Sundays in My City: Busy Day

Unknown Mami



We are traveling the world together with the Unknown Mami.
Click on the button to follow our photographic journey!
I am joining you from Middletown, Ohio, just north of Cincinnati.


EDIT: This post was supposed to publish last week, but computer problems prevented it. So, here are my photos from the last week of 2009!

Just a typically busy day of errands...



The day began with a quick trip to the Post Office.


Next, routine bloodwork for oldest daughter.
Unfortunately dramatic.


I promised her a McDonald's Coke
if she didn't kill anyone at the lab.
This worked quite successfully.



Oh no, Thank YOU.


On to the grocery store. LOVE this place. My total bill was around $85 for a week's worth of groceries, plus extra goodies for New Year's Eve.


We could spend hours at the library. Today we came home with two books for me, one for each kid, two movies and a CD.


Searching for a deal on a new winter coat. The place was packed.


Quite a frequent stop for us.


My favorite drive-through. The guy who works here always calls me "dear". Today I was picking up champagne and beer for
New Year's Eve.


After all those errands I needed to replenish the gas tank.


How do gas prices compare in your neck of the woods?

Thanks for visiting today!

  10. Yes, $85 does seem a bit low for groceries for an entire week. How does the price of petrol compare? We measure ours in litres and the current price per litre is about AUD 1.24 and that converts to about USD 5.20 per gallon. Cheaper than in the Netherlands by about half!

  11. Oh, Kohls, I love you so. Almost as wonderful as Target.
