It's a refreshing day today since I got to sleep in. I woke up at about 9:30 and got a full night's sleep which was really nice. Tim is off today and tomorrow and I'm so happy he's able to be home with us. The kids go back to school on Tuesday and Thursday is our 16th anniversary, can't believe I've been married to him for 16 years already.
I got all the laundry done yesterday, completely caught up for now but that won't last long. I'm going to go grocery shopping and take a few of the kids with me so Tim doesn't have to have all nine to worry about while I'm gone. He told me to go ahead and get everything we need so I guess I'll be spending quite a bit at the store, I'll be going to Walmart and Sam's Club and then going to go to Staples to get the very last few things for back to school and our back to school shopping will be done. I got most of it done a few weeks ago but just have a few extra things to get. I'll probably wind up taking Emily, Nick, Cody and Aubrey with me shopping, Emily will help me with her siblings so it won't be a bother to take them. She likes taking a cart and I give her part of the list, she goes and gets everything on the list and meets me in the store, which helps me out a lot.
I have had a good morning and getting the shopping list done so I can get everything. We'll probably cook out later on having hamburgs, chicken and hot dogs. I'll need to pick up some charcoal too.
Hope you ladies are having a great Saturday.
Your shopping adventure wears me out just thinking about it, though. Walmart makes me cranky in general. Maybe you have one without an insane parking lot and people who shop there that are nice. Here? Pfft, it's like roller derby with carts and cars.
It's always a hassle, I go on Saturday's to do the major shopping and pick up things here and there during the week if I need them. I like going in the morning because it's usually less crowded but we didn't get there in the morning today. It was crowded but not too crowded and Emily did a great job with the list I gave her, it helped me out a lot and got us out of the store quicker.
We have a few Walmart's in the area and I've been to all of them because I wanted to see which one was less crowded, there is one closer to where we live but it's always too crowded so I go to one a little further away and that one isn't as crowded. I usually get a parking spot in the front of this store or at the farthest the middle. I think Walmart's are crazy in general lol.
