The title "LBUM" seemed so crude to my delicate, refeeened old lady's, formerly Brit ears, that I never actually braced myself to read the post.

But we lived below our means tonight! Wednesday, in our marriage, is "date night". One of us chooses 3 restaurants, the other has the final choice from those three. Must be inexpensive.

DH is bedridden recuperating from a bad auto accident. I said "It's Date Night. We'll do "take out" as a special treat."

In nearly 46 years of marriage we have done "take out" or Fast Food at home perhaps a dozen times. He was surprised. "Pizza!!!"

I granted him his first choice.

"Okay. But to make it a real Date Night you have to get out of bed and get to the family room."

It is a huge ordeal, involving lots of my help, and a platform walker. At least 25 minutes to get there, and be seated, and another 20 to get back.

But we did it. We had a real Date Night in the family room. $13 for the pizza instead of $50-65 on our normal date night. Woo hoo.
