You're gonna start to sweat, and you ain't gonna stop....

It finally happened. I drug out two children in the summer heat, me un-showered (to save the earth, of course) to WalMart. I hate WalMart, but they are really close to my house, and I needed some digital one hour prints and some vinegar, and where else can you get those two things in one trip? Literally, we had less than 4 things to buy, and Eli had a melt.down. All out screaming inconsolable blubbering mess because I wouldn't buy the big bouncy ball. We have more than plenty balls in our house already. No pun intended. Anyway, there I was at the check out lane, greasy and with screaming child. In WalMart. It is almost funny. Oh, and as I was strapping the hot, screaming child in the car I realized I forgot to pick up the prints anyway. Doh.

I am fully convinced that walmart has something in is florescent lighting that drives children to meltdowns. I have rarely been in there with the boys without leaving in some sort of tizzy....i sware it doesnt happen anywhere else....except target.

Hey, WalMart makes me cranky, too now that I think about it.
