I am ashamed to admit it but when I grocery shop now I make my selections based on their weight and bulkiness.
In the good ole days I could take a toddler, a large purse, a baby in a carrier and spend no less than 200.oo on groceries. With the strength of a young woman I would load it all in my van and unload and put it away when I returned home. Looking back I can’t believe I did all that and only drank wine on occasion in the evening. I should have been a day drinker!
These days I trudge down the aisles and seriously consider joining Meals-On-Wheels.
Everything that’s good for me requires cooking and everything that is heavy doesn’t seem worth the effort.
I’m so tired of grocery shopping. I have been grocery shopping for the past 30 years and the only feedback I have gotten is that we don’t have anything to eat in our house. (For the record grocery shopping is the only shopping that fatigues me. Somehow those Macy’s bags don’t seem so heavy.)
Gone are the days of buying beverages by the case to save money. I can only commit to a 12 pack of diet coke and that is if I am having a really good day and I am not having a hot flash. If I’m having a hot flash I am pulling through the drive thru for my diet coke and everyone is on their own for dinner.
