Today I bought a membership to Costco.

I know this will save our family some money over the long haul, since they have some really good prices on Organic stuff. The more of that the better, although we certainly are not purists.

Ariana is ecstatic over the ginormous bag of frozen blueberries I bought home. Yum.

Things I'm eyeballing there: a small folding table that I might set up as a permanent sewing corner in my bedroom.

Mattresses. The memory foam kind. I'm jonesing pretty badly for one of those. Will have to save up.

I really want to take Wes there for a tour.

This week, I still need to go birthday shopping for B, make a cake and stick it in the freezer before Sunday and buy a wedding present for some friends. Sunday we are driving to the wedding and I won't have time to make B's birthday cake. I guess I can take some cake with us for B to eat at the wedding since the cake there is not likely to be gluten free. He he.

My oldest is turning 16 on Monday!!!!! No driver's liscence for her, though, which makes me a bit sad. Her teenage years are not the fun filled and exciting years they are for so many. Or maybe that's just a myth I wrongly believe about everyone else's life. At any rate, the whole "16" thing is enough to make a mother misty eyed, for sure.

But I'm happy about Costco, at any rate, so I just wanted to share my joy. ;-)

Nice that you can get some good stuff at Costco; it is hard to see one of your children suffer.

But 16 is often not fun... I cannot relate to those who thought this age was fun; our society is out to make youth look like a day at the beach with no problems or worries; I find that our society often lies.

Hugs to you.

For us, Costco has the cheapest gas too!

Wish her the happiest birthday for me. Lots of love.

I love those big bag of frozen blueberries from Costco.

And, Many Years to B! My oldest has not gotten his license, and he just turned 19.
