The Good, The Bad, The Ugly

The Good:  A family that not only does not mind cereal for dinner but requests cereal night!  I fully intended to make Shepherd's pie for dinner tonight, but my heart wasn't in it. The kids eagerly suggested cereal and I eagerly obliged! Lucky Charms, Honey Bunches of Oats, Apple Jacks and Fruit Loops each in their own recyclable containers thanks to CVS and some extrabucks cash!

The Bad: Feeling rushed, already running behind, starting the car and seeing 4 miles to empty. Ugh. Ugh. Then remembering that you lost your cash card. Then remembering that you have no cash. Then remembering that your husband is in a meeting.

The Ugly: Having to borrow cash from your own children. We hadn't eaten lunch either so they scrounged up some McD's gift cards from LAST (?) Christmas and their saved money.  I put $10 in the van and we had $12 for lunch at McDonalds.  From our meal choices you can tell its been one of those days!
