What a dork I am. Being home bound in my involuntary hermitage obviously is affecting, effecting?? my filter. Because of my horrible last two days, the blessing afterwards is a day of knowing there is relief. My sister last night called and said she was going to Salem today if I wanted to go too. I wasn't sure how my "digestion" would be the next day, so I said maybe. Well I knew the fallout from the weekend was finally over by this morning and thought, if I didn't eat breakfast, I would be "normal" for a few hours.........and I was.
Kris, Mom and I went first to Target. I got the practical gifts for the kids. You know, the socks and underwear. We stopped at another store where I bought my brother's gift for Max to give him. Then we went to Costco. I have been needing to do a Costco run for weeks. We have been needing the earth friendly laundry soap, toilet paper, Depends undergarments (I call them diapers) cottonelle wipes, etc. I have been getting small amounts of these items at other stores and paying far too much I might add. I also picked up a Kitchen aid dish strainer that I had a $5 coupon off. It's Red! Afterwards, we stop to have lunch at McGraths and I made a good choice for lunch that hopefully would not hurt my "digestion". So I was feeling good. Lunch was nice and I always enjoy spending time with Kris and Mom. So we head for home. As we drive into my driveway I announce "Oh I am so excited". Kris asks "About what?" Did I say that out loud? How embarrassing! Uhhh........."about the stuff I got" I say. Well I can imagine the look Kris gave Mom.
Have I lost all sense of normalcy? A trip to Costco is becoming an event. I did feel a little vindicated when Kris used my bathroom and there was no tissue or wipes to be had and I had to throw her a roll from our Costco run. Sorry Kris. I am sure people assume you use the bathroom:) See! I have no filter.
