Basically the general guidelines

  1. we will allow ourselves to dine out once per quarter to allow for the occasional business meeting or special celebrations
  2. if we are out on business or having a meeting in a coffee house we can order the bare minimum needed to mix in, no need to be bigger freaks than we already are, right? **snort**
  3. coffee does not count, we gave up fancy coffee long ago so the occasional coffee we feel is not a problem
  4. if on a business trip there is no way we will be cooking from a hotel room


Sick is when take out is nice

So somehow I have contracted the deadly husband cold, which isn't really that bad for women. Weird hunh? Knocks men right down but women? Nahhh not so much! But I'm still tired and snuffy andwouldn'tIlovetoorderout? Why yes I would. I would also like Starbucks to deliver a hot coffee every hour on the hour. And while we're dreaming of the impossible I'll take a vacation to somewhere warm.

This is the first time not dining out has been a real issue for me. I'm not sure what's up but I am pretty much fantasizing about a hot italian grinder right about now. Guess I'll go make dinner which is scalloped potatoes with ham. Or Au Gratin. Which ever one has cheese in it is what I'm making. And forget my sandwich craving which is probably just me being hungry.


  1. I hope you feel better soon. I really don't think there is a difference between the effects of a "man cold" on a man or a woman. Women are just tougher, haha.

  2. Feel better soon Laura! Kanani had a cough / cold and it held on for a couple weeks, even with all the good herbs and 'stuff'.
