath, at least, bouncing back on our face felt warm. Paul and I celebrated our two-months anniversary in a neighboring state and ordered takes-outs. We hang out (in?) ate, drank, and talked. The drive was beautiful passing by packs of rams unsuspecting of the cars passing by. We finally got our professional wedding (and video) shots. They are all beautiful in
