Staying Home vs. Going Out

Tonight my kids and I were thinking about what to do and the prospect of going out to a local arcade/pizza place was raised.

I will not say which family member suggested this, but it quickly became clear that my cooking lately has been in question and that a pizza would be a nice change from the usual routine.

I was fine with that (I suppose) but then I asked about how long it would take before we could arrive, eat, play some games, and come back home. Ultimately, we determined that the wasted time was just not worth it!

All the time getting ready, getting into the car, and waiting for the service is not better than staying home and watching the good ol' TV with family. We had frozen pizza in the freezer, and we watched 'Frozen' on DVD. Not a bad evening in the house.
