I need a Stimulus Package.

Tuesday, August 11, 2009

Last night I finally took the kids to get school supplies.

Now that I will have both kids in school - Taylor is starting Kindergarten (cue the waterworks) - I have to buy double everything. Backpacks, lunch packs, supplies, clothes... UGH!

Although we have a Tax-Free weekend, in San Antonio, they didn't schedule it until the Saturday before school starts. Please tell me why? If I waited until then, everything would be gone and I would be completely stressed.

So my main question is, why is there no Stimulus Package for Back-To-School shopping? That makes way more sense than Cash For Clunkers, does it not?

I'm in. This is Maile's first year of Kindegarten and I'm kind of freaking out too. How much stuff does she need? Who's going to give me money for it??

Good grief.

Yes. Yes it does!

I thought tax free weekend was this weekend. So you have an extra weekend before school starts.

It's ironic that you posted this today because about 5 women at work today had a 30 minute discussion about this very thing...........we don't have kids yet, but I'm already haunted by the money we'll drop for back to school!

Crazy!

Wow! First day of school! don't you wish there was a one-way window for moms and dads and that they would let you just stay as long as you like and watch? I always wanted one of those when our 3 were growing up!

Blessings & Aloha!

Pretty much everything makes way more sense that Cash for Clunkers.

I’m Stephanie - wife to one extremely handsome cop; mother to two extremely silly kids. The hubs and I have been married since February ’99. I love him more each day and simply can’t get enough of him. My daughter, Ashton, is 12 going on 17. She’s beautiful, creative, smart, and oh, so sassy. Taylor, our son, is 8 and is so much like his daddy it’s scary. He makes me laugh all the time with the silly things he says and does. He won’t remember what you told him 5 minutes from now, just like his daddy. I love to laugh and spend time with friends and family. I’ve also recently discovered a love for cooking and enjoy sharing recipes. I love finding new blog friends, so be sure to leave a comment so I can do the same!
