As my dear daughter pointed out, when you see the pictures, it looks like it was so easy to take them. Our little adventure to Sears for the baby’s portrait took a couple of hours. Do you know how difficult it is to get a nine month old, independent crawler to sit still?!? Ugh! Still, I just KNOW you will agree that the results are perfection!
Personally, I am not a big back to school shopper. Since The Boy is now in high school I just load up on spiral notebooks, folders and loose leaf paper and figure out the rest after the first week.
Last year I decided to do something different about clothing, though. With Himself’s approval, I told The Boy that he could have $100 dollars to buy clothing for school by himself and that would be it. If he went shopping with me he might get more. He chose to go by himself. To the mall. One hundred dollars at the mall for a then fifteen year old. I sure didn’t expect him to get much but did he ever surprise us! He got two or three pair of pants/jeans and three or four shirts. Those of us who live in the Atlantic Northeast know that that is quite a haul!
This year he is getting $125. We’ll see how he does as he is going with a friend this time. I actually found a $10 off a $50 purchase coupon for his favorite store.
I do believe the prolotherapy worked a bit – maybe 20%. I still have pain but it is not excruciating in the morning. Praise the Lord! Now I have to see what the next step is – if there is a next step. I am just thankful for less pain.
Hope the larger print is easer for ya’ll to see. Figured I’d give us ALL a break!
