Gas, Sleep, and CVS



Reed had a great day yesterday and a great day today. The only problem is we were so sleepy I fell asleep with him.



I know that Super Nanny is against laying down with your kids and Tamara and Brandon offered advice on how we could get Reed to go to sleep. I did blame it on Abbey, but I must confess, I value my time with Reed and since I have to work all day, getting him to sleep is just a few more minutes that I have with him.



My Jeep was low on gas this morning, but it was too early for me to stop and get gas at Kroger. The price was 3.33 (which would have been 3.30 with my Kroger card).



When I got home from work, it was 3.99! How in the world did the price of gas rise .66 cents!?!?! in only a few hours?



THANK GOODNESS FOR MY CARPOOL! The only problem is that next week is my turn to drive!



Tonight, Danny and Megan came over for burgers. It was good to see them, because have not had a chance to hang out in a week or so.



Reed was hilarious! We were sitting in the living room and Reed decided that he would run and dance. We would sing a song and he would just dance and dance. Then we would say, "Run, run, run!" and he would take off!



He is such a happy and funny little boy! We are so blessed!



Don't forget to pray for the people in the path of IKE! That is such a horrible storm!

So it was a loss on ECBs today, but I bought things that I needed like Candy for coworkers, diapers for Reed, and Shout for Reed and Me (Abbey doesn’t get stains on her clothes! But the key is, that I still was able to buy things that we really needed and leave enough ECBs in my cache that I can continue to shop! You don’t always have to get ECBs to get good deals at CVS.
