March 1st

Ok so I have no idea where this past week went. It was crazy busy and flew by. We had snow on Wednesday our "dusting" ended up closing school on Thursday UGH.

My kids are in this phase of NOT getting along and its driving me crazy. I went grocery shopping today and it was constant calls of so and so did this, so and so said this. I was about to tear my hair out. As it was I went shopping without much planning (NOT GOOD) and with the distractions of kids calls I honestly had no idea what I ended up buying.

I went to Winco and Costco today. I did pick up some juice boxes at Walmart the other day so I have added them in. Overall not bad! could have done much better though.
