Well, it has been an interesting week, to be sure. My 8 year old’s comment on the Federal Shutdown: “Do they even REALIZE what they are doing to the American people?!” Can I get an ‘Amen?’
So, with questions about when my husband will be paid, and for which days, we did the following this week:
- Daughter brought home the catalog for the Scholastic book sale at school. Had her mark some titles she was interested in and I requested them from the library. When I wish to do something charitable for the school I prefer to make a tax-deductible donation rather than participate in a fundraiser. The books should be in at the library even before the sale starts.
- Husband used his furlough day to get a free haircut at a new SportClips place in our neighborhood. He had a good experience and liked the cut as much or better than his usual higher-priced stylist.
- Kid birthday party this weekend… I tapped my reserve of American Girl gifts I bought at the crazy American Girl Warehouse sale.
- We are entertaining during an NFL (football) game tomorrow, and I worked out a menu that takes advantage of some ingredients we already have on hand. I am planning a quesadilla bar, Pioneer Woman’s restaurant-style salsa, and a Halloween-ish cake.
Other than that, we are relaxing at home – economical too!
How was your week?
