Words of Wisdom

"This was not a good idea, Mom"! That's what Ayla said to me a little bit ago & I have to agree. We did something I hate to do, but occasionally we HAVE to do it. We just got back from Wal-Mart!! I didn't like to, but I HAD to go today. I've had an extreme urge for snickerdoodle cookies & we were down to our last 3/4 cup of flour, so you see, we had no choice but to go. We braved the rain with our "sunbrella" purchased on a previous trip to Wal-Mart. We made it in just fine, but a very slight gust of wind on our way out turned our "sunbrella" inside out. At that moment our keyless entry decided not to work. To make things worse, it took me an embarrassingly long time to figure out how to unlock the door with a regular old key! Needless to say we were sopping wet when Ayla delivered her words of wisdom. Maybe one day I'll learn to just stay home when I get the urge to go to Wal-Mart. One can only hope.

What isn't brought to us by Wal-Mart? Our source for cheap, plastic junk. And flour =)

{laughing} I had to brave Wal-Mart the other day cuz it's the only store I could find in our new city. It was horrible. That was the first time I bought something at Wal-Mart in seven years!!

I wonder if your "sunbrella" is similar to the "cumbrella" we have here?

Sara, that is one of the worst things about living out in the boonies!! There are lots of good things to make up for it though. I hope you guys adjust well.
