Holy Adult Stuff Batman.

Tonight we set up a 403b plan with a financial planner. We also picked out life insurance, did a cash flow analysis, made a financial plan and talked about creating living wills.

One question, lovelies,

WHEN DID WE GROW UP??

Well, I mean, I guess when this guy came along...


..but still.

A little over a year ago we were eating junk food for dinner and would actually spend our extra money on ourselves. We didn't do laundry but once a week, and if we would rather go out than clean the house we did.

Tonight, I came home from work, ran the sweeper, moped the floors made a dinner of grilled chicken, baked sweet potatoes, corn and salad.  We ate dinner, I did dishes and a load of laundry and then we sat down with a lady in a power suit and talked about mutual funds and aggressive vs conservative investments.

I feel old and responsible.

So now that the baby is asleep I will put my feet up on the couch, eat a bowl of ice cream and watch American Idol.  Because a person can only take so much responsibility in a day.

  2. I hate that grown up feeling you get sometimes, same goes for the times when I just want my Mommy. Good for you guys though for dealing with the stuff that no one wants to think about such as a living will.

  5. Ok I love this post. Right now I'm still in the we-do-what-we-want phase but working on moving up to the we-wake-up-with-babies phase. And I'm really hoping that my wifey skills will magically become amazing when that happens, even though I know it won't. But still... look at you all grown up :) Love your blog!! New follower :)

    My husband and I are in the midst of all those grown up discussions, including buying a house in the mix and I feel so old! Thanks for posting about it :) Makes me realise other people are in the same mix!

    Keep up the great work, loving your blog!
