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.
