Can I Count This As A Workout? 🤔

Saturday, October 24, 2015

So, the hubby is working crazy hours (he leaves at 5am and back home at 11:30pm) Saturday to Saturday this whole week. I know I'm low on groceries and putting it off until Monday when the little guy (he's 5) is in school just isn't going to cut it this time. I've got to bring him with. So, sadly, I make my list and try to keep it simple so we can just get in and out. My friends, I'm here to let you know, there's no such thing as a simple trip to the grocery store on a Saturday morning with a headstrong 5 year old tagging along. Dodging other crazy shoppers and intercepting whatever treasure the little monkey had found to put in the cart and actually getting what was on my list we made it halfway through the store. Then of course he tells me he's got to go to the bathroom. Number two 😐 . Lol, I'm laughing about this now but I can assure you that at the time I was not a happy camper. I wasn't mad at him, you understand. Just the situation and how I totally expected that to happen. Mad isn't even the right word to use.. Maybe annoyed would be better. Anyway, people in the store must have thought me a very grumpy mother ( which is totally not true). I took comfort in seeing other mothers there shopping with more than one child accompanying them, lol. We kind of gave each other a head nod upon passing. Anyway, we finally made it out of there and not one broken egg. I forgot to mention we took the puppy into the vet this morning to be neutered before we went shopping and that was not an easy task either but we managed. Both of them crying. The puppy cuz he was afraid and the lil guy because he thought the puppy was never coming home. We'll be on our way to pick him back up soon. It's just now 1pm and I've got cleaning still to do and some groceries still to put away. I can count all this craziness as a workout, right? 😂 This is my first blog and I feel like I've written a book. Sorry if it was boring to read but it was therapeutic for me, lol. Have a great day all!!

    ah, such is the life of being a parent as there are usually a lot of different things that do come up in a day. I have to admit it is easier now to watch other parents deal with there little ones while shoping than it was when mine were going up. Enjoy your weekend.
