I learned a lesson this week. One that I, apparently, need to relearn every once in a while. After feeding my brother's family dinner last Thursday and Friday (and then on Sunday and Wednesday), I decided that I would not go to the store for my weekly shopping. Since my brother is not very good at planning ahead, I ran to the store five times while he and his family were here, between Thursday and Wednesday. I spent much more time shopping that if I had sat down and planned my trip, and I spent much more money (and it wasn't because I was feeding five more). Urg.
It was a good reminder -- planning saves time and money.
Fortunately this weekend will make up for all that work, because we've been invited to dinner elsewhere on Saturday and Sunday. And all I have to bring is dessert. Awesome.
