On Saturday #203 (#23 for Harper) I woke up and said "Enough is enough!" My bed had to go. I set my mind on one goal... buying a new mattress. My back was sore, my shoulders were sore. I was waking up at least 5 times a night. Our mattress was only 3 years old, but sleeping on concrete was more comfortable than climbing into bed. That is a true story.
My dear husband tried to talk me out of it, but he did so knowing that after the accident in our bed courtesy of the stomach flu my little boy had, he would never sleep in it again... nor would anyone else for that matter, as I had made the attempt to sleep in it the night before and did not enjoy the experience or the smell, so his frugal attempt fell short. After he tried the bed we ended up buying his speech about saving money abruptly ended and he sighed happily.
We decided to visit Hobby Lobby. I had not visited Hobby Lobby in years. Honestly the experience was not at all satisfying. I found everything was ridiculously more expensive than at Jo-Anne, the selection was very limited and the layout of the store is terrible. I did purchase several Safari LTD Toobs for sensory bins and a few crafts to do with Roo, but I grumbled over how expensive my tiny bag of goodies was.
That was the day in a nutshell, typical. Filled with spending too much money. Considering I am a few weeks behind on my 940 Saturdays update, I will say I am not complaining. A new bed was money well spent, and I had a ton of fun shopping for beds with the family. Roo was hilarious trying out all of the beds,
I hope you had a chance to do something with your family over the weekend!
