Summer is almost over. . .

. . . and what do I have to show for it?
  • a deep empathy for Kate and a desire to see Jon neutered
  • the knowledge that PayLow is NOT the lowest priced supermarket in South Lake County
  • a pre-teen who thinks she can sleep til noon
  • a toddler who thinks he can swim
  • the knowledge that the government requires Tim to randomly drug test himself~is that really random?
  • the disappointment in never seeing a White Sox win in the Twinkie~dome.
  • pasty white skin without a hint of a tan
  • a working knowledge of "fins to the left"
  • a whole bunch of new friends
  • the loss of my patience
  • the return of my true blond hair
  • a hole in my summer where Hilton Head should have been
  • an appreciation for Yo Gabba Gabba
  • 15 hours lost to helping Jillian find Mr Right

Meijer. Same prices as Aldi (except maybe on baking ingredients and processed snacks~which I don't buy so I can't really comment)and WAY better selection.

I wish we had a Meijer close by! My only options are Jewel (yuck!) or Whole Foods...I can't believe summer is over either - am dreading another long, cold chicago winter...
