I got to make my grocery and pharmacy rounds this morning [on a Wednesday!?], after seeing the Dr. for my sore throat.

Shopping on a Wednesday is strange for me because first, I have a grown up job to tend to and second, we have dinner with C on Wednesday nights during the school year. I take B to work on Wednesday mornings and head back home to get to work [this lucky duck gets to work en mi casa!]. But, the summer is upon us and we don’t have our Wednesday dinner tonight, but, we do get to pick up our home skillet on Friday!

This time last year I had the WORST case of Strep EVER. It was the first time I had ever had it, so it took me under. Today is my third day of hopping up on Vitamin C because my throat feels like it’s caving in… just like last year. Apparently, there is a virus going around that’s causing it - I think my pretty little niece brought it over on Sunday, isn’t she just so cute:

Muffin + Dakota

I stopped at CVS, Target, Walgreen’s, Randall’s and HEB and spent only $91 bucaroos.
