I’ve got three kids home and one at basketball camp this week, but grocery shopping had to be done. To make grocery shopping feasible in the summer, the kids get to choose snacks (from a few, on sale with coupon snacks), gets a cookie at the end of the Publix trip if they’ve listened etc.
Today I chose a Publix store next to a playground, so after shopping we headed for the playground. That way the kids got to have a little fun, and I got to play basketball, but it sure was a hassle bringing all of the groceries to the park. Still, the playground has to come last, because its an incentive to keep the kids from fighting and bickering.
Our oldest son brought home a cold the last week of school, and it has now been through every family member, but our daughter still has it. At our local gym, we cannot drop of kids with runny noses (which is a good thing), and that means that I’ve not been at the gym for the week. I usually run 2 – 3 miles a couple of times a week and do other exercises at the gym, so this week we’ve been outside playing basketball a few times. I’ve used the playground as my gym, and we even went for a walk (in the scorching heat) at one of the parks with exercise equipment. It’s not the same as running, but at least I’ve been moving determined not to get out of shape while everyone recuperates.
After last week’s lack of coupons, I finally got coupons printed and cut this week, but it sure is difficult to find the time between my writing, four kids at home and keeping the kids occupied. Still, this week Publix has a great sale, and you can find a bunch of great deals between sales and coupons.
