School Daze

I HATE SHOPPING!

OK, I feel much better now. I purchased all of the school supplies that were not already in the cupboard...next year I will hate myself for not getting extra, but I was in and out of that store in 15 minutes! Yes, straight to the "back to school" area then back to stationary supplies because hello index cards for a 1st grader??? AND, someone want to explain the 12 glue sticks...not just glue sticks but WHITE! Elmer's I hate you! All of the Elmer's glue sticks are the disappearing purple so I had to head back to stationary to buy Rose Art (or whatever) which were like a $1 more expensive....wait did I just complain about a dollar???? Whatever, I had to buy 3 pkgs so that is like $3, which means the cost of a happy meal.......if I have to bust out and cook at home, I swear LOL

School clothes...not purchased. He doesn't have uniforms this year, so I am hoping that he can just hang on for the first month or 2 and then we can go get some new clothes. (I would really like him to hang on till Christmas and let Santa take care of it, but prob won't happen...hehehe)

I left my retail job almost two years ago and I still cringe when back to school (or as we called it, BTS) rolls around. BTS shopping can really bring out the worst in people!

OMG...you would have thought I picked up the last pointed scissors in the place. This mother FREAKED out at me, so I calmly kneeled down to one of the THREE boxes full of scissors...dug in and handed her a pointed one. Smiled and walked away. 15 minutes girl...in and out!!! Those people only get crazier as the holidays approach!!!!!!! :)
