Rough day today..... First we went to a local art show and stopped by a little grocery store that I swore took EBT the last time I was there. I splurged a little and bought nearly $10 worth of lunch goodies, whipped out the EBT card and they didn't take it.
I couldn't put the food back in front of my whiny, sick 3.5 year old DS, so I put it on my debit card, which hurt. Then later when DS got much sicker, and he ended up in the ER with strep, I stopped by McDonald's for a milk shake and a snack for me. Totally shouldn't have bought a snack for me, but I was glad he was getting some calories in and he said it felt good on his throat. So, another $7 gone. On a good note, I sold $60 worth of stuff from my basement today!
And, we are not driving anywhere tomorrow. DS needs to stay inside and on the couch so he can go to school in the morning on Monday, so no driving for us, maybe a walk to the pharmacy in the morning, but that is it.
