Last night Vince and I were talking. He hasn’t left the house in two days – didn’t go out Wednesday or Thursday. That’s unusual for Vince. I said to him “If you manage to stay home tomorrow, you will have been home for 3 full days without leaving the house.” He thought about it a minute and he said “When you were here by yourself, how many days in a row did you stay home without leaving?” Oh, my . . did he think I was going to say three days? I said “Probably six week or more!”
When I first got here, Walmart was not delivering groceries out here so I’d get a 7 – 8 a.m. pickup time every two to three weeks and I’d run to Walmart and pick up my groceries curbside, never get out of the car, and run back home. Once Walmart started delivering out here, I never left unless it was to go get Addie and for most of the time Vince wasn’t here, I didn’t get her much.
I was concerned about getting sick and not being able to take care of Rita and Boots so I figured the best thing to do was stay home.
I’m not sure he believes me. He said “You didn’t go out to eat?” NO! How does he not know how much I dislike going out to eat? I did do the whatever you call it where they deliver food to your house . . I did that twice – one night when Addie was here and one day when I was starving for fried fish. He said “You didn’t go to Hobby Lobby?” NO! I ordered a few things from Hobby Lobby online but if I needed anything, I just ordered it.
Then I asked him . . Could you stay home for six weeks? He said he could not because there were things he needs. I asked what. He looked around the room and said “light bulbs”. Really? Then he said “I kinda like to pick out my own groceries.” I wanted to say “Why, they rot in the fridge!” but I figured that wasn’t a good thing to say. I told him “I don’t mind someone else picking out my groceries and we seem to be doing fine with what someone else picks out.
I just cannot figure out how why he loves going out so much but I know he cannot figure out why I love not going out.
I would almost be willing to bet that today he finds a reason to go to town. Weekends are more crowded so we generally try to not go out on weekends so he’s either going to go at least five days without going out or he’s going to go to town today. We’ll see.
