I bought some Bath & Body Works and it made me sad

A few weeks ago I was hanging out at the outlet malls when I realized that Bath & Body Works had their hand soaps on sale 7 for $20. This being my favorite sale of the year I rushed in to buy some. There seemed to be endless options on what scents and types to get; moisturizing, foaming, anti-bacterial... I was sort of overwhelmed by all the options. Eventually I narrowed it down to the 7 soaps that I thought would be great next to my kitchen sink. As soon as I got home I stashed my generic hand soap and picked the one that I thought would smell the best, Cherry. After trying it out I discovered that the Cherry scent is actually more of a marlboro light smell than a fruit smell. Weird. I made it a 1/3 of the way through that bottle before hiding it in the closet and picking another. This time it was Cinnamon Raisin Cookie... also disgusting. What the hell? Bath & Body Works we are 2 for 2 and I'm a little bit scared to continue trying the other scents. Maybe I'll just stick to walmart soap.

Hello Followers!!

All 10 of you anyway :) I just can't seem to get the hang of this whole blogging on a regular basis thing. It's not like I have anything new or interesting to say, but whatever. I promised to blog, so blog I will. We are very nearly to September and it's still incredibly hot ALL THE TIME. What is up with texas? If it's going to be that hot then all homes should be legally required to have AC. Being hot does not make me a happy camper at all. I hope that this ends some day soon.

The kids have been in school for a week and have already had a 3 day weekend. J has decided that she hates school, so every morning is a battle. She's all smiles by the time I pick her up, though. K is in 1st grade and seems to enjoy school as much as she ever has. She loves learning and socializing, so something that combines both of her favorite things at the same time is bound to be a hit. I'm glad that school has started for them, but sad that I'm not able to continue my classes this year. Hopefully soon we will get stationed else where and I can get back to the way things were. Well, I've run out of mundane topics to talk about so...
