Today’s shopping trip was another chaotic & rushed affair. This week has been a little crazy (more about that later!) and this morning I realized that I had completely forgotten a commitment that had to be completed asap. Needless to say, making my shopping list and gathering my coupons got pushed to the bottom of the priority list, which meant another week of winging it at the store.
I seriously need to pull my act together!
Oh here I go, whining again, after I promised not to for a long long time. Sorry. In any case, it was still a pretty good trip and I even remembered to get diapers and pull-ups, two things that had reached critical-need level in this house. One of these days I’ll get around to potty training….but it’s not going to be this week!
So do you want to know why I’ve been so busy this week?
You’ll have to read my big announcement here.
