here's a riddle

Where do two poor newlyweds go for their anniversary? Anything creative you'd care to share?

We'd like to go somewhere, even if it's just for a night, but we can't do anything crazy. It's been a fun little game since Andrew lost his job to see how much money we can save. It's tempting to spend it all on a mini vacation, but that would just be silly.

Honestly, Andrew's layoff has been such an amazing blessing in disguise. The two biggest issues have been (a) loss of income and (b) Andrew's bored. But the Lord is providing above and beyond financially and Andrew finds clever ways to stretch a few activities across an entire day. I'm so thankful for the peace we have about it all. After the way his job was before, it's refreshing to actually have time to spend together. For the first eight months we were married we had to fight exhaustion for half an hour of conversation before bedtime. It's fun to watch a movie in the middle of the week and not be up until midnight.

God is good, yes?
