Day 821: Power Shop

Today was nuts.

This morning was just seriously one of those mornings where it seemed like everyone and everything was against me.  I'm not going to even delve into all the madness that happened (or how poorly I handled it).

But we did stop for RealFruit Slushes from Sonic on our way home from picking up HH and his broken down bike.  Those are delicious and a cause for a Joyful Moment.

Then we had some crazy storms hit.  Torrential downpours and a tornado warning.  Or watch.  I can't remember.

I had been planning on my weekly grocery trip.  But the rain was coming so hard and fast, there was talk of flooding.  Plus, I didn't feel like getting soaked on my way to and from the car.

So, I took a nap.

Given my level of exhaustion, anytime I successfully get a nap it is a Joyful Moment.

The storms eased up (or so I thought) around dinner time, so I headed out immediately after to get my groceries.  And I did it in record time.  Usually, I get there, list in hand, ready to speed through and then somehow and hour, or two goes by before I make my way back out of the store.  And I'm not really sure what happened, where they went, or why I'm still missing 2-5 things from my list.

But not tonight.  Tonight I somehow was able to stay focused and get what I needed in a relatively short amount of time.

This is always a Joyful Moment because it means more time with my HH.

Wishing you all Joyful Moments and quick, dry grocery trips!

My JM was when my HH walked in the door, after a 7 day trip to Japan. That was just what I needed! And then, even though he hadn't slept in over 24 hours we pulled out some ugly bushes in front and replaced them with rose bushes. Can't wait for the aroma and beauty...

Yay for rose bushes! Mine are starting to bud already and I can't wait!
