What a weekend. My Mom came and picked up my brother earlier so it's just Nick & I again. He's fun to have around, but it's nice to have the house to yourself again. If I had to watch another episode of Spongebob Squarepants I think I would have strangled someone. Who makes these cartoons?? I don't remember cartoons being quite that stupid when I was a child. I also don't remember the people and objects looking so dumb - are the animators paid professionals or a class of third graders? Geez.......I miss the Flintstones and Scooby Doo. Even the smurfs were more believable than the weird creatures they draw now.
Tonight Nick and I had to make a run to the grocery store - it was high time to stock up on a lot of stuff. Usually one trip out of the month is the big shopping trip - you know, the one where you spend over $100 and can't quite figure out how? But tonight I was prepared - I made my list, thumbed through my coupon file, and before it was all said and done I saved $23.88 with coupons. Not too shabby if I do say so myself.
