It's been a month of getting back on an even keel with life. Kids back at school, students back at university, fall leaves etc. (blogs not getting posted on time)
1. As I previously mentioned, child number 1 is back at university.
2. Sending your child off to university is expensive.
3. Hope she'll remember that when she picks out my nursing home....
4. Sending your oldest to public school is not too expensive. Especially because he feels like he needs nothing except a box of pencils for school supplies.
5. Which was a good thing because this is the year that the football team goes off to California for 5 days. And the final payment was due in September.
6. Child number three is in private school. And HE had an extensive, expensive supply list.
7. Fortunately, his growth spurt was confined to his legs - meaning he only needed new pants.
8. And his feet have stabilized for the moment, so last year's shoes fit.
9. However, my car has chosen this month to need a new clutch.
10. We have started down that path of "Do the expensive repair on the 10 year old car or buy a new one?"
11. We seem to be heading towards "Buy the new one"
12. There goes the winter holiday.
13. It is supposed to be even colder and snowier than last year.
14. I guess (being a sensible adult) that a new car that won't leave me stranded in
-35 C weather is important.
15. I think I am tired of being a sensible adult.
