Spring must be here because spring
As we were leaving Goodwill the other day, we had some other stops to make. They were the Dollar Store, Aldi, and Walmart. One of the MYP said to me, 'why can't you be like a normal mom and go to Macy's or even Target?'. And yes, "Frugal" is my middle name.
LuLaRoe is splashed all over social media these days. I've been asked to join several on-line parties. I do think I like some of the clothes offered. However, it scares me a little to think that I could show up at convention this summer and 267 other ladies would have the same skirt on and it would look better on them then me. So I have resisted making a purchase.
Last night I made Spaghetti Carbonara II from Allrecipes.com. It was delicious once I upped the garlic by about six times and added a few other things. The pan was nearly over-flowing and son #1 asked in all seriousness, 'do you think that'll be enough?'. I thought the question was funny until there was only about 1/4 cup left after the meal was over. Teenagers...
We played a family game tonight and after it was over a big scrum started between all three of the MYP. I got out of there because I didn't think it would end well. I'd rather iron shirts than stop bleeding. Anyway, after it was all over one of the MYP just came to tell me that she's glad she has siblings. Um. Why? Well if I ever get mugged, I'll know what to do. That's making lemonade out of some lemons I guess.
So it's yard work time! Lots of edging and weeding and I need to go get flowers soon! I love that part of gardening - not the work to prepare the soil. Happy rest of the week to you!
