PhotobucketDespite the fact that I did not feel like shopping at all this week, I still managed to do a whole lot of shopping. My five-year-old got his permanent Lightning McQueen Red cast on today, and he is a little bit too proud of his new cast. After the morning doctor’s visit, my husband dropped the kids and I off at the shopping plaza, and we went shopping until my oldest son got out of school at 2 p.m.

When I saw the beginning total at Publix before coupons, I almost fainted….but slowly and steadily the total started decreasing until I could finally breathe again. Have any of you ever had this feeling at the register?
