Yesterday was a very productive day. I got some laundry done and went grocery shopping with my mom, sisters and baby M; it was a girls day out. I have to admit, I can’t go grocery shopping with out my mom or sisters. If I do, I will be there for hours and hours. Baby M doesn’t like being in the cart (she can only sit there for about 10 minutes). She wants to be out to closely look at the different types of food and wants to help out by “pushing” the cart.
The store we normally go to just got a new set of carts and they were A LOT smaller and didn’t have two tiers like the old ones. They are the worst carts ever! If you have a big family like I do, then you would definitely understand that small carts are no good. We only go grocery shopping once a week so that cart filled up pretty fast. We even used the space where baby M is “supposed” to sit. There was no choice but to let baby M walk around and boy, oh boy, that was a workout for me.
Baby M would slyly look at me, smirk and run! She runs really fast so off I go running for her too. The worst part about this was not the running, but, was my pants! I did not have a pair of jeans or sweatpants since they were in the dryer when I left. So, I was left with my old dress pants which were a little loose on me. Loose pants and running is not a very good combo. Thank goodness I was wearing a long parka or else I would have flashed the entire store! Baby M did this a couple of times and she eventually stopped. I had to explain to her that her behaviour was not acceptable – basically the whole spiel of getting lost and getting run over by other carts.
Yesterday was quite eventful, sooo eventful that I decided to sleep in today (which I rarely do) and go to the gym later on the day. I love having Mondays off!
I hope everyone is having a great Monday.
Now off I go to start my day.
