I Will Try a Little Post When I Have Some Energy

I am sitting here sipping Decaf black coffee with SF syrup because I am not allowed any creamer. I have been drinking tea the past few days but I really needed some coffee. It really isn’t that good.

Hubby has been great running errands, doing dishes, and fixing my meals and his meals. Although since I am eating the above at each meal, it isn’t that hard to open a jar. I do have some applesauce totally blenderized once in a while. Hubby has also been making me SF Jello.

And wow, those baby food jars are expensive. But I am saving the jars and caps because they come in handy to store so many little things.

Hubby went to the market on Sunday to get the things I needed and some rolls and cold cuts for himself. The poor guy looked all over for the deli which he could not find. He also couldn’t find the rolls he likes. They were either sold out or he couldn’t find the second set of shelves with just rolls. So no cold cuts and rolls for him. However he did want some Totino pizza rolls for snacks. He looked for almost 20 minutes for them. He looked in the stand up freezer cases. He found the pizza but no pizza rolls. He finally found them in a case in front of the fresh meat. The deli is really in an obscure place in the store. He missed it. He had me hysterically laughing( which hurt) telling me of his frustration and that nothing in the store makes logical sense. He is right about that. I never thought about it because I do all of the grocery shopping and I just know where everything is until they rearrange things.

So he is going today and I drew him a map of the store. He says he thinks he can find the deli now and the rolls. However, I have a list of about 20 items because it is 6% off Senior Discount Day. Hopefully he will remember to put our phone # in because he doesn’t like carrying a bonus card. I am sure it will be another amusing story when he gets home. I told him to ask for Virginia or another employee to ask if he can’t find something but he probably won’t. Men!! 

Hubby informed me that he took the last box of Kleenex and asked me to order some in bulk online. So I found a good deal at Amazon around the same price I would pay at Dollar Tree. 

He also wanted some Ming Tsai fry pans so I ordered those from HSN using Ebates to get 2% back. 

I am exhausted most of the time. This surgery really wore me out. So I sleep when ever I am tired whether that be daytime or nighttime. I noticed that Hubby hasn’t done any laundry and there are about 3 full loads there. So if he survives the trip to the grocery store, I will ask him later to do the laundry using the washer and dryer. I will fold it in between naps.

I am tired now so off to sleep. I will try to write when I am up to it.

Oh my! I know you said you’d be eating baby food but until I saw your jars, it hadn’t sunk in. I’m sorry, it sounds really hard?

Do any stores in your area offer grocery pick up or delivery? It might be a solution to your husband’s shopping. I’ve done Walmart pickup a few times and Sprouts delivery once. Both are very easy.

Hi Rhonda,

It is hard but it is something that has to be done so that everything heals well and I don't have to go back in and have it redone.

We do have delivery but no pickup. I offered to place an order and have it delivered but he is an "independent guy" and turned it down. He did well yesterday and found the deli and got everything on the list.

Good for him! Grocery shopping is complicated, there are so many brands and varieties and it does seem the stores move things around often.n
I predict you are going to need a smaller wardrobe as your treatment continues

Hi AD, this is Chris. I am encouraged to see you are feeling well enough to write a little. You are going through a lot, but it is good to see you are feeling a little better. Keep resting, we will be here for you. I am glad hubby found the deli. 🙂

Hi! You're husband struggling in the store made me laugh so hard! When my husband goes to the store i have to write a detailed list including locations and what things might be around the product i want. Its a full recon mission and sometimes he still cant find things. Its hilarious, whenever i see other men in the store just walking around with the glazed over look in their eyes i feel so bad!
