Merry Christmas

"I keep looking at this list and it means NOTHING to me. I just don't understand anything on here," mom said about her grocery list. Evidently her processers aren't firing this festive season. She had awoken at 7am to get to Publix early in preparation for our extra guest feast tomorrow. Already she was back at the store for the 2nd time, having forgotten to pick up several items from that list. The boy who helps carry the groceries to the car had reminded her that they will be closing at 7pm tonight. Mom replies, "I hope I don't have to come back!" and he says, "Yeah. But if you do and it's after 7, you'll have to go to Winn Dixie or some other store."

Indeed, she forgot to get Cool Whip for a creme pie and was off for her third trip today. As she left the house, she shouted, "See you in a bit! I'll call you if I've forgotten anything!"

A mere 20 minutes later she returned to the house giggling, "If my phone weren't dead I would have called you because I only wrote Cool Whip _____oz on my list. I didn't know how much Cool Whip to get." I looked towards her bag and saw a container big enough to whip a cool horse.

I don't have to tell you that a VERY short time later I was getting in the car because we're out of Diet Coke and triscuits. I also picked up some beer because at this rate nobody here is going to remember anything anyway!

Happy Holidays!
