I went grocery shopping!!!
I had a list so I think I got everything I need. I’ll find out on Monday.
Anyway, when it’s busy, everything gets jammed and I leave my cart at the end of the aisle and wander up and down grabbing what I need--it’s faster that way.
Only this time, while I was looking for a decent kind of dinner roll, which took me a bit, the store manager (who I think was strolling up and down looking for abandoned carts which could have a BOMB in them!)) took my left-behind cart and rolled it to the front desk. After I had circled around all of the little islands in the bakery section about five times (because of course, I didn’t remember exactly where I had left the darn thing) a stock boy came by and led me to my stolen cart, rather profusely apologizing.
It’s all in the spirit of Christmas 2017, I guess.
My EX called today and managed to finagle a visit tomorrow afternoon to exchange presents with the kids, so I told him he sure had better bring some food in when he comes. We ordered Indian, though his memory is like a sieve, and he’s cheap, so we may end up with quarter-pounders from Mickey D’s. I told him I would provide an after-dinner grocery store dessert. If he forgets, I guess the sweets won’t make it out of the cupboard.
Like we really need MORE desserts this time of year.
I DO hope he doesn’t get me anything out of some misguided “family” spirit of Christmas, 'cause he ain’t getting anything from me. I may have to send him home with the grocery store lemon pound cake.
Tomorrow I plan to sit around in my pajamas ALL morning.
Before starting on the casseroles and pies for the next day. *sigh* No rest for the weary.
