Day 7....hard day

Today was hard, and I am weary.  My kitchen looks like it has been overtaken by the dishes, my child spilled the most red kool aid ever all over my white carpet, and I wasn't feeling like meatloaf. BUT, I made meatloaf.  It was tasty, and I got to teach Jackson how to use the veggie peeler.  We all sat down together at the table and Jackson told his daddy all about his peeling skills.  Mission accomplished for today.

Tomorrow is grocery day, and honestly I am looking forward to it because I have a plan. I must say that grocery shopping to me is usually the equivalent of a dentist appointment. Actually, I don't mind the dentist compared to groceries.   I just get frustrated, I am not a fan of our local stores, and the prices are insane.  I have tried coupons, but I find myself buying strange things just because they are on sale.  So, I am learning how crucial planning is.  I know...where have I been?  Any idiot knows they should plan before they go to the market, but my brain has been elsewhere.  Now, let me tell you, I can whip around a Lowes or an Ikea like a crazy lady.  I can name prices, give stock updates, and some model numbers...ridiculous.  I know all about tile grades and carpet nap.  But ...put me in the grocery store and I look and feel like a fish out of water.  It is painful.  BUT...there is hope.  I have a plan, again thanks to E Mealz...along with a concise list of what to by according to the isle. It has changed my tune a bit.  Yet, I know tomorrow will be frustrating still, I just have to get used to it!  If I start learning model numbers for Bisquick or something...I might need an intervention. And now to the dishes.........
