Four on Friday...

1. We went around gathering school supplies today -- kind of. For some reason, our school is the only school in the area (out of probably ten schools?) which still hasn't put out the supply list. And now is when all the sales are happening, so I'm not a happy camper. I suspect the 'powers that be' don't realize that so many of us shop the sales. I seldom spend more than $10/kid on supplies -- all because of shopping around the sales.

2. It's hot. 'Nuff said *sigh*.

3. D finished up flag football camp today, and the coaches mentioned he has 'good hands' and should play receiver. That made D happy -- but it's hard to find actual flag football teams in this area, so...

4. IKEA opens in Denver next week, and my FIL got a special pass to go tomorrow (he was the printer/mailer for their PR stuff) -- and he invited us! I'm so excited :D I think I'm more excited about IKEA than about our 25th reunion (which is this weekend, as well). *squee*

Happy weekend!

Our Walmart has school sales on right now, and you can pick up supply lists for every school outside our district. I just don't get it.

Cool compliment on D's receiving talents!

Good luck staying cool!

It's frustrating (school supply shopping), isn't it? *fumes*

School shouldn't be contemplated until labor day.

Ikea is a great place to send the day ... great stuff.

Since our school starts two weeks before Labor Day, we don't have much choice ;)

And yes, I'm all for Ikea!

Oh, I LOVE Ikea! If the restaurant is open, you should definitely get some Swedish meatballs -- yummy and not very expensive :)

It's not even August yet! I hate to think about gathering school supplies in July. Oh dear. And it's not that I don't enjoy school, because I always have.

Do let share your impressions of IKEA. I have yet to visit one, even though there is one in Montreal that would be tres convenient.

I've been to two others (only once each, though -- in San Diego and Phoenix) -- I really like them :)

I love Ikea! I have purchased most of my furniture from them! (Only my bed, the sofas and the bookshelf my husband made are not from Ikea!)

It was a wild adventure -- I'll be blogging about it in a day or two :)
