Grocery Geek Part 1


It has been a long day.  It started out nice and peaceful, then the rest of the day happened.  Drove 1 1/2 hours to town, lunch with mom and kids (which was nice), Lego Batman movie, drove home, put away groceries.  All without Robert (because he is working this weekend).  I’m worn out!  Luckily I will be able to sleep in tomorrow, so I’m enjoying some peace and quiet right now before I go to bed.

On another note, I definitely spent way more than I usually do for groceries tonight!  I think it was because I had the kids with me.  I usually shop by myself so I’m not used to having to deal with them… fighting, messing around, being in people’s way, asking for everything, etc.  I felt anxious through the whole store.

I also spent some of our income tax refund on and stocking up again.

So between today’s shopping trip and my online grocery shopping I won’t have to buy much in the month of March.  Mostly produce and dairy products!

Here’s my haul from today:




  • 3 dozen eggs
