Expensive Week Ahead

January 12th, 2008 at 07:01 pm

This week is going to be an expensive one for us. Tomorrow we take our oldest DD to college. It's 2.5 hours away and we'll be leaving right after church so we'll need to eat lunch and dinner. Lunch will probably be McDonald's, but we decided that dinner is going to be a special treat at Red Lobster. We don't have any Red Lobsters around us so we're going to take advantage of the trip and treat ourselves. DD#2 will also be going along with us.

Then on Tuesday, DH's father is having 5 heart bypasses done so we'll need to travel 2 hours to the hospital where that is taking place. Another day of eating out. Hard on the pocket book, but necessary.

Also hard on the WW plan. LOL! I am .4 pounds away from hitting the 30 pound mark so I am trying to be very diligent with my eating and exercising.

    I'm sorry to hear of your FIL's operation. Hope that all goes well. Know what you mean about those unexpected trips. My MIL recently had a fall, then a stroke and is now in a hospital for therapy. It's over an hour away but you try to do it in the same day.

    I have always found it interesting to take some snacks with me, water, sandwiches, etc. Also, some of the hospitals have cafeterias with salad buffets and you pay by the pound. You might get a healthier meal that way.

    It's good that you're treating yourself. I love Red Lobster as well.

    Thanks Aleta! It's going to be a rough day. I have some fat-free salad dressing packets that I bought from minimus.com that I'm going to take with me. I figure the hospital probably has a salad bar, so I'll be good to go!
