For the last two weeks, our household has been in survival of the fittest mode.
Well ok, let’s be real, we’ve been in survival of the fittest mode for the better part of almost four years since the Circus’ arrival.
But these last couple of weeks have been rough. As if normal everyday life wasn’t enough, we have the reno going on at the 70’s Landing Pad, are in the midst of Bill’s basketball season and trying to get the Circus fully potty trained among other things.
A trip to the grocery store, much less actually making dinner, requires nothing short of an act of congress around here.
So Tuesday night when I finally got home from dropping off Bill’s basketball team’s pre-game meal, dealing with all the contractors at the new house, and a doctor’s appointment that had already been rescheduled once, Grunt Labor asked “What’s for dinner?”
My typical response at that point in the day would have been “It’s every man for himself.”
However, one cannot really say that when there are no groceries in the house.
So I answered with my new typical response that has surfaced these last few weeks, “Where do kids eat free tonight?” because that is where we are going for dinner.
Well apparently, there aren’t many places kids eat free on Tuesday night. All over the internet there were multiple claims that Tuesday was kids eat free night at Applebee’s, however, upon calling my local Applebee’s they said they didn’t do that there.
So we loaded up and drove to Merv’s just down the road which has the best hamburgers in town.
And I’ll be damned if it wasn’t $1.99 kids meal night.
And when you made your hamburger into a combo, your beer was just $0.75. Not on the kid’s meal – my meal. I’m not that bad of a mom.
However, later than night I realized I had forgotten to pick up the to-go box which contained the better part of the $1.99 kids meal I was so ecstatic to get.
You know you don’t wanna miss any of this crazy.
