I usually never go grocery shopping without a list, especially at Walmart because I tend to get sidetracked down the plastic bin isle and buy more bins for things I'm supposed to be getting rid of. That was one of the things on my to do list today. Start the pile for getting rid of.
Any hoo.... off I went to Walmart and upon getting into the car I realized I forgot the 25.00 gift certificate Dave received for Christmas from his employer, which we decided to spend on groceries. Instead of tracking snow back into the house I opened the garage door and hollered for Dave to please look on the dining room table and find the gift certificate that was laying there in plain sight. Hollering back says he: " I don't see it." Says me: "Well, it's laying right there on the table in the envelope with the pic of a big Christmas bulb on the front..... nope he still can't see it. So I come back in the house tracking snow and go into the dining room and see the durn thing laying right there in plain sight.
So me being a bit snarly says to him " maybe they need to check your eye sight on Thurs. instead of your butt". ( he's having a routine colonoscopy on Thurs). I know... not very nice of me.
So off I go to Walmart. The weather today was freezing cold with a nasty wind that had me wishing for a hot flash on the way into the big Super Store. Grabbed a cart and started to dig through my purse.... Oh s##! yep.... my list was laying back home on the dining room table! Now are you thinking what I'm thinking? Why didn't man see it laying there when he looked for the gift certificate........ oh yeah.... his mind was elsewhere today. Then my snarly attitude lightened slightly as I recalled that this was the second time in the last few weeks I'd gone off and forgot my list on the table. I chuckled and thought to myself what a couple of old foggies we're getting to be. At least we seem to be losing our faculties at the same pace.
After checking out my cart full of things I decided to give Dave a quick call to see if I had remembered everything on my list ( don't ask why I waited until I was completely checked out and on my way to the car). I had most everything on the wayward list except my favorite instant iced tea mix of which I can't live without. So I dashed back into the big warm store and bought the tea and a pair of jeans.

Perhaps this is the size list that would be helpful. At least Dave could maybe see it..... ya think?!
( as a side note..... nothing on the first list got accomplished today)
