You want to know the truth about my week? I have no clue what we spent on food or even much of what my family ate this week.
I came down with The Ravaging Fever Flu (yes, doesn’t that just sound nicer than calling it “the flu”??) on Monday afternoon. By Tuesday morning, I had called my mom and begged her to come take over so I could lie on the couch and moan. I don’t really know what took place on Wednesday and Thursday except that I was miserable and out of it.
The Grandmas took over childcare, thankfully. And me? Well, I pretty much never drink soda pop and rarely ever take medicine but that all went out the window this week. If I took ibuprofen, I could get my fever down below 103 and Sprite was the only thing that sounded good to me (except, go figure, McDonald’s Apple Pies!). So I popped pills, drank Sprite, and was a couch potato.
Thankfully, I’m finally starting to feel better, but I’m just going to not worry about what we spent on food this week. When Mom’s sick, survival mode ensues and sticking to the grocery budget isn’t really high on the priority list.
Next week I plan to be back in full force… only would someone please tell me how to kick this Sprite habit? Because that stuff is expensive!
