For some reason we decided to try to not buy anything made in China this month. If nothing else, we'd save a lot of money we thought. It was fairly challenging. We had wanted to play tennis for our date without the kids, but I needed to buy a racket and balls and at Walmart at least, every single last one was made in China. We wound up just going to Coldstone Creamery instead. But I did have more luck (at Walmart even) buying stuff for Easter. I got Kiree two pacifiers with a clippie (made in Austria), Jaide got a color wonder set (made in the USA) and some tinkerbell stickers (printed in Canada- whatever that means). Instead of buying a bunch of gross Easter candy that I would eat way too much of, I decided to get a bar of good chocolate (made in Germany). Saturday night I made some rice krispy treats in egg shapes and filled some plastic Easter eggs I already had with some mini marshmallows and almonds.
The other thing I started doing was putting stickers up on the calendar each day that I read my scriptures on my own. Bob and I read every night, but it's been hard for me to get personal study in. We'll see if that helps.
Quick cute story: Jaide is a little Harry Potter fan. We have this little foam witch hat and she stuck it on my head and said, "You're giffandore" Then she "sorted" Kiree as well.
