Mushrooms, bugs and candy
Yesterday after Jacob got home from school we all decided to go to the park for some family time. What a mistake - haha. Should have stayed home and frittered away my time on the computer.
I did see some kinda gross mushrooms growing out of a tree. No, I didn't take any home to smoke or eat.
The park also has a large playground made out of old tires. So while I was sitting on a swing watching Jacob climb the big ship tire sculpture, I noticed my ankle was itchy.
And then I see all thes little dots on my sock and they're moving and bunches of them are on my ankle. Uggh. I tell DH and he in his wisdom says "that's just dirt". I'm like yeah right. So of course I take some pics. And then start plucking them off. I took the sock off and turned it inside out. There are no trashcans at this park - to encourage people to take out what you brought in. So I didn't want to litter my buggy sock. I took it home and washed it with some dog flea shampoo. No need to throw away a perfectly good sock. (and even with my old socks, I don't throw them away - I put them in the textile recycling bin at the recycling center).
DH says the reason the bugs got me and not him or Jacob was because I walk too slow (so the bugs had time to jump aboard). So that was our nice family outing.
I went back to Walgreens this week (I went 3 days this week). Funny how they had a cart full of that clearance laundry detergent one day, and I go in the next day and it's all gone. They also marked down some back to school supplies - I got a super cute little book light for .74. I went back the following day for more and they were all gone.
I noticed they had Russell Stover candy on clearance for $2.59 and I had $2 coupons so one day I went and bought 3 (so they were .59 a box plus tax). Then I went home and found a few more coupons so I went back the following day and got the last 2, for a total of 5. Here's a pic I took when I just found the first 3 and meant to do a blog posting that day but didn't.
