Arkansas taxes food too!! Drives me freakin' ( ) nuts!! And our county/city tax is 10%! I usually do my big shopping in Texas (27 miles away) where I don't get charged tax, and taxed items are only 8.25%. In the long run, it does save money. When I only need a few items, I do buy in my town because it wouldn't save me any money by having to drive that far for a few things. KWIM?
Ok, so I clean and clean the house, get it spotless...even got on my hands and knees to scrub around the hallway bathroom toilet! I went to Sams this morning at 8am and got back so I can make these sandwiches (they were yummy, BTW!). Everyone starts arriving by 11am, all bearing gifts!! Apparently a "secret" baby shower invitation went out, and my friend did a baby shower for me today. She had games, and all that. I just provided the clean house! About 15 sisters were here. We had a good time with the "Lunch Bunch"...lots of good food, and then had a nice shower. I got tons of nice stuff. Almost to much!! I told them I felt really silly!! I was almost embarrassed!! It had been such a long time since I had a shower. I didn't know how to act!
