Rough Weekend

May 15th, 2018 at 05:04 am

This weekend was really tough. We had a 1-yr. old's birthday party and Mother's Day. Suffice it to say, I didn't handle it well. I took yesterday off and am feeling much better today. On the positive side, DH's parents came over to grill for Mother's Day dinner. They brought everything which was a bunch of steaks, ribs, hot dogs, and wings, plus rice and cake. Other than making one plate for DH's brother who was working, they left everything else with us. So while there's only $27ish left in the grocery budget and half a month to go, we should be okay. This will be the second month sticking to the $250 and minimal eating out. (We did get Five Guys one night since they opened one close by to us, and we'll have our anniversary dinner somewhere - both budgeted.)

    Yes, that must have been rough. Taking a day off was probably wise.

    I can see how that would be rough. Sounds like your family and husband really did a nice job with the food - and you got the leftovers! Can I say that I love that your anniversary dinner choice was 5 Guys?!? I love them!
