I really love food. Apparently, too much food can be a bad thing. I hear exercise can counteract that problem. I run so I can eat. Thus, I love to run.
I didn’t run last night, even though I originally planned on it. We were getting low on milk, among other things, so I took off for Benton Harbor after the kids went to bed. Running out of milk just isn’t an option in our house.
I enjoyed my time out and alone. I brought along some hot tea. I had my list. I had all night, if I wanted.
I mosied around Target. Bought some underwear for Pey (why don’t they make small underwear for 2 year olds?? the smallest size is still too big). Bought diapers. (the last box lasted a long time! woohoo!)
Then I went to Meijer. I found some clearance energy supplements for me to experiment with. I walked around for quite some time looking for a metal hat rack. (never did find the bugger) And then I got our groceries. I filled up the cart first with lots of veggies. I love that part of grocery shopping.
I took my time and compared sale prices for different items. Ya know, saving 2 tenths of a cent per granola bar DOES matter. :)
And then I checked out using the you-do-it lane. Meijer was pretty desolate, so I didn’t feel rushed. 150 dollars later, I had all the groceries scanned and perfectly bagged. Stocked and loaded.
At both Target and Meijer I had MULTIPLE people ask me if I needed anything. Even by the same people twice sometimes. Either everyone was really bored or I looked really helpless. Who knows, maybe both. Sometimes it is just nice to wander aimlessly through stores.
