New Grocery Store

For the past 6 months I've been drooling over the new grocery store they've been building about 1 mile from our house, at the entrance of our neighborhood.  I'm so excited that when my husband calls me on his way home from work, I can say, "Can you pick up a gallon of milk?" and it will only take him an extra few minutes to get it instead of having to go out of the way to an inconvenient grocery store.  It's also open 24 hours, so I can also say at midnight, "Honey, will you go get me some Klondike Bars?  Please?"

This evening we visited the new grocery store to check it out.  I felt like a country girl who had ventured to the big city as we gawked over the newness of the groceries.  For some reason it was so much more exciting to see tortilla chips at a new grocery store than at Walmart. Everything was so nice and shiny and neat.  As my husband pushed around the grocery cart with Rachel in the seat, George in his infant seat in the back, and the other 5 kids riding while hanging onto the edge of the cart, it was fun to watch people stare.  One man even saluted my husband.

Today I also received our new GPS gadget in the mail today.  It's our first GPS ever.  It is kind of exciting.  We have a road trip planned for August and it will be very handy.  I got it on sale this weekend because they had some good deals at Best Buy for Father's Day.  We used the GPS to direct us to the new store.

That's my day.  Oh and George slept from midnight to 6 AM last night.  We'll see how he does tonight.  I'm expecting to be disappointed.
