Signs of Spring Break

You know it is Spring Break and the kiddies are out of school when the grocery bill at least doubles. The dirty laundry multiplies, as if it were mating overnight. This year's break is sprinkled with something new....prom dress shopping! Did that last Saturday and just a bit the Saturday before. I have already completed my preparations for supper, chopping, etc. so off we go again! The challenge: sifting through dresses that either cost too much and or were made for a stripper to zero in on a one that is certain color, certain neckline, certain material, certain backline........certain challenge! She doesn't want blue, black, red, white, plunging neckline, bare backed, netting which makes any "poofiness" to skirt, "does my stomach look big?" Wow, hon, looks like you swallowed a grape - maybe...........where's my magic wand? Wish I could twitch my nose like Samantha on "Bewitched"!

  4. LOLOLOL! I think our grocery bill has tripled this week. The price we pay for NOT going on vacation. We started our spring break off with both of our 16yr olds having wrecks in their cars! Thank God it was not their fault. Joy!

  6. Doesn't sound like much fun. But the bonding time is worth it. At least she still wants you involved in the shopping.
