When school starts back our weekends become so precious. We are always so busy during the week, it is nice to try (and I say try) to keep our weekends free. We don't always succeed but this was one of those weekends.
Friday night, we went to eat pizza and we tried to watch a movie. We both fell asleep.
Saturday, we headed out for garage sales. Jim never goes but he decided to ride along this time.
Usually if Jim is riding along, I don't really find anything. So I had a typical day with Jim tagging along. I only spent about $15 but there is always next week. Here are some of the things we bought.
We made out way toward Greenville, so we could hit Old Navy for the $12 jeans sale. We got there about 11:30am and all the kids' jeans were gone. Thank goodness I found the 3 pair for Zane at the yard sale. But I bought 2 pair and Jim bought a pair. I had a $10 gift card so we ended up with 3 pair of jeans for $26.
Then we ate at one of favorites, Taco Casa. Then we headed out to look at used cars. We are trying to buy a smaller car that just me and the kids can drive during the week. Gas is killing us in our SUV. So we did find a couple that we liked and we will probably go back later and look again.
Finally we headed home and this is what we did for supper.
We roasted hot dogs and marshmallows.
So our weekend was pretty uneventful but that is always a welcome change around here.
Tomorrow Jack will be going in the hospital to have his tonsils taken out. Please keep him in your prayers. He has been really sick for about 2 years and the last month has been really rough. We finally got to see the ENT and his tonsils are so bad he didn't want to wait so we are headed in tomorrow at 7:15. He does have to spend one night in the hospital. He was a real trooper today for the blood work (she stuck him several times to try to get the vein). Anyway, I'll be back Wednesday to let you know how things went. Thanks for all your prayers.
