Taking a muscle relaxant for my back before I go to sleep at night has made getting up in the morning a lot easier due to the lack of pain. The only bad side affect is that it makes this low energy person that I am even lower in energy come morning.
Today I had to watch Bells for my dd. This went better than I thought it would as God was merciful and Isabella was in a great mood. When dd came home, I had to go to the supermarket. You see, today is my dd’s special friend’s birthday. Having my bd on the 26th of December, my parents always made sure it didn’t get lost in the shuffle of the holidays so I believe in celebrating birthdays properly whenever possible (see Happy Birthday entry).
Anyway, I went to the supermarket to get the ingredients for his special day’s dinner. Sirloin burgers with portabello mushrooms, etc., etc. I did not want to go to the supermarket. I just wanted to vegetate and do as little thinking as possible. The nap I took did not refresh my mind so I was thinking extra hard. I had finally made it to the last stop – the bakery to get fresh rolls. Not wanting to block the aisle, I left my cart in an out of the way place and when I had gotten the rolls went to retrieve said cart. It wasn’t there. I looked around and just could not find it! When a store manager happened by I asked him what to do about it and he made an announcement for everyone in the store to check their carts and make sure they had the right one and to return the wrong one to the bakery department. Nothing.
To be truthful, I have taken the wrong cart once or twice. However, I would realize it was mine when the items in it didn’t look familiar! Well, I guess you can guess the rest. Yes, I had to start all over again! I was near to tears. This isn’t a little corner market. It is a big store. Well, I shopped all over again, forgetting only one thing and dinner was a success.
I am looking forward to my sleep tonight. blessings, g
