Tired from shopping
Friday, August 10, 2018
Today I went to pick up items for my youngest boy from adoption agency. It is kind of sad when you compare their 'Back to School' events we attended previously to the come pick-up items they have now. They use to have an event that was from 10 to about 3 where the whole family came and had lots of food, games and prizes with face painting, balloon animals and crafts going on. Each family was given a bag full of school items based on school grade for each child. It was nice to get a chance to talk to other adoptive families and to the adoption workers. They just don't get the donations the last few years that they previously had. Still it is nice to go and receive items for the boys.
After going there, I did some more shopping to take advantage of the tax free weekend. I was able to order a clear backpack from Office Depot and I paid to get the replacement deal as I am not sure how long the backpack will last. My older son had to use one part of one year in middle school but they changed the requirement mid-year. my older son almost never has anything tear-up and it was a complete wreak from other kids poking holes in them from behind as kids walked to class. I then went to Wal-Mart for notebooks and a few other school item plus a few cloths items. By the time I got home it was past lunch time but I wasn't very hungry so relaxed and then had some popcorn while watched a little TV. I'm a little sore plus still tired. Probably go to bed before long.
Have a good night and enjoy your weekend.
