Besides the star stickers in my daily planner I needed to get some 50 day treats. It had been a rough time of it.
I made one kid, any kid, go to the big city (haha) with me. One very reluctuntly volunteered. The closest town that has a home improvement store is 45 minutes away. I knew I could not be alone again and needed the company.
I have been taking one kid shopping with me so I don’t get alcohol. And it was a good thing. By the time we ended our day getting groceries before heading home, we were both tired.
I stopped the cart and looked down the alcohol aisle. I swear they must keep those things dusted and polished. The whole aisle sparkled and glowed with beautiful colors. This is embarrassing, but I moaned out loud. It took all my strength to keep walking. The kid I was with would give me the most grief if I got alcohol and I knew it.
He was my safety net yesterday. Last Saturday, my other son was.
- Licorice (Twizzlers) – a must for the long car ride
- Frozen fancy dinners – there is no such thing as “meatless” where I live. The “big city” has meatless and vegan food!
