Walmart Is Evil.

I'm tired. Very tired. It's 12:43 AM. We left to go back-to-school (and a few groceries mixed in) shopping at 8 PM. We just now finished putting everything away.

First of all, if  my two wonderful friends hadn't told me about the hunormous school sales going on at Wal-Mart right now, we would never have even been IN there in the first place at 8 PM on a Tuesday night. (Our kids start school on Monday, by the way.) But we were there, and the supplies weren't. Wal-mart was completely wiped. We walked up and down, 'round and 'round, back and forth, and still, there were no crayons or composition notebooks in that store. We should have just gone to Walgreens and saved ourselves the trouble. And time. And a whoooooole lotta money.

Because Wal-mart is evil. They hook you in there with their everyday low prices, right? You go, and you see, and you "ooh, I need that" and "ahh, I must have this" and before you know it, all those special little deals have turned your little school supply list into a $417 order! Which you must then bag up, take home, scan for Nielsen, put away, and divvy up for new backpacks.

And then, of course, you still have to go to Walgreens to get the crayons and composition notebooks. And maybe the new Lil Kinz Webkinz Cares cow that's now on sale. That you name "Moo Latte." Get it? Moo-latto. Because she's black and white.

So I'm tired. And it's late. And that's all the blog I've got in me. Sicily will have to wait 'til tomorrow, as will the cute pictures from today.
