Yesterday was a busy day! I am sure that I can find something to have a Tantrum about today, there is always something on my mind! I think I will talk about School Supplies! Yes, those wonderful symbols of fall and the start of the School Year. As the mother of two school age children I already have MANY items ‘in stock’ that will be used for supplies, however, there are always a few things that need to be gotten.
My Tantrum come in when we go to our local store and there is a list of school supplies that has been printed out for our school and I purchase all the items on the list. I am a good mom, I usually get ALL the things (even if this means shopping all around town for that ONE color of folder that no one has) and maybe even a couple of the extra items.
BUT THEN….. we get to school and there is not only a NEW list, but a completely different list! The two days of hunting and searching for that special folder has gone to waste because the TEACHERS list doesn’t even have it!
So, what to do? Run around and return everything? Just keep everything (more to store)? Give the items to the school? Give the items to someone who might need them? I usually do one of the last two. It is just to much to waste the gas to return that folder that only cost $0.79 to begin with.
Any of you have school age kids? I know that most of you do. What do you do about the SCHOOL LIST? Is is one of those races to gather everything once the TEACHER LIST is brought home a week into school? Is there a secret I just haven’t found yet?
Today there will NOT be a new listing, sorry, I was just to busy to get photos done yesterday!!

Life is short, today you should savor every moment!! ~KM
