WOO, I am tired. I spent the day getting the last minute stuff for my kids to start back to stuff and it gets expensive. Started off early with a trip to target to look for a backpack for my son, but did not find one he liked. Next, we went to Kohl's and was able to get my son a T-shirt and my daughter a pair of capris and a top for 30 bucks, not bad since the capris were originally 50 dollars. The last thing we had to do was get the kids shoes. My son officially has ski’s for feet. I took him to the shoe store today and he is now in a men’s size 13 shoe. Thought I was going to get a good deal at the shoe store with a buy one get one 1/2 off deal but ended up spending a ton because I misread the signs and with my daughter on the verge of a meltdown, I was not about to push the envelope. Finally found my son a back pack 34.00 for one that will fit him, that is crazy. Granted it says lifetime warranty but still that is ridiculous. Then a final stop at Chik-Fil-A, it was 10:30 and the line was around the building. All in all a good day but I am glad it is done, because I am officially broke. I can’t imagine having more than 2 in school you would have to sell your possessions to pay for all the stuff they need.
I was in the grocery store last night looking for something good to make for supper because you know you get tired of the same old thing over and over again, and I saw this deli pack of Oscar Meyer Salami and Ham sub kit (not getting paid by Oscar Meyer, this is personal opinion) . I thought it sounded good so I decided to make a sub for dinner, then we get to the produce section and my husband decided he wanted to make some guacamole and we just put the two together and this is what we come up with. This would make an awesome school lunch for an older child, just make the guacamole non spicy!
