I narrowly avoided failure today! Well, that's a bit dramatic, but I'm pretty proud.

I went to Target on the way home to pick up a prescription. I REALLY wanted a Starbucks white hot chocolate but I RAN right past the Sbux area and hopped into my car. When Conrad got home, something happened to me. I decided I did not want to cook tonight. I wanted ... I don't know, something. Like Whataburger. I looked straight at Conrad and said, "I feel like I just want to burst into tears". That stopped him dead in his tracks, he didn't even know what to say and I don't know why I said it. I just know that approaching the stove made me want to bawl. STUPID.

I sucked it up and approached the stove and Jamie called to me. Tonight - chicken fajitas with corn tortillas and they were GOOD. Better than anything Whataburger can offer. It took just a few minutes - I don't know what was wrong with me earlier.

Anyway, Conrad had offered to go to Whataburger after my outburst and I said no. I feel like # 1 we saved money today. Two meals and the hot chocolate would have been like $20 and then the calories ... OMG. One day when I am sitting in a cardiologists office I will be really sad about all the Whataburger I was consuming. I don't want that. So - we stayed home dad gum it!

I also REALLY want to send Citibank $1000 this week and to do this, I can't be cheating on my dinner. Maybe ONE night this week, but not two and I did not want to waste my one night out at Whataburger. If I can send in this 1000 bucks, I will be down to $4880 and then I am DEBT FREE. I can almost taste it. It's so close.

How can I let a hot chocolate and a burger get in my way?

Thank you Jamie Oliver! LOL

You sound kind of like Julie in Julie/Julia. I'm proud of you! I also love your blog. I have it in my Google Reader feed so whenever you make a new post it pops up along with the others. So no, I don't obsessively stalk your blog, it's just in my feed. Nicely done with the cooking. Proud of ya!
