Today was to be the day of the "comeback kid...er, Mom", but it didn't go quite as well as I would've liked. The day started out just fine...coffee with my husband, while feasting on a fresh, hot cinnamon roll, followed by a shower and a full face and hair makeover...and I was ready for a nap. Seriously. But, being the trooper that I am (ha!), I decided to forge on.
My husband and I drove into town to pick up our newest married daughter, Valerie. She is moving into her first apartment (husband, Jake, is serving our country in Iraq) and was in dire need of a couch. Since we were going into the "big" city, we decided to make a stop at IKEA first. That was mistake #1. On a grocery shopping trip, when one is recuperating from an illness, groceries should probably come first, or at least before the energy tank is drained! On a healthy day, IKEA is exhausting, so I'm not really sure what I was thinking. Actually, I do...the new bar stools look fabulous!!!
Mistake #2 was stopping at Best Buy to exchange a couple of Ipods that had expired. (Loving the warranty!) The store was HOT, and it took forever. Well, it felt like forever. Now, I was really feeling the energy drain. On the way out of the store, I told my husband to just skip Whole Foods and head straight to Costco. All I really "needed" was some organic, nitrite/nitrate free bacon. The rest I could do without.
Mistake #3...thinking that I was going into Costco and only getting bacon.
So now I will crawl (literally) into my bed, and recharge my batteries for tomorrow. The day that I will actually get my grocery shopping done!
