I was roaming through the isles of Walmart last night and ended up in the back to school supplies. I stopped and realized that I have rummaged through these crates, boxes and packages of pens for 31 years, but not anymore. My daughter is in her last semester of College and has no list for me to fill.
A smart person would have smiled and walked away from the mass confusion but I stood there and actually wished I had a list to shop from
The memories of my children getting excited about having the best box of crayons, the prettiest pen and of course the new backpack.
Then as they grew we had to buy the locker organizers, different project supplies and the best graphic calculator money could buy.
I guess I'm just not ready to give up the ritual of back to school shopping,
Tell me what you think about this time of year. Does it excite you as much as the kids or is it a time that causes you to pull out your hair and drain your check book.
Until next time.
