Adventures of Motherhood

I am a harried mother of three kids who move at light speed and a husband who lives in a world of words. If that isn't enough, I teach in an elementary school as I slowly watch my hair turn gray.

It's Sunday

It's a grey Sunday here...but the mood is more uplifting. I think the cold is finally on it's way out and now I just have to get rid of my eye infection.

It was a really nice day. The kids all had activities this afternoon so Carmi and I got to go out for coffee and then explore our newly renovated Wal-Mart. I know Carmi hates the Wal-Mart philosophy but you sure can't beat the prices.

He laughs at me, but I have sunk to a new all time low. Imagine being excited that a new grocery store is open and walking around like a kid in the proverbial candy store. I can't help it, but things like that excite me.

I can now get my groceries and shmooze the rest of the store all at one time. The best part is they are open till 9 on Sundays. I know, sad, sad girl. I can here you saying it now! :-)

It was nice just to be able to do something just the 2 of us. We actually got to hold hands as we strolled in the store.

I hope what ever you did or will be doing today is enjoyable!

Enjoy the last bit of the weekend and look forward to a great week ahead!

I'm willing to look past the fact that Wal-Mart is The Great Satan and a purveyor of all that is evil on the retail and community landscape. It gave me some alone time with you, which matters far more than my journalistically-motivated hatred of Sam Walton's empire. And I love holding your hand.

From a photographic perspective, the lighting in their produce department is excellent. Very bright, clean and consistently white. I think I really nailed that pic of the kale - until the sprinklers started to rain on me.

Here's to our next date in the grocery aisle. Wherever that may be.

I'm back from Michele's. From my perch upstairs while I'm supposed to be working (I write fast, so no worries there.)

Our Wal-Mart adventure reinforces how even the most mundane spot on the planet is a fun place to explore when I get to do it with you.

I want to hate wal-mart, I really do, I hate the fact that I feel like a hypocrite every time I go in, yet do I stop going? Nope. Going there tomorrow as a matter of fact hee!

I don't know which is more romantic and sweet, your post or Carmi's comment. You two are inspirational. :)

First of all...ahhhh what a sweet thing to say Carmi!

Second...I hate WalMart but I can't stop going there b/c no one can beat their prices! I try to go only a few times each month, just when I need to buy several item or alot. Short trips I HAVE to find somewhere else.

Hi from Michele's!

That sounds like a lovely day. Isn't it nice when you can spend a little time with your sweetie without the kids!

It sounds like a lovely Wal-Mart date. I have to admit that my husband and I do tend to spend a lot of time in Wal-Mart. (ours are open 24 hours though)

I would love to hate Wal-Mart, too. Unfortunately, it is the only grocery/general store within 30 miles of my house. In order to get everything needed, I would have to hit no less than 4 small stores (spread out, of course) - or Wal-Mart.

First -- you guys are the most incredible couple -- you warm my heart!

I can't hate Walmart. Sorry. Anyone that can sell me six months' worth of contact lenses for $30?

Today has been a very grey day around here. Rainy and cold-perfect weather to snuggle up with a good book and a big mug of hot chocolate!

Happy weekend to you...Michele sent me!

I laughed out loud when I read your post - my honey and I have a ball grocery shopping (we love our food) and look forward to our weekly Granville island coffee & groceries trip. Besides, the grocery store we go to has a miniature train track set up overhead, and that totally appeals to my inner child...

I love when stores are open late, no matter the day of the week.
Though an interesting fact... Los Angeles does not allow SuperWalmarts, in an effort to protect the mom & pop businesses.
