I rallied everyone early, eager to make the produce market by 8. Planning an ice cream social for 50 had just fallen into my lap.
The kids were fussing by the time we arrived. We only crossed a couple items off the list.
I pressed on. Sam's Club, followed by Aldi, then a bicker-filled, seat-kicking ride home.
"Do NOT talk!" I growled. The day was slipping by, gas wasted, everything left undone.
"Go to your room and do not talk to me again!"
I have 3 grocery stores within a 2-minute drive. I pledge to shop only those till this baby arrives, local organic foods and/or bargain prices be darned.
There is a price for sanity and I may just find it at the bottom of my Walmart receipt.
