Is it a sex blog? A mommy blog? A bitch & moan blog? Um, . . . yeah. This is my place to be totally honest. In my real life, I feel like I'm always lying to somebody about something. Here, I am totally honest. Brutally so. However, no matter what bad things I say about my kids, I adore them and would never ever really, say, sell them on Ebay. The husband, often referred to as Spousehole, is another story. Oh yeah - if you are under 18 (or if you are my husband), please leave now.

DO NOT Take the Whole Fam' to Costco

Whatever you do, dear people, do not take the whole family with you to Costco. Especially if you have a wallet full o' cash. It will not turn out well. You go in for 2 freakin' things, you come out with: 3 huge boxes of cereal, a case of 200 Fla*Vor*Ice Plus, a ginormous package of ham, a slightly less ginormous package of hard salami, two pounds of swiss cheese, a monster box of Bisquick, three half-gallons of vanilla soy milk, a huge container of liquid Tide (which you later figure out is cheaper at Target, damn it!), new phones for the whole house (4 handsets!), some weird shelf-stable vegetarian Indian food, a 25 lb. bag of rice, and more. Holy Mary Mother of God!!

Just don't do it!

LOL! It can be dangerous! There are lots of stores that tempt us! Our secret is to treat it like a casino. Bring only a certain amount of $$ and leave the ATM card at home.

Costco: Buying more than you need to save money. And then there's the all of the samples to sample with people and their kids blocking passage through the aisles in the name of free food. Those who come to "graze" regardless of how much aisle space they take up creates a problem. I wonder - is Costco about shopping or about grazing?

But... swiss cheese is so good. :)
