Welcome to a day in my life. I can't guarantee that this will be an exciting read for anyone. My life is filled with all the mundane activities of a stay-at-home-mom just trying to raise her three sons to be the best men they can be.

It's the most wonderful time of the year!

It's Back-to-school time! Last night I went out to Staples with the supply lists in hand from the school.
Here's what we had to buy:
3 rulers
packages of blue, black and red pens
packages of pencils (guess who has to sharpen them!)
3 pkgs of pencil crayons (I was smart and bought ones already sharpened!)
glue sticks
3 white out tape
pkgs of lined, blank, and graph paper
2 calculators (we were fortunately able to locate one from last year)
3 combination locks
2 scissors
2 geometry sets
3 pencil cases
11 binders
8 duotangs
pks of page dividers
1 personal dictionary
2 backpacks

Grand total of $200 for 3 boys

I still need to buy 3 boxes of Klenex (yes, that's right, Klenex)
washable fine tipped black markers
Magic Markers (gotta first figure out what the heck these are!)
4 tennis balls (I beleive these are for the legs of the chairs so they don't scrape on the floor

And then there's new shoes and clothes that I haven't even thought about buying yet!


  1. Hey Barb! Magic Markers are like Sharpies...and YES! It IS the most wonderful time of the year!!!

  2. Wow! So much to buy, so little time!

  3. Hi, I was just wandering the blogosphere and here I am at your blog. I enjoy the style of how this all works.

    This is one to watch.
