Post-Vacation Depression and Shopping Therapy!

Kristen over at Ladybug's Teacher Files is hosting a linky party about shopping! This post really fits so I am linking up!

After 7 nights of watching this....

And doing this.....

And watching my 2 favorite kidlets do this.....

And this.....about a million times......

I had to return to the big bad world.  At least two of my gal-pals made the transition easier with nachos and strawberry margaritas.

I have also started to ease this depression with some shopping therapy.   I hit the store with my kids' supply lists.  I have one 5th grader and one 8th grader and this is the beginning of their haul.  I still need to get my son 5 (yes 5) more binders.  The budget can only handle a few at a time.

 Then, of course, I picked up a few things for my classroom.  These were my Target purchases.  I could not resist the 2 little boxes.  They are blue and so cute!

The next stop was Walmart where the cashiers all ducked when they saw me coming with 20 boxes of crayons and 20 glue sticks!  I snagged a bunch of the paper 3-prong folders for our classroom books this coming year and some new Sharpies.  Who doesn't love Sharpies?

While I was going through this stuff I remembered that I had grabbed a few things from Michael's a few weeks ago.  Dry erase sentence strips? Cool!

The shopping therapy helped a little but I still wish I could sit around and do this.......

And help my little nephew do this.....

.......and eat a BUNCH more of these!  

Enjoy every moment of your summer my friends!
