Well it's been a busy week trying to get back into our routine. We got back from the beach and I have to admit I was spoiled not having to cook for a while. We stayed with my husband's family so we didn't go out to eat every meal but we certainly went out much more than usual. While I wouldn't exactly call it a "vacation" it was still a very nice break from our typical routine!
I have spent the past few days trying to wash all the clothes and get rid of all the sand. I loved the responses you guys left me last week. I agree that sand is part of the fun but boy it's amazing how much of it sticks everywhere. I think I'd probably get used to it if I dealt with it more often. For now, my goal is to try to get rid of it as it's still everywhere. I think having two little messy boys doesn't help the situation. I can't tell you how many shells I have dug out of pockets. I think maybe they were trying to bring their sandcastles home with them 😉
We had hoped to have a little get together for the Fourth of July and enjoy some time by the pool. I am not sure how much time will be spent outside with the weather being so dreary. I might have to come up with indoor ideas now. A Fourth of July movie night just doesn't sound quite as fun. But...we'll come up with something and maybe we can sneak out here and there for some pool time?!
Hopefully you guys are able to enjoy the holiday weekend too. Maybe the rain will hold off and we can all enjoy some fun in the sun. Here's hoping the fireworks shows aren't cancelled and there are lots of celebrations! Have a fun and safe Fourth of July!
As for my shopping this week...I did OK. Some of the items will be coming from my entertainment budget for the party but I also stocked up on some good deals like the Birds Eye veggies and had to get some necessities (milk, eggs, cheese, veggies and fruit). I am just estimating this week because honestly I don't feel like breaking out the calculator right now. My family is here and I will have time to be all geeky with my Quickbooks entries later. I am going to estimate $75 for my weekly grocery expenditure this week. A little high but since I didn't really shop last week since we were out of town hopefully it will even out!
