Bleaching my hair didn’t work so well the other day so I immediately dyed it red. Red is my go-to color. I’m pleased with how it turned out.
This was the kids’ first week of school. Getting to know new teachers is going to take time, but they’ve done OK so far. Many of my older son’s friends have moved or switched schools this year, so he’s spending a lot of time Skype’ing them. What a neat invention that is.
I managed to stay under my grocery budget by enough that I think we’ll be under this whole pay period. Usually there’s a second, smaller shopping trip to do later, but I should still come out OK. That’s encouraging. I’ve been spending again lately. Small stuff mostly. I went a little crazy after school supply shopping. It’s time to rein that in now. My mother-in-law bought some fall clothes for the kids and I will fill in at the thrift store. The boys are growing like weeds; I bought what I thought were the next size up pants for my older boy and they ended up fitting him perfectly. Good grief!
