during d's action movie last night i wandered away after losing the feigning interest battle (you remember when i interrupted family movie night to rearrange the mantel) and sent away for coupons and googled free samples (one of those times i am glad i don't have an activity hour counter on my computer)
next time i sit down to do the same, i am adding giveaway scout to the mix. you saavier girls probably already know this, but there is a faster way to look for fabulous freebies and the scout is it.
let me know what you find.
you know how the night before Christmas, the stockings are hung on the chimney with care? well in the weeks leading up to back to school we have crowded the front entrance with the backpacks loaded with care. (think similar spirit of anticipation -- it might be mine)
now i'm going to go have a coffee so i am not rearranging them all eagerly again ;)
dinner out with the girls tonight for my b-day. some of the anticipation might be due to that come to think of it. (i get to wear my back to school clothes thanks to my MIL who spoils me with shopping goodness every year in celebration of my aging)
i'm thinking this end bit of summer might be a collecting of ideas time (i am finding them all over the house in my clean-up) and the time for putting them all into something fabulous might be the second, more productive week of september.
