blah blah blah...

so, it's Monday. It's been....Monday. Both of us decided to "ditch" work to get some important personal stuff done (we're almost caught up with our backlog, so really - it's ok.)

Me? I figured out my budget for payday - I'll actually have enough left to buy gas this go 'round, even with buying a few extras. Yippee! I also priced the kid's uniforms for next year - and came in 1/2 of what I budgeted. Double Yippee!

Speaking of which - if your kids are enrolled at a school that requires uniforms, I *highly* recommend School-Uniforms. I did a price comparison last year, and they came in at the top of the economical list - they weren't the cheapest, but they were close; the shipping was cheaper, and the quality is superb. Himself has some shirts that still look *brand* new, even after spending a year in Kindergarten with him. Herself's new wardrobe (which will consist of 5 each: long pants/shorts/short sleeve polos/long sleeve polos) will come in right at $250; Himself's will come in at $220. *IF* I buy 5 each; He doesn't need 5 of everything and I don't think she does, either. Must check tonight.

Considering that 2 years ago I spent $500 just on HER, this is a bargain. (And the shirts? Suck. Horrid poly-blend that holds stains like nobody's business, look and feel icky.....these new ones feel more "high-class", have held up well, and just all around look nicer.)

Oh, and uniforms are *way* better than street clothes for school. No fights in the morning over what to wear, no peer pressure to look like a hootchie-mama or pimp......seriously. Plus, they really are cheaper than regular clothes - try finding a pair of jeans for $14 that'll last the whole year (well, provided the kid doesn't outgrow them.....)

Now, I wait on the bank to release my funds........:mumble, grumble:
