I am burnt out...

Too long a shopping day. Two thrift stores, two stops to look at tractors, a stop for lunch and then Wal-Mart. I wish I'd brought my camera: the two little guys were so good, and instead of having a total meltdown at Wal-Mart, they fell asleep lying together on a 20 lb. bag of cat food in Bret's cart.

Tomorrow I go shopping after Mass with my mom and Sebastian to look for a jacket for his First Holy Communion (planned for October). I do not like shopping. I order many things on line because we live in a rural area and one has to drive half an hour even to get to a Wal-Mart, but there are some things you just have to shop for in person. Like clothes for your son's First Holy Communion.

    Hope Sunday's shopping trip went well. Did you find a jacket for Sebastian?

  2. My mom took us to Brooks Bros. where we found the right jacket right away, no alterations needed. But the price just about knocked the wind out of me! She insisted upon it, and I consoled myself with the thought that maybe he will get a couple more uses from it before he outgrows it.

    I think the measure of readiness for First Holy Communion for the rest of the boys will be: Do they fit The Jacket?
