** I learned that Staples charges an astronomical amount to send a fax: $1.39 for the first page and...wait for it...$1.00 per page after that! Holy moly!! So what I really learned is that you NEVER, EVER, go to Staples if you have a 43 page contract to fax to your realtor. And did I mention that the self serve fax won't take 43 pages? You have to go to the guy behind the copy center counter to have him do it. So much for confidentiality. And get this, it takes FOR-EVER. For more than $43.39 in faxing, I expect it NOT to take more than a half hour. Seriously Staples, where's my Easy Button for that?
** Never take a toddler to Staples if you have no intention of getting a cart to shop and have to stand around for nearly 40 minutes to send a flippin fax. She will scream, run around, grab things off shelves, and punch you in the eye when you try to subdue her (or at least corral her in the copy center area).
** I learned that I am SO looking forward to fall! Today's weather was just perfect! Cool morning, sunny day that didn't get above 80 degrees, chilly night. August, with your leaving, will you please take that hot, hazy, humid weather along with you? Thankyouverymuch. If it stays like this for a few months, I will be a happy camper!!
** I think I can get organized! Or at least get to a place where I FEEL organized. And feeling organized to me is so much more important than actually being "organized". I started menu planning this week (step 1). I will buy a small, dry erase board to hang on the fridge to help keep track of the payables (I would have bought one at Staples today, but due to the bendover I got there with the fax, I couldn't justify buying something else). I will buy the calendar at Sams Club that I found that has a place to keep track of each person's activities in your family! Three simple steps is all it takes
** I've been motivated to start working with Jillian more on her vocabulary. I don't necessarily feel like she's behind, because BOY does that chica understand SO much! It's just that when we sit down to read her books, I feel like a lot of them have too many things on one page to really focus her. So I did pick up a box of letter flashcards in
I think that's quite enough for one week, don't you? Now I want to know what you learned! Head on over to Musings of a Housewife with your post, link up, and find out what everyone else learned!
