Another Reason to Love the Midwest

We went out to dinner tonight. Max, Abram and I each got a meal and I got a drink. The bill came to $31. After tip.

I don't think our bill came to less than $40 once in Alexandria. My grocery bill last week was 2/3 what it has been for the past couple years.

At this rate Abram will be sipping his diet root beer in his skipper cap on a boat in no time. Pay cut, shmay cut. Well, it might be an inflatable row boat on the golf course's pond, but it will be a boat none the less.

your previous post was hilarious!! I swear I am constantly reading about (or seeing pictures of) Abram carrying grow men around!! I'm talking about the piggy back around easter time or something. And I must say that I am extremely jealous of your new found cost of living...there's nothing inexpensive about where we are that's for sure :-(
