This Week’s Buzz: July 21st – July 27th

Observations from Back to School Shopping

Don’t look now, but I have already purchased all of my back to school supplies. It’s not that I’m counting the days until they go back … well, I am, but that’s not why I got the shopping done. It’s not because of the killer savings (Staples. Holy moly, the prices were really unreal.) It’s because it was something I could actually accomplish, hook line and sinker, from soup to nuts, in under an hour, for under $40. In my life of seemingly endless projects (organize!) or repetitive tasks (empty the dishwasher. fold the laundry. fill the dishwasher. wash the clothes. empty the dishwasher.), getting the school supplies purchased, organized, and labeled was something I could complete all at once. It was actually joyful.

And now it’s done, and I don’t have to fight the masses at Target or run to three different stores in late August to try to find a turquoise folder because that’s the color that really does help her learn best.

Here are a few observations:

When to Worry About Bedwetting
