It's been a very busy week once again! I am so happy that it's finally Friday! Though, this weekend is going to be crazy busy too. Tomorrow will be quite insane as we are finally doing Jeb's birthday party.
Since his birthday is right before school starts I always wait a couple of weeks to let everything slow down a bit. That first week of school is so hectic, I couldn't imagine trying to add in a party that week too. So I find it's just easier to wait about two weeks and then have the party. Jeb is cool with it. He ends up having two special days.
Tomorrow just happens to be a little extra chaotic. You see he also happens to have a football jamboree tomorrow. So we will have to get up and get him to the games. My husband and I will have to drive separately as my older kiddo also has a birthday party to attend at noon so I will have to run him to that then rush back home to meet the guests that will be arriving for Jeb's party at 3. Never a dull moment!
But I am excited as we will have a blast with lots of friend and family here visiting this weekend.
I actually have to get going as I have some shopping to do tonight. I will not have time to do it tomorrow so I am going to do all my running tonight. The boys can hang out with my husband and I will go pick up all the last minute items that I need and then finish cleaning up a little later. Wish me luck that I'll get everything done!
I did get a little shopping done on Wednesday. With the boys in school I might be able to do a little more shopping once I grab my pictures for the Happy Report. Though I do find that it's often better for me to shop on Saturday on gas card weekends. I knew this weekend would be a little hectic so I went ahead and grabbed a few things while I was at the store.
Fresh Express x 3 = $7.5
Grapes = $3.62
Bananas = $1.65
Apples = $3.99
Broccoli - $1.39
Steak Umms x 2 = $8.49 (two $0.50/1 IP)
Steak Umm Chicken = $2.99 ($0.50/1 IP)
Treasure Cave Cheese Wedge $1.50 ($0.50/1 IP)
ICBINB = $1.20 ($0.55 IP)
Smithfield Pork x 2 = $7.98 (tw0 $2/1 IP)
Mama Lucia Meatballs = $2 ($1 IP)
I was right over $40 this week after my gas card - but I am not quite done...so we'll call this a work in progress.
