Today I told HubbyHubby that we need to sit down and do the bills. Argh.
HubbyHubby said, "Let's make a date out of it."
I took it from there.
I got some fancy wine, cheese, crackers and fruit.
Put the kiddos to bed.
Set the table up with a candle, our little spread, and all the bills.

But how do you keep him? Ah, that's the question.
