Happy Memorial Day
Had a pretty relaxing Memorial Day weekend. I took the above pic last summer while out on a boat. I wanted to post a different one but I can't find it easily - it's somewhere temporarily lost on a disk amongst my clutter.
School here is getting out the week after next (has a year gone by already???) So that means I better get my thrift store shopping fix in in the next week. My son doesn't like to go thrift store shopping so I take a break during the summer. (But sometimes I manage to sneak in a quick look every once in a while). I am happy that last week I found some end-of-school-year teacher gifts. I was starting to stress on what to give (1 teacher, 3 assistants, 1 speech therapist and 1 occupational therapist). My son had the same teachers as last year and I didn't want to give a duplicate gift (last year gave little gift bag of small items: B&BW hand sanitizer, pen set and something else I forgot). At Staples (on the clearance table) they had these cute turquoise photo boxes with notecards inside for $3 each. So I got six ($18) but then, of course I used three of my $3 Staples coupons and saved $9. So the total came to $9 plus tax. Here's a pic of one:
My husband is going to Los Angeles within the next few weeks. For a job interview. OMG is all I can say. I can't imagine trying to move all my junk. He thinks a new job may make him happy. Unless the job involves getting paid a ton of money to play golf all morning and watch movies in the afternoon, I don't think a job is going to make him happy. So....needless to say, I don't want to move to California. It's just not having to move my junk, I would seriously miss the two awesome thrifts that I live near.
