This morning we (my oldest daughter and I) watched some of So You Think You Can Dance. We’re awfully behind! Good old PVR. However, I enjoy watching it. I always have! We just watch less shows in the summer, which is why we PVR everything. It was registration day for the high school. We still haven’t heard back from the student services lady about the phrase-ed mix-up. The school fees were $170. We had to pay them at home online, on power school. We had to fill in registration forms on power school as well. Then, she had to go in to the school to finish the registration process, get her student ID card and her locker picked. I think she’s starting to get a bit nervous that high school is actually starting soon!! New schools and high school too, are always a bit intimidating, but I know she’ll be fine.
Once she got home from school registration, we had to get ready for her dance registration. I had to get my 10 post-dated cheques ready. This year our payment has gone up by about $50 a month! We’re paying $267.50 monthly for our daughter to dance. This does not include competition fees, costumes, solos or duos, and shoes/dance-wear. Dance is not a cheap sport! We probably pay as much as hockey parents do, if not more! Crazy! However, she really loves it. It keeps her out of trouble and occupied. She has hardly any time left to herself, let alone time to get into trouble!! No, the benefits outweigh the costs. I believe!
Once we arrived at the studio and I filled out all of the forms, we went into Amanda’s office and she told us the monthly cost. I filled in my cheques for her. We chit chatted about general stuff. I remember a few years ago, how nervous my girl was for her dance registration, going to this new studio. Now it’s like old hat and she’s beyond comfortable at the studio.
After the studio, we drove to the Ardenes at Capilano mall. My daughter needed some new jeans and back to school clothes. While she was trying on her jeans, I found a 70%off rack. She went through the rack meticulously and found about 7 or 8 t-shirts. The price was so good! It was like $30 for 8 shirts. A very good price! That’s like a little less than $4 per shirt!! Then we also got three pairs of jeans, which were 30% off. So our total for her back to school clothes was about $122. That’s it! She got a $25 gift card for her birthday, so it actually cost me only about $97. Not bad for 3 pairs of jeans and 8 shirts!! Then we went next door to Winners. We found a school backpack that she really likes. It was only $24.99. Not bad at all!! I know that we’ve spent more than that on backpacks!!! We also bought her a new wallet made of really soft leather, for only &19.99. ! I bought some lip tattoo things. You put it on your lips, where you want it. It dries in about 10 minutes, then you peel it off and it leaves behind 10hr lip colour!! It’s supposed to tiny your lips! It sounded so cool, I wanted to try it! I’ll test the product out and let you all know what I think! The price was reasonable, only $9.99 for five tubes of different colours. I’ll take before and after photos to show you how it works. Of course I’ll let you know what the actual brand is called too!!
When we got home we made tacos for supper. They were good! They were fast too! My oldest believed that they’d take too long. But it only took us 25 minutes to prepare!! Yay us!! Afterwards, my hubby, my daughter (younger) and I sat and talked about how much camping would cost and whether or not we can afford it. I guess I’m going to go with my daughter (younger). We may or may not bring my son. If we do, we are not limited in how long we can be there. If we don’t bring him, I get s couple day break from him and time with just my daughter, but we have to come home Saturday night, because both my hubby and my oldest work Sunday, so there’s no one here to watch my son. Hmmmm…decisions decisions… I’m not sure what to do. I’m torn. I like the idea of a break. But, if we’re having fun, it’d be nice to have the option to stay longer if we want. Well, I’m beat, so…I’m going to sleep on it! I need some rest. Night All! 💤😴
