Holy shopping carts, Batman! We went to the Costco and joined up today and got provisions and hot dogs and lemonades and buns and toilet paper and olives with jalepenos and garlic in them and a box of spoons that will last me eight years and coffee pods and spinach dip and kleenex and Ritz crackers and paper towels and dinner napkins and pasta bowls and oh my God did I mention the hot dogs? and we got paper plates and pretzels with chocolate and caramel on them and laundry soap and juice and sparkly water and THE HOT DOGS AND LEMONADES WERE ONLY $3.21! $3.21 for two hot dogs and two lemonades!!
('Scuse me while I go breathe into a paper bag now and calm the heck down.)
I'm pretty simple when it comes to shopping. I buy groceries at the Martins and household goods at the Targets. I am brand loyal, buy the same exact thing every single week and month, and usually stay carefully in budget.
This might prove to be a problem...especially if I don't take Rich with me to be the voice of reason and keep me from buying things like car batteries and chandeliers and enough dish soap to wash the apartment building exterior twice over.
Needless to say, we are sufficiently stocked up for a bit, and we even managed to get the turkey for next week. It's safely in the fridge...doing its turkey thing until Thursday morning. On Sunday after Mass we will pick up the other things we need for feasting, but I suspect that we will just go to the regular grocery and not opt for the eight-eight pound bag of potatoes at Costco.
Now I'm off to an early bed, Dearies. I am going to an all day class tomorrow with my guild sisters, and I want to be bright and alert. I don't think I've gone to bed this early since the fourth grade!
