Cheese Whiz is my gourmet cheese now and I really could use a couple bottles of wine!
These days, I will take the youngest, but not so young anymore, kid to the store with me. Sometimes our conversations are like this:
"Can . . ."
"But . . ."
"Mom . . ."
Lately, I've been quicker on the draw, and now it goes like this:
"C . . . "
"B . . ."
"M . . ."
Now it's getting funner to grocery shop, try it yourself, see how fast you can say "no" when they start to ask for something. (I'm serious, it's really funny, you've got to try it!)
I mentioned earlier about my boys and their delivering of phone books to earn money. One of my boys, put his phone book money together with some xmas money, and had enough to purchase a brand new larger screen HDTV for his Xbox. This TV costs $495., so far so good. But when both mafia-like taxes and that stupid lets-look-like-we-are-doing-something environment fee are added, this $495 TV is now costing $595. That's an addition of 100 &%#&%#@ dollars!
