F is for Failure
"F" is for February and also for "failure". February was an epic FAIL for our family's 2011 New Year's resolution. I've lost count, at this point, how many times we "cheated" and ate out (beyond our established "exceptions" to the rule). It started out small as I assume all New Year's resolution crash and burns usually do. So, now like the rest of the country, we made it into month 2 of our resolution before total failure!
So, there you have it. We had a month of colossally bad planning and follow through and lots of eating out as a result.
I'd love to say we have gotten ourselves back together and are back on track. Actually, when my husband suggested I blog about our failure, I thought "Sure. I'll do that. Just as soon as we are back on track." Um, that's not that much better than just ignoring it and pretending it didn't happen.
But let's look on the bright side. This month, I made 2 of my 3 planned Valentine projects. And I organized a drawer!
Now, pay no attention to the fact that this is the only organized space in my entire home. It's still a nice drawer! Nevermind I have been working on organizing our play room for close to a month now (a weekend project at best), did you see the lunch drawer?
Here, get a good look:
Another bright side...we ate at home last night. We had Costco Orange Chicken:
It was pretty tasty. Here is the recipe for that:
1. Drive to Costco
2. Buy the box of frozen orange chicken
3. Follow instructions on the package
4. Make some rice (I did actually cook my own rice)
5. Feed it to your family
Hey, when you are used to getting F's, you should celebrate C's!
