Live Blogging ...

today I am live blogging from McDonalds. Yes, it's true. We ate at McDonald's!
I know, I know, it's so not healthy for us and it's not good food, etc, etc, etc ... but sometimes, well you gotta do what you gotta do!
We took Miss M to preschool and the McDonald's is just down the road and I need to update my budget forms for February and March (I've been slacking big time). And so I had two choices today:
leave the house at 11:35
get to preschool at 12:00
walk M in and drop off at 12:10
arrive back home at 12:35
leave the house at 1:30
pick her up at 2:05
get back home at about 2:35

That's a lot of driving and not a lot of time to be home.
So instead we went to the farmer's market, drove right to preschool, went 5 minutes down the road, got lunch, kids played, mom did budget sheets, checked e-mail and I even have time to fire off a blog entry to you! =)

So, not much to really tell you today. The farmer's market was good, but they were out of potatoes. Bummer. They had the really good carrots though so that was cool. My husband booked us on another weekend away at the end of April. This is definitely going to be our year of travel because he also wants to go away for another weekend! All these trips are to visit family and most will simply be the gas to drive there - but given the price of gas, that will be a lot of money anyway. I though, have a feeling come a year from now I will NOT want to travel at all. Or I'll discover I really do love it and want to keep on traveling. Who knows?

Anyway, it's time to go pick up Miss M from school. Hope you are all having a great day on this Thursday - which by the way, it's finally starting to feel lke spring in the Chicago suburbs and it really is helping my mood a lot! =)


  1. Oh yes, we often find ourselves at McDonalds for just the same reasons too - it's just too darn convenient! :)

  2. We are guilty of hidden pleasure once in a while too...and yes it is way to convient!

  3. I'm so not a health nut.. I think we do the McD's playland at least twice a month if not more.. :)

    What a fun way to save gas.. you got time to sit and do what you needed to do, the kids had fun and you don't have to spend that extra in gas.. YEAH...

  4. That's hilarious. Just makes sense for a mom to live blog from McD's!


  5. I finally have some time to make my rounds to the UBP. Sorry I'm a bit late, and thanks so much for stopping by my blog.
    I love your blog, I'm so glad I stopped by. Hope you enjoyed the party!!
