How Not Going Out To Eat Is Going … (Hint: It’s Hard!)
Actually, it’s been 10 days since I’ve gone through a drive thru and 9 days since I sat down in a restaurant, including Starbucks (‼️). And funny enough, we had a couple hundred extra dollars in our budget to put toward Katelyn’s braces payment this week.
Damn it, I *hate* it when Randy is right. 🥴😂 Randy + I have it written down in our Start Today Journals that we don’t eat out for an entire year. We tried to do this a few years ago and one of my so-called friends used to wave her French fries in front of my face just to see if I’d crack (yes, I did and no, we aren’t friends anymore). Lucky for my family, I’m a good cook and lucky for me, I like to cook. 😂
This weekend should prove interesting, traveling while taking a vow of not eating out. My plan is to eat before we leave for the airport, and once I land – go to the grocery store to pick up a few things to eat so I’m not tempted to fail this challenge. And Randy is 100% in charge of shopping and cooking for the next four days, even with all the homecoming festivities for the week, football and soccer games.
Pray for me. Pray for Randy. Pray for the kids.😂
