Yes, I was one of THOSE moms last night who shops for her kids school supplies at 8:30pm the night before the first day of school!  I know, it’s totally out of character for me but let me explain . . .

I have been hitting Staples, Office Depot and Office Max over the past several weeks for their awesome .01 deals, but of course I didn’t have everything Brad needed for school.  I received his school supply list on Thursday and had every intention of doing the shopping on Saturday for the few items I was missing. 

Saturday came and went before I realized it and I hadn’t been to the store so I thought I would just go after church on Sunday.  Then we needed to meet with our Realtor on Sunday afternoon to look at couple of houses . . . looking at a couple of houses turned into over 5 hours and an accepted contract on our NEW HOUSE!!!!!  I was emotionally and mentally exhausted as we headed back to the hotel but I dropped hubby and the kids off and went to Wal Mart to get the last few items Brad needed for school!

I was walking down the school supply isles wanting to explain to everyone I passed why I was shopping for school supplies the day before school started, but then I realized everybody else was doing the same thing!  Although Wal Mart is not my favorite store, I will say that they were well stocked and I had no problem getting my last minute supplies! 

Just another example of something I said I would never do as a Mom that God is graciously humbling me about!
