I learned a lesson this weekend.
We have a Sam's Club just a few minutes away from home so after work on Friday I decided to go and stock up on some things. I had made my list and was ready to go. My list was very short and I told hub it would not take me long. We planned on grabbing a bite to eat afterwards. Daughter #2 said she wanted to go and get a couple of things. Shockingly, Sam's wasn't crowded. I put my items in the buggy and I just went to look at a printer and Holy Cow-I couldn't see Hub! He was pushing the buggy cart but what had happened. The cart was piled high. ahem--was the look daughter #2 gave me. What turned into a couple of items-turned into $500.00 worth of stuff!! Now hub is a softy when it comes to the girls and I knew what he was thinking. Yes, #2 daughter would be leaving in two weeks to attend graduate school so just bite your lip she was just stocking up. Stocking up--she practically stocked up for an entire year--that was what I was thinking. I know in a couple of weeks I will look back and say-ahem --daughter sure did use her brains tonight! Lesson learned-when #2 daughter says a couple of things-she will purchase them-not me-no more volunteering to buy a couple of things.
I usually don;t write about the weather but our crazy weather is getting to me. Another cold weekend in my neck of the woods. Today it is raining and temp barely 50-this is unusual around her. Usually we have temps in the mid-70's by now. The long range forecast is rain and cool until Thursday-ugh! Bring me the sunshine.
Daughter #1 is beside herself. She will graduate Saturday from pharmacy school!! I am very proud of her-a long road, and she has seen it through. Seven long years of college is behind her with no breaks. However, she can only invite 5 people to the graduation ceremony--so we are giving her a little reception later that evening.
Our state testing begins tomorrow--What a way to begin a week, right?
My post has been more like-my thoughts this weekend and not what I actually did. I am blaming this on the weather--this stinky, cold, rainy weather!!!
