Thank you thank you for your very thoughtful and thought-provoking comments about the wedding post. The situation is this: the mother of the bride, a close friend of mine, is in a financial bind - she wants to provide more food and alcohol for the reception but she has run out of money. At this point the wedding/reception plans cannot be changed. She is REALLY stressed out.
I am going to let this situation simmer on the back burner for a few days and see what develops. It is too late to suggest that things be done differently as the wedding is next month and everything has been put into motion. I'll let you know how it turns out.

I have pedalled 45km so far this week! I am fast approaching one of the most beautiful cities in all of Canada. I should reach it after four more days of biking. Can you guess the name of the city? Here are a few picture clues:
Tonight volleyball starts up again so I'm hoping that it encourages me to get out of the house a little more often. This reluctant spring has had me stuck inside much longer than usual and I'm feeling lethargic and bloated - yechhh!
IN FINANCIAL NEWS:
I'm in a bit of a bind as my misc budget line is under $20 until April 15th payday and I have a dinner to go to (fancy schmancy restaurant) this Friday night. I fully intend to go as I haven't seen some of my friends since I went into hibernation a few months ago. However, the triple eating out day (last Saturday) has gobbled up most of my spare cash! My recent art purchase and miscalculation of my tax refund has also meant squeezing an extra $450 out of my April budget so I need to control my spending a little (lot) better than I have in the first six days of this month.
So far I have cancelled three $50.00 automatic transfers into my EF, my trailer fee fund and my PEI property tax/home insurance fund. Hopefully I can make up these payments in the second half of April, but that isn't likely. I've also cancelled a $300.00 Line of Credit extra payment to help cover those one-time expenses and that really hurts my feelings :(
However, in the immortal words of Scarlett O'Hara "tomorrow is another day" and perhaps will provide some fresh perspective on my troubling dilemmas.
I leave you with a great clip from my favorite comedy show: "Whose Line is it Anyways"; it's a little racy in case you don't like that kind of stuff;p
Ryan is trying to break out of prison and Wayne is trying to help him escape using a helicopter. LOVE IT!!
