That's right on Valentine's Day. Jacinda, Kiara, and our friend Amanda all drove down to LA to visit Heather and her girls. They are hitting the Fashion District in downtown today and not coming back until Thursday Night. What does this mean for me: Chipotle, movies, sleep, and my favorite: BBQ Rib-Eye Steak.
I bought the "King's Cut" at our local grocery store last night. Even now, it is sitting in the fridge marinating to perfection with my personal recipe of herbs and spices. You see, when you are married and have kids, even Taco Bell is going to cost you $15. If you hit say, Red Robin, You're talking $30 and that's drinking water. You think, I'll just get a burger: $9, Jacinda gets a burger: $9, then you have to buy some $6 Grilled Cheese Sandwich for the kid. Ahhh! So unless you want to pay $60 for dinner @ Applebee's, you won't be eating too much steak. So tonight, I feast. I even got a six-pack of Creme Soda in the bottle (my favorite by the way!).
I love going home everyday and coming through that door and hearing Kiara scream, "Daddy Home!" Tonight won't be that good, but at least I'll have a pound of meat to dry my tears. If you're reading family: I love you. Have fun!
