My wonderful, amazing Dad and sweet grandmother gave my son money for sporting equipment. We spent 2 days trying to find all of the things he needed. No money out of my pocket and I have one happy boy.
I volunteered at the High School football game in the concession stand. I was so hungry serving all of that food. Luckily I took water and snacks (new habit- never would have even crossed my mind before) and in the end it paid off and I got a drink and some leftovers.
