Must Go Shopping

I'm trying to remember the last time I actually got out of the house and went shopping. It's been a while. We're starting to run out of important things, and I really need to go to the store and buy a thing or two. Luckily I'm the kind of person that stocks up when things are on sale, and it would take a very long time for us to run out of everything. There is still food in the house, and we can still eat. It may not be exactly what they want to eat, but at least it's food. Besides, as I mentioned yesterday, Beth doesn't like anything anyway, so, as long as we have peanut butter in the house, she's good. She does like macaroni and cheese, too - so I do need to get some of that. Cory still has a good supply of ramen noodles, so he's not complaining yet. What I really need is some fresh produce - apples, bananas, carrots, celery, lettuce - stuff like that.

I was thinking I should go to the store today. I was even checking the ads, sorting coupons, and trying to find some online coupons to use last night. Then this morning I decided to just wait until tomorrow. The kids have eye doctor appointments in the morning. Since I have to be out anyway, I'm just going to wait and go after their appointments. No sense in going out two days in a row if I don't have to, and we'll be close to ALDI. I've been keeping a running list of the stuff we're getting low on, and I can get most of it there. I love that store, and I don't get there very often because it's not close.

I'm sure the kids will love being dragged to the store, but there's nothing they can do about it! Maybe I'll bribe them by taking them to lunch after? I'll probably end up buying more stuff than we actually need because they're with me, but hopefully that means they will actually eat it without complaining. I mean, hopefully that means she will actually eat it without complaining. Cory eats most anything. After all, he is a growing teenage boy.

Next week I'll probably go to the grocery store since they have double coupons on Wednesday. I love me some double coupons!


  1. Hi Anna,

    My name is Heather. I'm a 36 y/o christian, SAHM of two girls, 11 & 9. I've been happily married for 13 years and we live in North Texas.

    After looking around your blog I found so many other blogs. I didn't realize there were so many. Anyway, I feel like I can relate to you so that's why I decide to reach out to you.

    I'm hoping you may have some good advice for me. I'm not sure what's wrong with me. I have everything to be happy about, but for some reason I'm not. I have a wonderful husband, who's a great dad to our daughters. I have two adorable daughters, who I love dearly and are my whole world. My husband has a good job, so I'm able to stay at home and not have to work 40 hours a week. I know that's alot to be happy about and I am truly grateful for each of those blessings. So that's why I don't know why I am so unhappy. I think the reason why I'm unhappy is because I'm lonely. Besides my husband and my girls I don't have anyone else. I think I would be happier if I had some girlfriends to talk to. I really need to connect with some good christian friends. Maybe you can help. Thanks for listening. Heather

  2. Getting out and doing the shopping thing....hmmm...I tend to do that all to hubby loves to shop...we were at Costco yesterday and of course spent way to much money...there is something about Costco you can never go in the and leave without spending at least $'s just wrong.

    And as far as the kids eating...I must say I have been fortunate my girls ate pretty much anything except seafood which I love and mushrooms....that pretty much where they drew the line...oh yes we had our problems with some of the other veggies...but if a gave them to them raw they would eat them so what he heck why not....

    Hope the day went swell....


I love your comments! Keep them coming.
