Shopping for groceries today, ho hum, ho hum. I had a list and thoroughly enjoyed crossing my items off as I placed them in my cart (I'm a freak like that). Apparently, though, there would be no crossing off of the strawberries today. I went around the produce section multiple times, thinking surely I missed them. But, no. No strawberries. There are always strawberries. Fine, not gonna ruin my shopping experience. After all, I'm at the grocery store at 2:00 p.m. on a *school day.* NICE!
Next item, protein bars. Not just any protein bars. My kids like the Special K protein bars. Every store I go to either keeps them in an odd, out of the way spot, or just does not carry them. I know what you're thinking, "there is a protein bar section" and there is. But, they are not there. Cereal bars, not there either. They have the protein-less Special K bars there, but not the protein kind. For the love of Pete!!! It's like "Where's Waldo" at Shop N Save. Finally I found them in the......pharmacy section. Really?? WTF? I only found them there b/c I was looking for benedryl. Do other people have as much trouble as I do finding certain things at the grocery store?
Anywho, paid and out to my van I go. Putting them in the back and the cart starts to roll down the parking lot. Why would you build a grocery store parking lot on a slope? Just to make my day a little more interesting? Well, thankseversoverymuch! I wedged the cart in a way that I was sure it was secure. NOPE! Now I pull it back and put my foot on the bottom as I'm unloading the bags. This could be an olympic sport for women. Did I mention it's 100 flipping degrees outside?
I looked great once I got in the van and blasted on the AC. On my way home I made up a song. It was about protein bars and parking lots and had lots of four letter words in it.
