Why Didn't I Go to the Store Yesterday?


I needed to go to the store yesterday. I knew I needed to go, but I had other things pressing (like a pile of laundry as high as an elephant's eye to fold) and so I never went. So today, we are down to the last of the milk, I have no vegetables to feed my kids at dinner, and I think we are pretty low on toilet paper. That said, it is snowing like crazy right now. I HATE grocery shopping when it is snowing. It is not just about driving in the snow to get there but unloading three kids out of their car seats in the snowy parking lot, usually getting a wet basket, shopping and then having to reload my kids back in the car seats (while I am standing in wet, dirty, slushy snow), loading my car in the snow and then unloading everything in a cold,wet, muddy garage. Why didn't I go yesterday? I saw the forecast. I knew it was going snow. Why? Why? Why?

janice... from where I'm standing it isn't snowing much. What's all this about?

Just kidding. But I know what you mean. I don't have children, but your description was a very good one. And being cold and wet just isn't as fun as it used to be.

I do this all the time. I have to tackle the gigantic pile of laundry and the grocery shopping. Ugh.
