Very rarely do I do more than one post a day…I admire those who have the time to post about every single meal (they obviously don’t have kids, and I think are probably a little on the compulsive side). I’m lucky if I can post 3 days in a row during the week! My post from this morning was actually begun last night–Once we were done eating & I finally sat down to relax, I sort of crashed. That, and for about 30-45 minutes, the bambino & I were playing while Jay was trying to watch more Python. Since this is the last nice day we’re supposed to have for awhile, I thought I would take advantage of it, and walk somewhere other than Pizza Hut for lunch (that, and due to my putzing around far more than I should’ve, I didn’t have time to actually pack).
Enter Cottonwood Coffee.
One of the reasons we bought the laptop (besides me being able to join Jay & the bambino in the living room in the evenings, instead of sitting off in the dining room trying to blog), was also for when we travel. Today, I decided to take advantage of Cottonwood’s wi-fi. Plus, they’re a healthier alternative to the Hut, and I eat so much junk so much more often than I need to.
They have a large selection of paninis and other sandwiches. I opted for the Gourmet Grilled Cheese.
Ahh, potato chips. Whatever would I do without you? Drop about 10 lbs., probably. Oh well. As long as I don’t buy them, I won’t have a reason to eat them.
And while I know I shouldn’t be eating out, I figured this is the sort of thing that would be allowed–Once in a great while. I’m thinking I might have to tweak the budget as it were. We’re only about halfway to where I thought we should be by this point in February. Part of it is going over a couple times on the groceries. We also got George’s one night. Still, it’s a work in progress, and while I’d like us to have more, at least we have something saved up. It’s better than nothing, and it’s better than we’ve been in a long while.
And on that note, I’d best bus my table, pack up my gear, and head back to work, before my boss puts out an APB on me!
