I have lots of different things floating around in my head to post but I only have pictures of the stuff I bought while junkin this week. I hadn’t planned on sharing since they were just quick snaps with my phone. No actual thought or effort put into it (story of my life) but I have them. And they’re loaded. So that’s what you get.
First, lemme just say junkin without the boy is nice. Hooray for preschool!
I did buy him a shirt though and he’s wearing it today.
And Layla got some paints…which she prolly wont wear because she wont wear anything I buy her…
I got some super soft shirts for $1.
And this one that I paid full. price. for. I think it was $3.
I bought a cookbook too…so I can put it up on the shelf with all my others. I never actually use them. Maybe I’ll try harder…add it to my goal list.
And this basket. Im a sucker for baskets.
Now today, since T is golfing for the third time this week, I’m headed back to the TJ Maxx that just opened here in Enterprise. It’s so pretty…everything is so new and right where it belongs. It hasn’t been open long enough to turn ghetto. All the shoes are perfectly lined up on their correct shelf. Nothing it stuffed where it shouldn’t be stuffed in the home section. It’s glorious. But more on that later…
Me and the kids anyway. It has to be allergies/weather changing…something. Within a day all 3 of us are totally stuffy, hacky, headachy, awful. It’s fantastic. It was all I could do to get through one episode of Big Love after kids went to bed last night before my cold/allergy med cocktail kicked in.
It was a late bed time last night though. I took the kids downtown to join some derby girls at the tent we had for our town’s 4th Friday. They block off the main street down town and have music and tents with food and stuff. It was pretty empty last night but I see how when the heat isn’t crazy it has potential to be a better time.
The kids had a blast either way though. Especially when we walked through the drive through ATM to get cash for slushes.
We decided this time instead of just trying to hand out fliers and sell stuff we would do face painting as well. It was a pretty big hit!
Before the sun went down the kids were a little restless grumpy sitting under the tent. I let them wonder off a bit which included giving them ‘wishes’ to throw in the fountain.
Then the sun went down. It went from miserable to just hot.
But we got our cash and our slushes and felt much better.
That’s when the real fun started…someone brought out the bubbles!
Oh, and L got her face painted too.
A creepy dog haha
This Alabama derby family is really growing on me
oh! In other news. We need a dishwasher. They are all the same to me and reviews are so mixed that I don’t even know what to choose. I think I find one I like and the reviews aren’t stellar. So I dunno. I’ve gone into Lowes twice now and walked out with no more idea of what I need than when I went in. It shouldn’t be that hard!
I’m ready to use the ‘close your eyes and point’ method to choose one. Oy.
Here I go again. Not ever giving my blog any attention. It’s all going back to the ‘I have a million things to do and suck at time management so I just wont do anything.’ Blogging is on that list. I never really know what to post any more since I really dont feel like I have anything worth posting.Trying really hard to remember why I started this blog and what kept me going for so long. I know I want to document our life. I love looking back but…I’m just lazy. Thats really all it is.
So anyway, until I start using my camera again here is a quick phone dump round up.
We got a hamster named Harlow. He belonged to a friend of a friend who’s girls stopped taking care of it. He’s super tiny and pretty freaked but is getting used to us.
Timmy and I FINALLY went to story time at the library with Miss Louise. We used to go with Layla every week from the time we moved here until she started Kindergarten. It feels good and yet very different to go now with just Timmy. Mostly good.
He’s kind of a mess, this boy.
And very. very. slow.
Sometimes he takes pictures of me too.
And hey, look at this shirt I found at Walmart. So perfect.
I bought this too. The Fit Lab in Enterprise is a pretty fun place to go. They sell Herbalife shakes/products. I caved and bought some of the beverage mix and got a little sample of something to mix in. It makes a pre derby drink I like to call Hulk Juice.
That’s all I have now to share. We went junkin today so I’ll share what I found later.
