Been awhile - some updates

June 29th, 2015 at 06:12 am

Just checking in. Things have been busy over here. SO and I had a blast on our mini getaway (2 days at a local BnB). There was a bit of confusion which resulted in us getting an extra night sometime in the future, so we'll definitely be going back there. The restaurant had the best toast I've ever had, and it turns out, it's just from Costco, so I'll definitely have to check into getting some.

We leave for Fl on Wednesday afternoon. I still have no idea about costs to us, but I guess we'll find out. My brother is going to be staying at our place to take care of the animals, so that will save us quite a bit in boarding fees. I plan to cover his food costs (I'll leave a frozen casserole or two for him to heat and eat, plus we have a pretty stocked fridge) and pay him a small flat rate - probably $75 or $100.

SO and I spontaneously decided to do a 3-day detox cleanse. The scale hasn't been moving for my dietbet, Fl is coming up, and it's just generally a good idea to hit reset on our bodies. The total cost for all ingredients for both of us was about $160. While I definitely could have done better on this (buying frozen or from Aldi), it comes out to about $80/person or about $26/day. The average cost is supposed to be about $16. I will also note that some of the cost was for supplements which will obviously be more expensive. As for the cleanse itself, we made it through day 1 (although we're both a bit crabby about not getting food). The breakfast drink isn't too bad; lunch is just brutal; and dinner is manageable. We're hoping that even though we'll be off of it by the time we leave for Fl, it'll help us keep our gluttony in check. I will also add a huge shout out to SO who's basically only doing it to support me. There's no way I'd stick to this by myself, but having him there makes it easier.

Animals are all good. DD2 is finally starting to get the hang of going outside. She's been going on the patio consistenly for awhile now, but in the past few days, she's finally started going number 2 actually outdoors. We're also transitioning to taking her all the way outside whenever she goes to the patio door. DD1 got the hang of potty training so much quicker, but there is light at the end of the tunnel.
