So what brought you here? The title of the post? Sounds like a joke about to go bad? Ha Ha! The unfortunate truth is that our weekend was not that interesting! I'm just posting, to post.
Wednesday I missed a doctors appt because Travis didn't get come home on time. So to curb my anger he took me to Kohls to get new towels. I know it is silly to get excited about new linen, but this is the first time in 8 years we've gotten new towels. :-) Then we went to Wal-mart and I just happen to throw in new dish towels, pot holders, an oven glove and kitchen rug and sheets. He promised me when we sell the house I could go a little crazy. The kitchen items we did need because all of ours either had paint, spackle, and/or caulking on them from working on our Minot house.
Thursday we got our first shipment in of frozen meat, vegetables, processed foods (chicken nuggets, patties, breaded shrimp, fish sticks, etc...) and some canned food. We paid for a year supply. So our second shipment will come in 6 months. We got a 7cubic foot freezer out of the deal. So our 6month supply filled that freezer plus our 3.5 cubic foot freezer. THATS ALOT OF MEAT! The chickens and cows are grown on Amish farms and are grain fed, no hormones or additives. They are plucked/killed/butchered and packaged on the farms. In other words, good quality food. We are trying to cut down the amount of meat we consume, so we're hoping this first shipment will last us a year. We'll see!
Travis had his last final Thursday night for this quarter. So he was happy about that.
Friday was spent looking at bikes and tents. I'm sure we were busy otherwise. Its funny how your whole day can be consumed by shopping. I ended up getting a bike at Wal-mart. It was a good deal. Why do we shop anywhere else? We always end up at Wal-mart because they really do have the best deals! We went to Buffalo Wild Wings for dinner. At 9:30pm we hit the drive-in to watch UP. The kiddos liked it and we only paid $15. We would've stayed for the next movie, but they needed to go to bed. Travis got pulled over on the way home, but like always, he talked his way out it. Honestly, how will he ever learn if he doesn't get a ticket!
Saturday morning Travis was up early to help someone move. He then took the older two to a gun show. He was determined to get a shotgun. The gun show was waste. He came home with two flashlights for the kids and a knife for the van. He was pretty discouraged. We went to base to get a bike trailer for the kids then to Dicks for the gun he liked. He got to Dicks and someone told him Wal-mart also sold guns. The gun at Dicks was $100 more than the same one at Wal-mart! So guess where we went :-) He got a Mossberg 12 gauge. He's excited about it.
Sunday we went to the Thompsons for a BBQ. We're lucky to have them nearby, otherwise we'd be social outcasts :-)
Backpack had a Dr. last week. He weighed in at a whooping 17lbs. The doctor gave me the okay to give him one Pediasure a day to pack on a few pounds. He just isn't fond of formula but he nurses okay. He loves food. He's our best eater! He usually just eats what we are. He's been a lot happier now that he's crawling around and eating more. We think he really doesn't like being a helpless baby!
