44 Pounds

Well, considering that my scale has decided that I weigh 44 pounds, if it weighs me at all, I decided it was time for a new one. I believe my beloved scale has suffered a few too many slammings, kicks and abusive drops; some by me ;) most by the kiddos. I bought the cheapest none digital scale I could find and maybe I'll ask for a better one as a present in the future.

I went shopping yesterday with the clan as my wife started with meetings before the school year. We ended up at Target and with 4 kids ganging up on one Daddy, it's hard to say no to everything. I stayed strong however and managed to make it home with little damage. No toys, no Webkinz, no junky $1 stuff! We settled on some Target brand Push-Ups, which they enjoyed on the way home.

We finished up our school shopping, which actually looks more like a cleaning supply list with 8 rolls of paper towels, 4 packs of disinfective wipes, antibacterial handwash, napkins, cups, bowls, tissues, etc. Of course, there are the real "school" supplies too, but its these extra supplies that really add the $$$ total up.

I did try the chocolate covered bacon on a stick and will write a bit on it when I get the pictures up on my computer.

I can't even imagine taking the whole clan to Target of all places! They have so many things for young and old that are hard to pass by! This list of things for the classroom must be universal. Both my daughters have to buy similar items for the kid's classrooms.

Ewwwww! Chocolate covered bacon? Okay, that's pushing it to the limit where chocolate-covered anything goes. At least for me that is. :)
