If You Buy Your Son a Gatorade.....

Get me out of here!!! That is all I can think about today. The baby screamed and screamed and screamed and screamed and screamed all day. Psychotic. Not fun. Really not fun. Seriously not. While he screamed, and I tried unsuccessfully to keep him from screaming, Laura took the opportunity to be naughty. Very naughty. All day. With no end. One naughty thing to the next. Because she could. Doubly not fun. Bad. Yuck. Can't take it. I want to get out of here.

Jonny had basketball tonight, so I got my chance to leave. What a relief that was! Jonny forgot his gatorade on the way out, so after dropping him at the gym, I went to buy him one at Holiday. When I pulled into the parking lot, I decided I did not want to spend 5 times as much on gatorade at the gas station, so I went to the grocery store to pick him up some to drink now, and more for down the road. While at the store, I decided to pick up some milk, and bread, then eggs, and pasta, some cheese, pop, more cereal, some toilet paper, a few snacks for school, a couple loaves of everyone's favorite cinnamon bread, tomotoes, and a few other things. Before I knew it, that little bottle of gatorade now was costing $217.00! Kind of funny! But I was super excited to have gotten a power grocery shopping trip accomplished in about 25 minutes, and now have food enough for homecooked meals the rest of the week!

I got to watch the last 15 minutes of Jonny's game.....poor kid looked a little red in the face. He mentioned something about being a bit thirsty........

I thoroughly enjoyed reading your blogs. Now I decided to get into blogging myself. I posted a blog, but now I don't know how to refer it to others. Any help would be appreciated.

I loved your entry about your cleaning expedition. I only wish I could get so inspired. Actually, I was quite proud of myself for putting all the Christmas decorations away the other day-no help from the rest of the merry go round except Abe who I had to pay off to take ornaments off the tree. He earned time to go on civilization-a computer game.
