We are leaving next week for Mexico and I have a bad case of anxiety about leaving my kids. My MIL is taking them and will be staying at our house when Punk has school. I am so worried about leaving them. At this point, if I could cancel the airfare and get my money back, I would do it. I know Punk and G will be in good hands but I just worry about them. It's so hard to leave them even though I know we are ready for our first ever kid free vacation since having Punk.
In the last two weeks, we bought half a beef and half a pig. For the pig, we got 99 pounds (hanging weight so I think we actually get 60% of it). The meat was $148.50 and 83 for processing. We ended up with about 60 pounds and paid about $3.86 a pound. The pork was the best I've ever had. For the beef, it was 405 pounds hanging weight which probably netted us about 243 pounds of meat. The meet was $900 and the processing was $238. That works out to about $4.68 a pound for locally grown hormone free beef.
I'm stealing a page from The Hawaii Planner and trying my best to eat 5 servings of fruits and veggies every day. I'm terrible about making sure my kids eat well and then I will eat whatever. For instance, they will get fruit as a bedtime snack. After they go to bed, I will grab chips for a snack for myself. I want to lose 5 pounds which I attribute to my taking birth control. I've stepped up my workouts and need to focus on my eating, especially because I will be in a bathing suit next week. Yikes!!!
For Mexico, does anybody have any advice on what to bring? My coworker told me to bring Imodium in case we get sick. Anything else that is a must have? We've never been there so any advice would be helpful.
