This was supposed to be a representation of fireworks. Sometimes things just don’t work out – ha ha. At least the colors are patriotic.
Otherwise I’m finally getting a little crafting juice flowing again…I have a couple ideas to try out and I can’t wait! It has been too long since I’ve done anything.
I’m also still sad about Rusty. Today is the first day I haven’t cried about that darn dog. It is strange being in the house without him…and sometimes it is strange in a good way. I had a bag of garbage ready to go out and it didn’t get torn into! There is nobody staring at me incessantly at 9:00 at night ready for his biscuit…Rusty had a built-in alarm clock. Then I’ll feel guilty for enjoying the change…argh!!!!!!
Today we took Abby to camp for another session. She was soooo excited! Before we dropped her off we did a little shopping for school clothes. Have you ever been to Savers? They are a giant thrift store. They are a bit more expensive than the usual thrift stores I shop at but they have many more “brand-name” items. Abby actually got a little excited about shopping! She showed enthusiasm when I’d pull something out for her to try on – yippeeeee! We came home with 11 t-shirts, 7 sweatshirts (maybe a couple more I can’t remember), 3 pair of pants, 1 pair of shoes, and some random kitchen accessories and spent $123.00. At the checkout I learned that if I had brought a bag of stuff to donate I would have gotten 20% off my entire purchase!!! That was painful to hear! I will be soooo prepared next time. I really couldn’t care less what the label on a t-shirt says, but my older son cares. So I said “fine – you can have the brand-name stuff but it will be on my terms”…and he was totally OK with this arrangement. Happiness all around.
