Well, for those of you who live in the Tri-State area, we are being bombarded with threats of a terrible blizzard-like storm approaching. The news and weather channels are having a field day trying to scare us all! Hurry up, run to the store now and buy everything you need, get your milk, eggs, and bread, make sure your car has gas, you have a shovel and plenty of salt to melt the ice! I became that person...not the person frantically making sure I get everything I need in a panic, but, sadly, I had to go shopping because I did actually need things. So, me, like an idiot, HAD to go to the grocery store yesterday, only because I was off from work and it was my only day to go. NOT because I am afraid of the pending snow storm, I did, in fact, need to go because I haven't in about 2 weeks! I had plenty of frozen meats and veggies folks, I cook every night, but I was in fact out of, you guessed it, bread, milk and eggs and a long list of other things needed to run a home.
So, out and about I go... First stop, believe it or not, I hit Lowes - we threw our snow shovel out this Spring because it was broken. You guessed it, not a snow shovel to be found, but I got my salt! Whew! One thing done! Okay, off to the grocery store... This is a place I completely loathe on any given day! The parking lot was a mess, everyone and their mother was trying to park and no one has any courtesy or common sense. But, I scored. Then I accidentally turned down a lane just to get out of the way so traffic could flow, and then, "BAM!", a 3rd space spot hiding behind a large SUV! Now, I need to find a friggin' quarter to get a carriage to put all my goodies in.
