Weekend shopping plans

Yeah we made it to the weekend.  I had to work all week for the first time in seven weeks. It is always hard to get back into the swing of things.  I need to shop for some things to round out our menu for the week and some things for the kids to take to lunch.  They normally take a sandwich, something crunchy, and some kind of fruit or veggies.  I take the same thing.  Sometimes I take leftovers if I am going to have a place to heat it up and a place to keep it cold.  Right now I am floating throughout the school system, so unless I am at my home school, then I will pack a sandwich or salad.

So here is what I am shopping for:


Trash bags
laundry detergent
sliced cheese
shredded cheese
flour tortillas
individual bags of chips
small Gatorade
small bottles of water
bag of apples
bag of some other fruit
salmon for the grill
individual bags of chips

Local Freshway;

Chicken breasts
Ground beef


sour cream
dog food

I will let you know how the shopping turns out and how much I spent.

Back to work

Why do we have to start school so early in Georgia?  I really shouldn't complain.  I had five weeks off (really seven but I worked summer school) and most jobs get none.  As my kids have gotten older, summers are a little more relaxed.  All of the older ones are working and the younger ones just like to have friends over or go on little outings.  I don't have to entertain anymore. I can work on my own projects uninterrupted. So this was a good summer.

I am only working for half of the year so that I can student teach and I am working as a full time sub.  Something different but not bad.  I try to take everything in stride which is hard for me.  I worry about stuff in the future, but I really only need to take it one day at a time.  God's got this.

I guess I am getting ready for work.  I have to leave in a bit.  Hopefully today will be interesting.
