Going Crazy at WalMart

It was time to pick up the school supplies on Katie and Julie's list. I ran to Sam's Club to grab a few things that came in bulk there, then came home and picked up daisy_knotwise and the girls so we could head to WalMart to pick up everything else.

It was a zoo. Yes, WalMart is frequently a zoo, but when the main aisle heading in has a display down the middle of it full of back-to-school items so that there's barely room for a cart to get past on each side, except that everyone needs to stop there to look for things, you have absolute chaos. This took its toll on Gretchen and I, although we did manage to collect almost everything we needed.
