I am opting to relax and skip the craziness! I am more of a Cyber Monday kind of gal. I prefer to shop from my pajamas and skip the crowds.
We are actually hanging out with my husband's family for a few more days and then will head back home. Once we get back I may not eat for a week...let's just say that I am going to have to cut back my food intake big time or my pants are not going to fit!
Besides the holiday fun, we had a little excitement early in the week. My oldest kiddo got braces! He has done great and is slowly getting used to them. Poor guy had to get them on the week of the best food.
Did I mention that all THREE of my guys are getting braces? Yep, Jake is the first one and Jim and Jeb will follow over the next couple of months! I expected that the boys would need braces so we started a fund a while back to cover them. But I never thought that my husband would get them too. He had them when he was young and it seems his teeth have shifted big time. Now his bite is off and his upper teeth are hitting the lower ones and chipping them. The only solution is braces to fix his bite. I suppose it's a much better option than having to fix broken teeth!
Our dental budget is getting hit BIG time. I'll shift money a bit to help with the costs but it will definitely take a while to get it where it needs to be!
Speaking of budgets...my clothing budget is also getting hit hard. I am guessing BOTH boys hit a growth spurt or something as I had to go out and buy a bunch of colder weather clothes for them. They tried on the clothes in their closet and absolutely nothing fit. I also had to get both guys new sneakers! They have already outgrown the shoes I got them at the beginning of the school year—you know four months ago...in August! They are getting big FAST!
Ok...well I suppose that I will wrap up for the day. Dinner is next and then everyone here is gearing up for the Iron Bowl tomorrow. No shopping for me this week since we aren't home. I'll get back on track at some point next week.
