Men Are From Mars, Woman Are From Venus

John: We have x dollars left in our savings. (x=number that should be higher but Lisa had a spending problem.) What do you think we should do with it? Perhaps we should prioritize our bills, cancel unnecessary things like satellite radio in the car, etc.

Lisa: Nope. I think we should take the money we have left, buy three plane tickets and fly somewhere really far away. We could stay in an all-inclusive resort, bask in the sunlight, and forget all our problems.

John: Yeah, but I'd still be unemployed and then we couldn't pay our mortgage.

Lisa: But at least we would be on vacation.

(Perhaps the title for this post should be - Why Lisa Isn't In Charge of the Bills, Part 483974)

Ugh.. I manage the bills, but probably shouldnt. Heath is in charge of 1 bill and always manages to pay it late!

Excellent, excellent plan.

Make it 4 plane tickets... I'll come babysit little Maggie Moo so you guys can blow your last $20 at the casino. Taking up gambling might be your solution - you could turn $20 into $200,000. It happens. I've seen it happen in movies - and they must be based on some truth....

Guys just don't think!

I'm right there with you. Money in the bank? Experiences spent together as a family ARE. PRICELESS!

Love your humor and blog!

I manage the bills and there was a time I would have done the exact same thing you wanted to do. In fact I did. Now we're digging out of that mess. Stay away from the budget. I mean it. Stand clear! ;)
