1. I went grocery shopping on Tuesday. I'm really not a fan of grocery shopping, but I managed to do it and I brought enough food that we still have lots left over. Since I did most of my shopping at BJ's warehouse club, I now have over a gallon of barbecue sauce. I guess we'll have to have lots of ribs, pulled pork and bbq chicken this summer. And so you all don't think I'm crazy, I brought three different varieties of barbecue sauce--like that makes the quantity any better.
2. I went to the library and located the book Madeline wanted to read (Ella Enchanted) and a book I've been wanting to read. So not only did I get the books we wanted, but I didn't have to buy them! Bookstores are my library of choice since I get to read a new book and I don't have to return it. The downside to that, of course, is I have to pay for my pricey habit. I think I could learn to like the public library. I don't have to buy the books and I don't have to store them when I'm done reading. I guess I can live with that arrangement.
3. Madeline is once again on the honor roll at her school. Yay! And, Ellie is doing really well with learning to read. She's picked up on a few high frequency words on her own. I'm impressed!
