Day 232 and Flies by fast

Boy, weekends, even 3 day ones fly by so fast! I have got some work done on my homework today, but I am feeling very frustrated and overwhelmed right now. I've got a busy weekend next week and these assignments are due on Sunday so I'd really like to have them mostly done by Friday. So hopefully I'll have a breakthrough soon!

I'm fighting off the temptation to eat out tonight. I keep telling myself that we "deserve" it. I'll let you know how that battle turns out. LOL.

Well, guess I should dive back into my homework now...

It's so funny that you pose the argument "we deserve it" to eating out, because I do the exact same thing.
Where most people use food as a reward, I use spending money as a reward. I can come up for all kinds of "reward reasons" for spending, spending.
It is a vicious cycle, and I constantly have to train my mind to break away from the idea that "deserving" something is a myth painted by our self-serving culture.
It's good to know I'm not the only one feeling this way!

Well, we ended up going with our planned meal which was canned soup and garlic bread. It was pretty yummy, and I have to say I'm proud of us. It was hard!

That's awesome u did it though :-)

I have a very hard time justifying eating out when I can make supper so inexpensively at home. Having said that, making supper for myself and Randy is way easier than making it for a family. You did good!

Thanks, Mandy & Linda! Linda, I just tend to go through these burn-out phases where I get so sick of cooking. That's when I have the hardest time planning and cooking meals.

Mom Thumb said...

LOL, I can certainly understand that, since most days you've already prepared meals and snacks for little people.

You know, Linda, I think that's it exactly. I've prepared breakfast, lunch, and snack for up to 7 kids and it's hard to make myself want to cook again in the evening. That's why I use my crockpot so much, I can start it earlier in the day when I've still got a semblance of energy left. LOL.
