It has been an exhausting week of running, running, sleeping, and more running. I can’t wait for next weekend to get here, Chicago bound for my third 1/2 marathon with B, C and by running buddy Mike. I am going to hit up Randall’s today [they are having a big Friday sale]; I was going to go this morning, but C woke up at the booty crack because she thought there was a war waging outside her window… it was the lawn mower.

Yesterday, I took C to the dermatologist for a mollusk on her leg, the doctor wrote us a prescription for a steroid creme that cost $682.99… ::gasp:: Luckily, she gave us a card to get the prescrition FREE.

So far, I’ve accomplished CVS, Walgreen’s and even Kroger [for the TP] and only spent $49.78!
