It’s such a struggle for me to convince myself to leave the house. Shopping is so easy because Vince loves to do it. I can convince him that it’s best if he runs to the store on his way home, even though he doesn’t pass a store, rather than me having to go. If I could just convince him to get only what’s on the list and not a dozen of everything on sale, I’d have it made.
This morning I needed to go out. I planned to be gone by 8 a.m. and at 9:00, I was still sitting here in my pajamas saying . . you have to get dressed and go! Maybe I had a premonition of my failure on this trip.
First, I needed additional blood work. On Tuesday my doctor’s office didn’t have a “yellow top tube” to run one of the tests so they told me to go by another lab in town but at the time, they couldn’t find a yellow top tube but knew they had them. So I called this morning to see if they found the yellow top tube and they had but informed me that it’s a “time sensitive test” and they can’t do it on Friday. Scratch that stop off the list.
Next stop was the pet store to get cat food. That went off without a hitch.
The main things I needed from the store were fresh horseradish root, avocados and ginger root. I figured I was in the wrong town to find horseradish root and sure enough . . first stop was Kroger. No horseradish and they didn’t get any of the avocados that were on sale. It’s against all that I believe is good and moral for me to go to Walmart in December but I thought . . maybe they would have horseradish. I gave myself a pep talk and headed to Walmart. No horseradish and I didn’t dare look for anything else there. Next stop was United. I doubted they had it but you never know so I went there. Nope . . no horseradish. I was pretty sure Aldi wouldn’t have it either but I figured . . I’m out so I’ll go by there. Nope, no horseradish there either.
I rushed home, got lunch made and then did a few other things so now I’m finally able to sit and knit.
Monday morning, I’ll get to go out again since I need to have the blood work done early in the week.
