I'm a Good American

Last night my husband and I stimulated the economy with some of the money that was automatically deposited into our account last week from the government. We had an official date night complete with babysitter and dinner out. It was enjoyable. It's been nearly a year since we've paid a babysitter to watch our kids. We really wanted to see the new Indiana Jones movie, but decided against it since it was opening night and we have a 4 month old to tote around. I want to be sure to get good seats as well. We might stimulate the economy some more in a couple of weeks and see the movie then.


  1. Just found your blog. Very enjoyable! We are having a debate at our house. Did you pay tithing on your stimulus money?

  2. Hi Amber! You must have been inspired to find my blog and leave a comment because I didn't even think to pay tithing. I guess I forgot to think about it because it was automatically deposited and it came from the government around the same time as our tax refund. We don't pay tithing on our refund because we tithe on our gross income. But that's a very good question. I'm going to have to post about that tonight. I can see both sides of the argument, but my gut tells me that we should tithe on it.

    Hey, would you be willing to invite me to your blog? Any blog that has the word "wacky" in the name sounds like one that is worthy of reading. If yes, you can contact me through my contact form and I can send you my email address. If not, I understand that not everybody wants to make their wackiness so public. Have a good day!
