Domo Arigato!

Whew! What a week it has been. Between kids, my husband, my mother, work, school and girl scouts, this week has been a chart topper. Not bad, just busy. This week at school we had 3 events that spanned 4 days. Magnet Show-Offs on Tue and Wed, then Fall Production on Thurs and Fri along with dance marathon Fri as well. For those of you that don't work at a busy performing arts elementary school, that equals parents coming to the school by the masses! Parents that have to come to the office to sign in first, and always want to take their kids home after they watch the show. This also means that we in the office, don't get anything done because we're on crowd control. Luckily, even with shows galore, I was able to meet a huge deadline ahead of schedule. Unluckily, as soon as I closed the door on that deadline, another one came a knockin. October is a very busy month for the school district so don't be surprised if I don't post again until November. I will probably be sick of typing and looking at a computer screen.

Last night after dinner I decided to go to my favorite getaway, Target. I LOVE Target! The dollar bins and clearance racks delight me to no end. I spent over 2 hours, by myself just looking at everything. I'm such a bargain shopper and get excited every time a see a red reduced price tag. I found so many great deals and got some great holiday ideas for the girls.

This morning I headed out early to mail a package, but the post office was closed. Is it just me or does anyone else remember a time when the post office was open until Noon on Saturday's? Sine that plan was thwarted I headed to hell, I mean wal-mart for groceries. I was able to find a few items on sale, but not many. Damn economy, seriously! I would hate to go several different places for groceries, but I think I'm going to have to. Lowe's has the best meat prices, where Wal-mart has the best prices on fresh fruits and vegetables, and HEB has some insane combos where you buy one item and get 8 other items for free. I could give that a shot, and maybe expand our menus in the process.

This afternoon KB's friend came over. She's a very sweet little girl. Her mom is japanese and her father is malaysian. We enjoy our friendship with this family so we were all looking forward to her visit. THe girls made brownies while I started a pot of beef stew. The girls played barbies, ate popcorn and watched TV. After dinner I let them each have a brownie for dessert. H has never had beef stew before and she loved it so much she had 2 bowls!

Tonight will be quiet.... I hope. I also hope everyone enjoys what is left of the weekend. Sayonara!
