The very nice people at the auto repair place dropped my car off last night. Actually, the guy who dropped it off is a friend of my brother-in-law, who recommended this place to us. So today was shopping day.
We went to Wal-Mart and I got some drapes and curtain rods and a few other necessary odds and ends. Then we went to the grocery store. So far I’m still searching for the grocery store where I’ll do most of my shopping. The two I’ve tried so far are generally more expensive than the discount grocery where I used to do all my shopping. Sadly, that chain doesn’t have any stores around here. I spent at least $20-25 more today than I normally would for the same selection of items. Ouch!
There’s still much organizing and sorting to do but I just don’t have the energy right now. I did manage to sort and fold some laundry first thing this morning. Have I mentioned how wonderful it is to actually see Dom in the mornings? And how much easier it is getting the girls up when he can change Bella while I’m feeding Sophie? But the one side effect of the move coinciding with the time change is that the girls are now getting up at 6:30 when Dom’s alarm goes off. They had been getting up at 7:30. Oh well. They love seeing daddy in the mornings and I know he loves seeing them.
Now the girls are napping—i hope Sophie will be out for a while, though that’s not very likely. It’s gray and wet out, a very Novemberish sort of day. I feel like curling up and going to sleep but Sophie is in my room. Maybe I can get comfortable here on the couch. I’ve got some book reviews to write up, too; but my head just isn’t there right now. Maybe once things get a bit more settled.
