This whole thing is a terrible trap for the parents, and is a very good reason to try to find a baby-sitter to take care of the kids while the parents go do the shopping.
Michelle and I are planning a special weekend together. First of all, we’re going to build a Scare Crow to put in the front yard. With it I have a bail of straw that we’ll stick him into and put a beautiful mum on each side of him. Mamaw grew some pumpkins in her garden so we’ll get a couple of them and put them in front of the bale of straw.
IF there are leaves falling, we’ll collect them and make a book of all the different leaves we find. As more fall, we’ll keep collecting ones we don’t already have and colors of each we don’t have. Then we’ll look up each type of leaf and label them so we can learn what the different trees are in our yard. There’s a lot to learn about the different trees like which ones give off acorns or other types of nuts and seeds.
Halloween will be here before you know it so Michelle and I are going to take an old white sheet I have and make little ghosts to put in the dogwood tree when it gets closer to Halloween. I don’t like putting out a bunch of ‘scary’ stuff but little ghosts aren’t what I call scary. Anyway, we’re going to have a fun and relaxing weekend together, at home, next weekend. Hope you have a good one too.
My sister wants me to try this deodorant she just started using. I’ve told her repeatedly that I hate using something that is not also an antiperspirant! I hate to sweat! She gave me a container of the brand she is using, and told me that it is all natural. I understand that she likes things to be all-natural, and I’m fine with that, but if it doesn’t stop me from sweating, I don’t want to use it! I don’t know how else to explain it to her. What would you do?
I have turned into somewhat of a coupon queen. You have to do what ever it takes to make ends meet when you’re a single Mom on a limited income, you know what I mean. Every Sunday I get the paper for the coupons but I also check online anytime I plan on going shopping either for food or whatever. I love the online coupon sites. You can check each individual store from some sites and you can go to certain stores and they’ll allow you to print out coupons right from their web site. The best sites are the ones that offer discounts to several stores right on their web site.
