Don’t get me wrong, I love reading children’s stories with my kids, but sometimes a Mama needs some adult conversation.
Of course on the way in I stopped at Mike’s Parcel Service and picked up several boxes of books, curriculum and supplements. I also bought a HUGE 600 page package of laminating sheets. Sadly Amazon packed it will my box of puzzles, and the laminating sheets were so heavy they destroyed the wooden box. Thankfully Amazon refunded me the money for the puzzles and my dad was able to repair the box.
It was such a nice get away, and felt like the old days. We laughed and talked about the old times when my brother and I were kids. I know that this weekend away will be one of those memories I have with me for always.
My mom and I did very good on our Weight Watchers plan. We were able to track and still lose weight at our weigh in the following week. I stocked up on products that I cannot get in Canada and we tried a few need products, and loved them.
Crossing the border was a nightmare. We did not calculate our receipts the way the border patrol wanted us to and we were hauled in. Sadly I depended on my phone to proved receipts for the items I picked up at the border, and for the first time ever I could not get reception at the border. Thankfully, the border patrol officer inside was much nicer, and took pity on us. After a quick look through the motor home, he waved us through.
All I know, is now I plan to have the numbers added up in different ways, ready to go. I will also not depend on my phone to proved receipts. I will print my PayPal and Amazon invoices before I head out.
