Yesterday evening (after Matt got home from work) I had to do my weekly grocery shopping. Something I both dread & look forward to every week. I mean who really looks forward to grocery shopping? Walmart always seems to be packed & never enough cashiers. You wait in line forever, they always seem to be out of at least one thing I desperately need & don't even get me started on putting all that food away once I get home. At the same time it's "my" time. Yesterday was a very hectic day to say the least. So by the time I got in that car I was ready to roll down the windows,turn up that radio & just drive! As I was driving it seemed every song I loved was coming on over & over. As if the D.J. knew this mommy was out & about. I felt as if I were just flying out that country road rockin out all along the way. In reality I was going 45 in a 50 because daydreaming aside I'm a chicken! But, for a few minutes I was 17 again without a care in the world but what was coming on the radio next. I get in the store it's back to mommy. Looking for every good deal & every new healthy thing I can attempt to try to get my kids to eat! I call while I'm there to check up on them & smile when I hear them giggling in the background. I then rush to finish because I know Ty is out of apple slices & mommy promised he could have them as soon as I walked in the door. The daydream is no more & I realize that's just fine. I like what I am & where I'm at in my life. Until next week when I head to the store again. So next wednesday if your windows start shaking,you hear the bass coming,you look outside to see blonde hair fly by just give me a wave...This mommy's headed to the store!

Lol... I'm glad you're able to see the good in your weekly routine. I have to agree about the Wal Mart thing, why do they have so many check out stands, and only open 3?
