Not Eating Out

I am in withdrawal! I'll admit it. I want to grab something at a fast food place SO BAD!! I want to sit at a Mexican restaurant and enjoy eating chips and salsa and then my favorite chicken tacos. I want to go out to eat and NOT cook!!

We did go out for my son's birthday to Valentino's for pizza and pasta buffet. But that's NOT fun with your kids. My husband and I didn't really even get to eat. And when we pay Grandpa pays for a buffet we want to get our money's worth. So that was kind of a disappointment. But what can I really expect when I'm eating with a 3-year-old and a 16-month-old at a birthday party buffet?

Today I had a meeting at church at 10. It was pretty brief, but the kids were fighting and crying almost the entire time. We left church at 10:45 and I knew we needed to get home for lunch (we usually eat between 10:30-11:15a). I wanted to just grab some tacos from Taco John's or a cheeseburger from McDonald's. But I resisted the temptation and drove straight home. Where I am now...with the baby in bed without lunch because he was crying continuously and with the "big boy" complaining at my feet that he's hungry while we wait for the oven to heat up for some homemade pizza bites and anticipate 15 minutes of them cooking in the oven. Urgh!! I wish we stopped for tacos! Who's idea was it to do "No Spend March" anyway?! ;)

The end is in sight- March is almost over! You can do it! I am cheering you on (while I sit here with a full belly from Arby's. Sorry- I couldn't resist ;-) You have done so well- I would not even attempt b/c I would just be setting myself up for failure! Willpower now!
