my new favorite store

alright so Target is not my new favorite love of Target is well documented. My love of the reusable shopping bag also well documented....and so thank you Target for the 5 cent credit for each and every reusable bag I bring in! You guys totally rock and I love that you have started to do this. My love of the 5 cent credit also documented. A gesture that in the long run costs the company nothing I sure they save so much more by my not taking a plastic bag this is good PR folks and I am glad one of the places I frequent has jumped on the band wagon.
Kroger are you listening?

as much as I complain about not having enough time at home

why is it I am about to climb the walls this being only day 2 at home? tomorrow will be day 3 because yes I have strep throat. Of course I do.. I have a million things to do before Sunday's annual Memorial Day Meatfest celebration and an unknown number of folks gathering to attend and I have strep throat.
and this was the year I was going to have everything shopped and prepped before the weekend so I would not have to run around the day before like a chicken with my head cut off...ah well not so much this year maybe next?

just how appreciative do I need to be?

got an email from he classroom mom about a pizza lunch for the kids and while she was not going to collect money for a year end gift for the teacher we were free to purchase something individually for her....
Don't get me wrong I appreciate the hell out all teachers period end of story. I come from a family of teachers I am all to well aware of how much blood, sweat and tears as well as cash out of their own pockets goes into teaching. This year, as in years past I have happily contributed my fair share of hand sanitizer, clorox wipes, tissues, pencils anything she has asked for as far as classroom supplies, I have contributed to her birthday gift, Christmas gift, got her chocolate for Valentines Days and supplied a weeks worth of gifts for teacher appreciation week. I was also on the PTA hospitality committee donating food items throughout the year for special days and special treats for the staff. I am tapped out, done, exhausted sorry I do so very much appreciate you I truly do but at this point in the school year I am drawing a line in the sand......till August I'll be more than happy to start donating to the cause by then!
