Oh...I despise this time of year. We still have a few weeks of summer left but back to school shopping must begin. I refuse to wait till the last minute again. Only to not find clothes or shoes in the kiddos' sizes. I wish they would stay home all the time but thankfully they look forward to going back and seeing all their friends :) I just love having them at home and it breaks my heart every time to see them go. But enough of my blubbering. In preparation for my BTS shopping, I'm taking inventory of my school supply stash. I don't want to buy anything we don't need. I'm also clipping coupons as I can get pens, crayons and colored pencils for free or next to nothing. I'm also putting aside a little cash to have on hand for the first month or two of school. The school has t shirt sales, fundraisers and school pictures all within the first month. I'm hoping to be better prepared this year.
To alleviate my BTS blues, I'm going to be going to the ANTIQUES ROADSHOW!! Yay!! I applied for tickets and was lucky enough to receive two. My brother and I are going and Mr. Man is watching the kiddos. I would have loved to go with him but my Mom is going to have a full house the same weekend. Hence, no sitter. I am so excited but also a bit nervous. I'm weird like that. I'm not exactly sure what to take but it should not be too hard as we can only take two items each. I'm guessing I'll be one of those folks laughing at the end of the show about how my items are only worth a couple of dollars. We will see....wish me luck :)
