Left to her own devices

Since Elizabeth came home from Hawaii four days before Rick and I, and because there was absolutely no food in our house when she got home, (we always manage to eat all of our groceries before leaving) we gave her our credit card in case of an emergency... or for a few groceries... or a pizza fest for her friends. Only seemed right.

And so Elizabeth went shopping. At WalMart. For groceries. Yeah, you can only get so many groceries at WalMart.

And last night when I finally remembered that she had my credit card, I asked for it back and collected the receipt as well.

Here's a sample of what she bought:

Smucker's Caramel Syrup
Coffeemate
hair color
index cards
expanding file
2 in 1 sponge
magazine
magazine
file folders
cat food
cat litter
cat pan liner
8x10 frame
8x10 frame
post it notes
cake
ice cream
sour cream
cheddar cheese
croutons
and a host of other items that all spelled out "snacks."

Oh, and one can of chicken noodle soup. It's good she decided to buy at least one thing decent to eat.

Yep, our house was NOT filled with groceries when we came home. But my credit card had been violated for $190.45.

I was so happy to find that I could take care of my daughter long distance. Or at least host some sort of a birthday party.

I cannot believe that the 16.4 gallons of whole, reduced fat, and fat free milk was not included on this shopping list receipt. I take pride in my milk purchasing abilities!
