Pizza! Pizza!


I left work a little early yesterday because one of the kiddo's friends was coming over for a play date. Not only did I have to pick the kids up from my parent's house, I needed to stop to pick up pizza and I wanted to throw some cookies in the oven (yeah, refrigerated cookie dough - that's how I roll!) . After picking up the kids, we went to Little Caesar's...sad to admit, but this is pretty much a weekly occurrence in our house. So, I ask for a cheese pizza and some crazy bread, pay and off we go! About 1/2 way home, I realize that the smell wafting through my car is not that of a cheese pizza. Hmmmm, is that onions, bell peppers and sausage I smell? When I stopped at a red light, I looked inside the box and sure enough - a deluxe pizza! Don't get me wrong, I love this kind of pizza....the problem is that Riley and her friend only eat cheese pizza. What do you expect from a couple of 4 year olds??? And Riley can tell if I've just given her a slice of pizza that previously had onions, bell peppers and sausage on it, lol!

So, once I get in the house, I started scrambling for the domino's pizza number (yeah, I forgot we have a Papa John's nearby too! Doh!). It's been years since I actually ordered a pizza for home delivery, because Little Caesar's is just too close and too cheap to not get.

$12 + tip for a medium cheese pizza?

Yeah, I'll stick to Little Caesar's from now on thankyouverymuch! Not that I can't appreciate a pricier pizza, but seriously, if I'm going to pay that much I'd rather go to Star Pizza! (yeah, I dunno when I became so cheap either...maybe when the munchkin started daycare with the kiddo and I felt like I have been paying a 2nd mortgage since???)

Once the kiddo's playdate was over and both she and the munchkin were both in bed, I finished getting everything together for the next day - you know, lunches, clothes, etc. Did some other stuff around the house and then hopped on the treadmill. It was getting pretty late, so my scheduled 40-minute run actually ended up being only 30-minutes and some change. Sorry folks, but once the 10 o'clock news comes on, I am pretty much done for the day!

I do have to say that I am pleased that my pace is staying below the 11 minute/mile pace that I had been doing on the treadmill for the past couple of years. I've been working on shortening and quickening my stride, and those treadmill intervals may be helping a little too. Now, we'll see how this translates into my outdoor runs...I imagine since I've been doing almost all of my weekday runs indoors that I will be much slower outside in the heat and humidity.

Is it October yet???

Ditch the kids, grab the hubbie, make it a date night at Star!

Medium deep dish from Star delivered to my place = $22 with tip!

Cassie, that $22 is well worth it when it comes from Star. Trust me, $12 of Dominos is soooo not worth it!
