Since I survived (barely) my trip to Walmart the other day, I decided it would be great fun to make another giant list of things I still need to get for Ashton for college, and throw myself in headfirst.
We bought him a first aid kit but the things he might need that we always have on hand here at home are not in it so I have to empty it and refill it with necessary items.
Immodium, alcohol, (not the kind you drink, I drank all that this week)tweezers, nasal spray, Burts Bees lip balm, Advil, neosporin, Benadryl, Alka Seltzer Cold, etc.....
The list grows daily so I ask this pertinent question.
Why don't they figure in these costs when they say college will be $25,000 a year???????
What they mean is $25,000 a year plus all the crap you have in your house that your spoiled and pampered child has become used to and cannot possibly live without.
I know I said I was sending him off with a case of poptarts, a 12 pack of Dr. Pepper and a smile but when it gets down to the wire, I still gave birth to him and I don't want him to be uncomfortable or sick or sad.
Maybe I just need someone to hit me over the head with a textbook (haven't got the bill for those yet)
Maybe I need a friend.
Maybe I need a drink.
Anyway, I am sure I have missed a few things so if you can think of any other college stuff that I might have forgotten (I know they have stores there and he can go every week to get stuff but I want him to have everything to start with) let me know.
Cause I thought I was almost done.
And the list goes on and on.
And now Mr. Funny needs some stuff too (doesn't he know how busy I am going insane????)
And Ashton has informed me that only Walgreens carries some of the stuff he needs.
